Six public secondary schools in Delta South and Central Senatorial Districts are to compete in quiz, essay writing and poetry as part of strategic efforts by a non-governmental organization, VLADNELL Leadership Education Foundation to promote leadership education.

The schools are: Army Day Secondary School 1 in Uvwie Local Government Area, Alegbo Secondary School, Uvwie Local Government Area, Ujevwu Secondary School in Udu Local Government Area, Ekete Secondary School, Udu Local Government Area, Nana Model College in Warri South Local Government Area and Delta Secondary School, Warri South Local Government Area.

President of VLANDELL Leadership Education Foundation, Lion Lawrence Sokoh  who made the disclosure in Warri, Delta State during a press conference organized by VLADNELL Leadership Education Foundation in collaboration with the Centre for Good Governance and Sustainable Development to mark this year’s 2018 UN International Youth Day, noted that as advocates, trainers and capacity resource providers in leadership education, their approach is segmented into In- school Leadership Educational Programme, IN-SLEP and Out- School Leadership Educational Programme, Out-SLEP.

While noting that the IN-SLEP is targeted at youths in tertiary and secondary schools as well as out- of school youths and the girl-child, Sokoh stressed the need for young people to be given opportunity to acquire quality education, leadership innovation, leisure and security.

According to VLADNELL Leadership Education Foundation, safe space should be provided for youths in tandem with the theme of the 2018 International Youth Day, so as to promote an inclusive youth development towards the 2030 agenda.

The NGO enjoined eligible youths who are yet to register to take advantage of the ongoing INEC voters’ registration exercise and register so that their voice will be heard in leadership positions henceforth, just as it called on government at all levels, civil society and faith based organizations as well as the organized private sector to guarantee the implementation of the theme of the UN 2018 International Youth Day.

 Chairman, Centre for Good Governance and Sustainable Development, Umuko- Ejoh Oyemi and Programme Director, VLADNELL Leadership Education Foundation, Mr. Barry Eboma spoke succinctly on the need to encourage as well as promote intellectual competition among young people so as to ensure all-round development in Nigeria.
