On April 10, JAN students from Caro Favored School Ajegunle, New State Secondary School Mushin, Akande Dahunsi Memorial Secondary School, Ikoyi, and Victoria Island Senior Secondary School joined children from Dustbin Estate, Hope Center and Transformers Youth Development Initiative for a private viewing of the blockbuster ‘Black Panther’ movie. The event, organized by “Enough is Enough Nigeria”, a youth-led organization advocating for good governance and accountability in Nigeria, incited thought-provoking conversations among the youngsters about what it would take for Nigeria to be like the fictional Wakanda nation and the students to be like the African heroes in the movie.
.There was a panel discussion featuring Jared Murray Bruce of SilverBird Television, Yemi Adamolekun of EiE Nigeria and Kadaria Ahmed of DM Nigeria, who challenged the students to imagine an Africa like the fictional Wakanda, where resources were fully harnessed by all for the progress of her citizens. The students’ in turn were ecstatic whilst sharing their dreams and hopes for Nigeria, with a resolve to continue to challenge status quo and see themselves as problem solvers. The panel discussion ended on a high note with Mr. Murray Bruce tasking the youngsters to boldly take up their role in the building and development of the country.
