Nigerian Economic Summit Group(NESG) 2021-2022 #NES27 Essay Contest for Nigerian Undergraduates

The Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) is pleased to announce the theme for the #NES27 Essay Contest – “Securing Our Future: The Fierce Urgency of Now”.

With a market of over 200 million, coastal access to facilitate trade, and abundant human and natural resources, Nigeria has the potential to become a continental and global force that influences economics and policies.

Instead, they dwell on insecurity, unemployment, poverty, insurgency, inflation, and overall uncertainty. As insecurity thrives in Nigeria, potential foreign investors are beginning to choose other countries over Nigeria, while some current investors are exploring exit strategies.

This call is for innovative ideas that clearly demonstrate the urgency for a collaborative response by all stakeholders (government at all levels, private sector and the civil society) towards securing the future of our dear nation.
