SEPT, 29, 2014.
[Yaba, Lagos]

Imagine a summit like never experienced, where Nigerian youths and especially students from the higher institutions in Lagos state such as Lagos State University (LASU), Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH), Federal College of Education Technical (FCET), Yaba College of Technology (YCT), and the first choice institution, University of Lagos (UNILAG), as well as some selected senior secondary school student participants, would all be converging at a life-transforming summit of the year 2014.

The summit also known as “THE AMBASSADORS SUMMIT” will be held in the main auditorium of the University of Lagos. This will take up nothing less than two thousand (2,000) Nigerian youth (mostly students). The Ambassadors, a Youth Empowerment Initiative, is a brainchild of ‘The Ambassadors Radio Show’ on Nigeria’s First University Radio Station, Unilag 103.1FM which is aired live on Sundays by 5pm to 6pm. This initiative was established by Prince Joshua Oyeniyi, a multiple award winning speaker, writer, University of Lagos Ambassador and radio host, to provide solutions to the challenges of unemployment, unemployability, lack of marketable skill set, poor business skills and entrepreneurial powers, low self esteem, amongst many other encountered by the youth population through seminars, symposia, forums, conferences and workshops powered by highly experienced, skilled and successful Nigerians referred to as ‘THE AMBASSADORS’. This summit will be part of a nationwide effort to draw attention for the good of the Nigerian youths with a theme of the year tagged “You can be more!” The set theme serves to motivate every participant to do their parts in further impacting every other Nigerian youth, so that they can as well get inspired and equipped in the 21st century. According to the planned concept of the summit, over two thousand intelligent and educated youths from higher learning institutions in Lagos state as well as senior secondary school students will be spreading words about the important role of great acts of an individual to be more.

One of the very great things to note is that THE AMBASSADORS SUMMIT will be majorly partnered by a standard and viable organization which is both a locally and internationally recognized African Youth Impacting and empowerment foundation called “GLEEDH FOUNDATION”

GLEEEDH FOUNDATION, one of the nation’s reputable standard nongovernmental organization founded by Mr. Dayo Israel, has affirmed to collaborate with THE AMBASSADORS of the first University Radio station, Unilag 103.1FM to organize a first of its kind AMBASSADORS SUMMMIT 2014 which will come-up on the 2nd October 2014 by 9am.
