Seyi Makinde will on April 24, 2024 at the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan host former Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, former Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi and other dignitaries for the maiden edition of Rt. Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin Students’ Legislative Summit.

Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki is expected to give a keynote address while Dr. Kayode Fayemi will be the Guest Speaker at the Summit.

The Summit will hold at the prestigious International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan, Oyo State capital.

The 3-day Summit organised for about one thousand members of Students Representatives Council, SRC, Students Union Governments, SUG and other students drawn from tertiary institutions in the Southwest, Kwara State inclusive is tagged “Roles of quality legislation in Nation Building.”

Also invited as resource persons, panelists and moderators are accomplished political leaders, seasoned legislators, cerebral administrators as well as erudite academics and scholars.

The 3rd and final day of the Summit (25th April, 2024) will feature panel discussions, interactive sessions and insightful presentations by the delegates on key components of national development.

The Honoree of the Summit, Rt. Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin said the Summit is in line with his avowed belief in nurturing and grooming students and youths for leadership responsibilities and national development.

The Speaker said the Summit was designed to increase and advance students’ knowledge and understanding about legislation, highlight the vital importance and significance of good laws to national development, as well as discuss and expound legislative constraints and bottlenecks.

“Grooming the next generation of leaders is tantamount to laying a solid foundation for the rapid transformation and development of any nation. This has been one of my focal points in the last few years. If the argument that leaders are made and not born is true, then we must constantly put together programs and activities that will impact our youths positively and prepare them for the task of nation building as future leaders of Nigeria.

“This Summit is also another way of bridging the gap between the current leaders and the next generation of leaders. It is meant to connect the students with the cream in the society for tutoring, mentoring and learning.

“The maiden edition of the Summit will be used to harness the students’ perspectives on key issues of national development which will bring about inclusive engagement. Youths voices must not only be heard but must also reflect in Government policies. They are stakeholders in the building of a strong and virile nation,” Oyo Speaker said.

He added that beside the theme of the Summit, “Roles of Quality Legislations in Nation Building,” other key components of national development that will be appraised and discussed by the delegates are Power, Security, True Federalism, Health Care, Education, Agriculture and Food Security, Technology, Employment and Human Capital Development, Environment, Culture and Tourism.
