The Executive Director Annual African Youth Economic & Business Summit Group, AAYEBSG, Comrade Edede Franklin and his management team, yesterday, paid a courtesy visit to the Director General of the National Orientation Agency, NOA concerning the forthcoming summit scheduled to hold in September, and the group's proposal to the agency for endorsement and partnership, on the request of the DG who had called for the visit to enable the group explain to him and the NOA Board, the areas they seek partnership for.


Speaking at the meeting, Comrade Edede Franklin, told the DG who was represented by one of his aides, that this year's summit seeks to address the problems of poverty, unemployment, and general insecurity on the African continent, through extensive interactions and presentations by stakeholders in both private and public sectors, and security experts across Africa.

He said the theme of the summit is in line with President Buhari's tripartite policy agenda of improving the economy, fighting corruption, and insecurity, and is also in synch with NOA's objective of promoting positive values in the society through mass orientation and transformation, adding that a program such as this seeks to transform and orientate the youths, hence the National Orientation Agency, NOA, is an important strategic partner.

While informing the DG of the group's plan to invite notable speakers like Julius Malema of South Africa, Prof. Patrick Lumumba of Kenya, etc, he said the group would need the support of the agency in the areas of logistics, like media coverage, hall etc. 

In his response, the DG's representative who was visibly satisfied with the Executive Director's explanations, assured the group of the agency's endorsement and support.
