In a bid to provide guidance to young Nigerians who seek self-actualization, an organisation, Route A Initiative, has been launched. While starting off with a focused group session with a group of youths at its headquarters in Lagos, on December 8, 2018, the founder, Nike Fagbule, revealed that the initiative aims to change the narrative of Nigerians youths as they hold the key to the nation’ s progress.

“This session is a first step for us on our mission to activate the potential of over 1,000,000 Nigerian youths through strategic awareness creation; build capacity of over 100,000 youths annually through provision of free vocational/technical training opportunities; and link over 100,000 youths annually to internship/mentorship opportunities that will facilitate productivity,” Fabule said.

“We are here to change the narrative of the Nigerian youths, because we truly believe that the future of our nation is in the hands of the next generation – we call on all stakeholders to join us to achieve these set goals.”

At the session held in Lagos, the group was able to identify and discuss some of the challenges that confront the youths and also proffered solutions to address those challenges.

Some of the major highlights at the session included: a break-out session to strategize on impactful solutions for driving youth productivity; and a panel discussion involving a panel of young, accomplished pace-setters such as: Jay Chikezie, Co-founder Nairabox; Isioma Osaje, CEO, Agency 106; Funbi Sowande, Country Manager, Tramotina; and Osagie John-Osarenz, CEO, The Zone Agency.
