University of Ibadan | Ibadan, Nigeria | Advancing SDG 5 & UNAI 3
" I am excited to become a Millennium Fellow because I will be empowered by access to world class trainings, connections, collaborative action, guidance and support from this fellowship which are required to bring SDGs and UNAI principles to a reality in my community. I do what I do because I believe that if everyone had access to at least high school education, then everyone will be equipped to contribute maximally to providing solutions to our numerous economic, social and political problems of my country. This will also reduce crime rate and promote peace and security in my country. "
