The perspective from millennials session is a forum for millennials to tell us their views on Nigeria and how the youth can move the country forward. The critical questions here are
• What should Nigeria be?
• What can Nigeria be?
• What should we be doing now as young Nigerians to make the answers to questions 1&2 above become a reality?
• What should the government, corporate world and the citizens be doing to ensure that the answers to questions 1&2 above become a reality?
