INEC holds Youth Summit


- Advertisment -

The 2015 general elections provide a unique opportunity for stakeholders to harness the potentials of young people for credible elections and democratic development. Conversely, it avails young people the a strategic platform to unleash their potentials as voters, aspirants/candidates and election management officials. The Independent National Electoral Commission recognizes the critical role young people play in deepening electoral democracy. This recognition is exhibited in the decision of the present leadership of the commission headed by Professor Attahiru Jega to mainstream youth in election management.

Consistent stakeholder engagement is one of INEC’s strategies of boosting citizens’ confidence in the electoral process as well as engendering peaceful and credible elections.

To this and in line with INEC’s strategic plan of action, a National Youth Summit on the 2015 elections is convened to bring young people from across Nigeria and beyond to engage with the electoral commission ahead of the 2015 elections. The summit will seek to mobilize youth support for credible and peaceful elections, enhance electoral knowledge of youth and most importantly mobilize youth support for the electoral commission in achieving its statutory mandate.

The high point of the summit will be the investiture and formal presentation of the INEC Youth Ambassadors. The event will also evolve with a Youth Declaration on Nonviolent 2015 Elections and draft INEC Youth Engagement Strategy.

INEC and its partners invite applications from young people in youth organizations, government intuitions, political parties, socio-cultural groups, religious institutions, students, think-tanks, media organizations, development partner etc.

Registering online is not automatic admittance to the summit.  Reservations or online application will be reviewed by the program team before the selection of participants. Only selected participants will be invited by the electoral commission to participate in the youth summit. Selected participants will be supported by the organizers to attend the summit.
