Coordinator of the group, Bisayo Busari-Akinnadeju made the call at the launch of the conference with the hashtag, #IamNigerian, in Abuja. While noting that differences in political affiliations have been a bane in the country’s unity and progress, she regretted that youths have been used by politicians to perpetrate violence. She said her inspiration and greatest drive for embarking on the project is due to her love for her country, which is also inspired, by the love her father gave the country. She also explained that the 2019 conference with the theme, ‘beaming the light on the Nigerian child’ is aimed at reaching the younger generation to teach them patriotism from the cradle. Akinadeju said the project is being expanded with the National Orientation Agency (NOA) on board, the Federal Road safety, NYSC, and other education bodies.
