Nigerian Economic Summit Group Essay Contest 2021 | NESG


Nigerian Economic Summit Group Essay Contest 2021: The Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) has announced the #NES27 Essay Contest theme: “Securing Our Future: The Fierce Urgency of Now.”Nigerian Economic Summit Group Essay Contest 2021 | NESG

Nigeria has the potential to become a continental and global force that influences economics and policies, with a market of over 200 million people, coastal access to assist trade, and enormous human and natural resources.

Nigeria’s socioeconomic potential has a lot of promise. Today’s headlines, however, do not reflect Nigeria’s economic potential. Rather, they focus on insecurity, unemployment, poverty, insurgency, inflation, and general unease.

This is a request for new solutions that clearly highlight the need for a joint response from all stakeholders (government at all levels, corporate sector, and civil society) in order to secure the future of our beloved country.

About Nigerian Economic Summit (NES)

The NESG Bridge Fellowship is intended to inspire and empower a new generation of young visionary Nigerian leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct policy-oriented research and advocacy for national development.
