As part of plans to keep the national community and the government updated on the successes of its yearlong campaign on “End Sexual Harassment and Bribery in Nigerian Colleges”, the founder of Dream Project for Africa, Oluwabukola Michael Nelson has declared his team’s intention to meet with President Mohammadu Buhari in May 2016 in order to present official documentations and reports from its campaign and researches that could aid government’s efforts at rebuilding the crashing educational system.
“DPA will keep this tradition for as long as the organization exist”, said Oluwabukola.
He also explained that over the past year, since April 2015, Dream Project for Africa has provided free consultation worth N20 million in logistics and human hour on behalf of the government and has contributed to resolving issues ranging from academic corruption to fight against terrorism.
“More importantly, we have been able to reignite the hope of Africans living abroad in coming back to their motherland to rebuild its walls”, said Oluwabukola.
DPA will also be launching its second annual campaign which will focus on the importance and benefits of paying tax and the need for government to invest tax payers’ money into programmes that can outlive each administration thereby creating systems that serve the society and the nation over generations.
As part of its activities for its New Year, which begins in May, Dream Project for Africa will host a press conference in Ikeja, Lagos.
The conference will be attended by media stakeholders and other leaders in the community that have partnered with DPA in the past year.
DPA will also hold an international twiference (twitter conference) using the hashtag #jointhethinking on Friday, May 13, 2016. Issues such as the future of African leaders and the economic and social disasters caused by corruption will surface at the conference.
In addition, DPA will hold a rally of change in Abuja in May and pay visits to political and civilian leaders with whom they can exchange ideas on the way forward for the nation.
