ABOUT US

67Million Initiative is a coalition of Nigerians with the mandate to galvanize active youth participation in politics and leadership in Nigeria. 67 Million is our estimated statistics of the number of youth between 18-45 currently in Nigeria; this is a reminder of how large (and influential) we are, and also represents the motive of this initiative – to create a voice for the 67 million united youth that are not divided by religion, political party, tribe or gender.

Our Vision

To advance Nigeria with a new generation of leaders at all levels of government

Our Mission

To build/organise and leverage on the block vote for the interest of the youth

WHY WE WERE FORMED

Nigeria’s development relies on the people with the ability to do something about it stepping forward, instead of doing nothing and complaining of the people who did step forward. It is our citizen duty to actively participate in advancing Nigeria, this platform is created to support youth that want to participate in government and politics, and support policies and projects aligned with this goal.

To make this happen, we first call for an alliance of youth, technocrats, politicians and religious leaders, irrespective of political affiliations, tribe or religion to protect the interest of the collective youth, and support the next generation to assume leadership positions in the country. If we do not unite and insist on the next generation, we will continue to be used and then ignored.

WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

Young Nigerians actively participated in the political process leading to the 2015 general elections with no clear-cut roadmap to harness the strength of our numbers in advancing and protecting our interests in government. 67Million is an umbrella for youth from the private and public sector, and from all political parties, religious faith and geopolitical regions with the mandate to create a shift in dynamics by ensuring the youth are influential in politics and reap benefits from its democratic dividends.

Major decisions will be decided through a democratic process where all delegates will participate. The Trustees are youth leaders from the public and private sector with a responsibility to protect the integrity and foundation of the initiative. Their role is not to make decisions for the youth but to protect the interest of the collective youth. A management team will be formed from the delegates and they will be responsible for the operations and advancement of 67million Initiative agenda.
