NLI and First Bank partner to groom emerging leaders

-

- Advertisment -

The Nigeria Leadership Initiative (NLI) is partnering with First Bank of Nigeria Limited, Nigeria’s foremost financial institution to enhance capacity building among youths through the Future Leaders Seminar scheduled for 28 May 2014 in Lagos.

The Future Leaders program (FLP) is a seminar conceived to help mobilize and groom a critical mass of emerging leaders in Nigeria and in the Diaspora who will emerge as tomorrow’s public and private sector leaders. The FLP targets credible young Nigerians, between the ages of 25 – 35, with outstanding leadership attributes and accomplishments. Executed within three (3) days of intensive text based knowledge sharing, the FLP aims at creating a growing global network of community-spirited Nigerian leaders committed to taking responsibility for driving positive change in Nigeria.

Commenting, NLI’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Yinka Oyinlola stated that “Past participants in the seminar inducted as NLI Associates have achieved prominence as top corporate Executives, public service and political leaders as well as leading reformers in the civil society sector. Adding that, NLI Associates continue to exhibit value-based leadership in their spheres of endeavors with the promise to continue into the future to serve as a force for good in Nigeria’’.

According to FirstBank’ Head, Marketing & Corporate Communication, Mrs. Folake Ani-Mumuney, “the Bank views its partnership with NLI as a strategic platform for enhancing youth empowerment and capacity building among future leaders”. Ani-Mumuney said such youth development interventions form an integral part of the Bank’s social responsibility initiatives. “FirstBank is delighted to be part of the NLI network which represents a sustainable way of passing on leadership and entrepreneurship ideals from respected and proven individuals to the next generation. We are confident that the nation stands to gain immensely from the values based leadership of the leaders that NLI has already produced and those it will produce in the future through this seminal Future Leaders Program.,” she said.

In the course of the seminar, these young emerging leaders will have their leadership skills, knowledge and confidence significantly honed and enhanced in preparation for them to assume a transformative role in the future development of Nigeria. Case studies and active small group discussion sessions are an integral part of the FLP. The highpoint of the FLP is the FLS class project. The class project is a voluntary project undertaken by each FLS session and represents a practical way of teaching these young leaders social responsibility and inculcating in them the value and importance of giving back and adding value to society.
