5 Reasons You Should Attend #YNAGOsogbo Conference
Generation Y! or Millennials are those born in the early 1980s as starting birth years and mid-1990s and early 2000s as ending birth years. Although characteristics vary by region, this generation is generally known for increased use and familiarity with communication, media and digital technologies. To what extent has this group of people influenced political processes in their various communities? What has been the contribution of Gen Y to governance in partisan politics? Are they leaders of today or still leaders of tomorrow?
