As part of our work in advocating for best practices in youth development work, BNI President/CEO Pharm. John Oluwadero had an advocacy meeting with the Executive Governor of Ekiti State, and the Chair of Nigeria Governors Forum, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on the need for strategic coordination of youth work practice in the State.
Ekiti State Government has a strong track record in demonstrating commitment to youth development practice. In 2013, BNI represented the Ekiti State Government at the First Commonwealth Conference on Education and Training of Youth Workers, which held at the University of South Africa.
Following the advocacy meeting, Governor expressed his interest in promoting youth work in the State.
