Technology is changing the world as we know it. Now more than ever, Africa needs leaders who can take the continent forward in its quest to be a valuable meber of the globalised value chain. Africa needs to take its place in the global village, not as a receiver of aid but a formidable producer of value-added goods.
It is a time when African leaders ought to saddle up and negotiate trade deals that benfit the general African populace and steer away from myopic, self-serving bad deals. The young people of Africa will not stand and quietly watch as the continent is mortgaged to the highest bidder at the expense of basic liberties and freedoms.
Many a youth formations across the continent are self-organising to capacitate one another in their quest to actively participate in the rejuvenation of the mother continent.

Day 1 will be focused on Achieving Socio-Economic Cooperation & Integration
