Kennedy Ekezie-Joseph is the founder of the Calabar Youth Council for Women’s Rights; a non-governmental organization based in Nigeria that expands access to rights for women by tackling female genital mutilation, gender-based violence, domestic abuse, and promoting access to education for the girl-child.
He was honoured with a Queen’s Young Leaders Award by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth of England at the age of 20 for the work he is doing to promote women’s rights in Nigeria, also honoured by President Obama’s YAL Initiative and he is a One Young World Ambassador.
Last week, I mention that the Nigerian youths should try another strategy to solve the contemporary social problems confronting the Nigerian society since then have been asked to mention the strategy.
Take a look at the work of 21-year-old Kennedy Ekezie-Joseph in Cross River State and draw out how you can contribute to the development of the people at grassroots levels to solve the contemporary social problems confronting the Nigerian society.
Nation-building is the responsibility of every Nigerian, including me, not just the responsibility of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Before you join any protest ask yourself what have you contribute to the development of the people at grassroots levels?
