The Convergence 1.0 Magazine

The Convergence 1.0 was the first of its kind. To drive pro-active participation and interstate collaboration in Nigeria, Yiaga Africa and the Not Too Young To Run Movement mobilized 400 youth candidates to converge in the Federal Capital Territory for a three-day event themed, The Convergence: Power, Capacity and Politics. The youth candidates who were empowered to run by the Not Too Young to Run Act driven by Yiaga Africa and the Not Too Young To Run Movement, were equipped with the required knowledge, skills and ideas to actualize their political ambitions.
