His name Joshua Alade.
Joshua Alade is the convener of the newly formed Nigerian Youth SDGs Network, a coalition of youth-focused and youth-led organizations aimed at achieving youth inclusion in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Nigeria
He started the network because of the need for a framework to harmonize, monitor and enhance Nigerian youth’s engagements around the Global Goals, aimed at the successful realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Nigeria.
The Goal of the network is one voice as youth organizations working around the SDGs in Nigeria and it has been interesting as Nigerian youth from across the country have been embracing the Network: from Port Harcourt to Lagos, Ibadan to Abuja, and Uyo to Jos and Kano – everyone is understanding that we need a youth coalition for the SDGs in Nigeria.
The Network has successfully hosted the first ever Nigerian Youth SDGs Summit last August in Lagos, and which had delegates from across Nigeria and even abroad.
Joshua Alade is on a journey to push for the actualization of the Sustainable Development Goals in Nigeria and he and his team are giving their all for that.
Watch out for this guy in 2018. More to come.
