Description

AFRICA 2050 VISION

Africa 2050 is a shared passion by THE CIRCLE MEDIA PLUS and AFRICAN VOICE NEWSPAPER UK and is becoming a movement of passionate youth to see a developed Africa before 2050. Having organised Africa 2050 summit in UNIVERSITY OF KENYA NAIROBI and KAMPALA UNIVERSITY, it has become a vision to run with extending our tentacles to other Universities across Africa to reach out to the Future leaders of this great continent to wake up and make a change.
Africa has been perceived as a dark continent and dwarfed by International Media. The continent is characterised by poverty, diseases, political instability, war and corruption. This is a call to take limit off Africa and position her in a path of victory and success before 2050. The share vision of 2050 is for Africa to soar higher and take her rightful position ensuring all nations within the continents are developed.


THEME: WHO WILL FIX NIGERIA?
After all the struggle for democracy, we had rightly thought that leaders will transform government into an institution of service to our people. But from all available evidence, we were mistaken. Our Civilian leaders have made it into the biggest business that Nigerians have ever known. Now to control this financial empire called government, our politicians have shown that they are prepared to go to war.
The texture and worth of any democracy is measured by the level of the welfare of the citizenry; which makes the best definition of democracy, that of a political system that ensures the greatest good for the greatest number of the people. Nigeria is still far from what democracy ought to be…Miseries radiate on the faces of people so much that a lot of citizens are either running to Saudi Arabia to at least be comfortable while others are in a mad rush for the American Visa to go to Uncle Sam’s country where democracy is perceived differently as the land of limitless opportunities for anybody who has the capacity to think and work.

AREA OF FOCUS (SUB -THEME)
The worth of democracy in Nigeria
Can Nigerian Politicians fix Nigeria?
The leadership that can fix Nigeria
Empowering the youth towards National Development
