Golden Minds Nigeria National Conference & 10th Anniversary 2014

Our 2nd National Conference is here! The National Conference is tagged, Heartbeat Conference 2014, and the theme is A Decade of Golden Minds Nigeria: Challenges, Opportunities and Possibilities. Our First National Conference was held in Lagos, where we hosted the then Minister of Information, Prof. Dora Akunyili (ably represented) on the luncheon of our national magazine, Jingle.

This Conference will be a special one for two reasons: First, Golden Minds Nigeria will be marking its 10th Anniversary as a body of youths for positive change in Nigeria! The body was founded on July 16, 2004.

Also, our great country, Nigeria, is 100 years old, after the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates in 1914 by Lord Lugard.

These two occasions are very significant to us, and we are going to be commemorating these landmarks at our National Conference to be held in Benin, Edo State, the Heartbeat of the Nation, where Golden Minds was founded in the University of Benin 10 years ago!

Venue: Benin City, Edo State
