The award ceremony which will hold at the Shehu Ya’Adua Centre on Nov. 29th, has as its theme: “Peaceful Election, Good Governance and The Role of Nigeria”.

According to the statement, the 500 youth leaders who would be converging on Abuja would also use the opportunity of the awards to sensitise Nigerian Youths on the need to serve as the agent of positive change.
