The People’s Senate, a new Nigerian youth organization, has concluded plans to host Nigeria’s first ever youth presidential debate on March 13, 2011 at the Sheraton Hotels and Towers in the Federal Capital city of Abuja. The Peoples’ Senate is an organization founded in the month of March 2010 with a view to mobilizing the Nigerian youth for mass participation and contribution towards building the nation of their collective dream.
The People’s Senate is positioned to be Nigeria’s authentic youth group focused on youth empowerment and keen participation in the socio-political space of the Nigerian nation. Established with a vision “to build a truly politically conscious and informed Nigeria where everyone is a guardian of our democracy, development and national identity”. The objective of The People’s Senate is to, amongst other things; build the largest movement of youths and women ever seen in the world under one umbrella to participate in politics and nation building, position the members of the Peoples’ Senate to influence the outcome of any election based on collective will and informed choices in the greater interest of the ordinary Nigerian, position a new set of competent, passionate and inspired youths and women for elective offices, position the Nigerian youth and women for global competitiveness, leadership and responsibility.
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, I gladly wish to inform you about the upcoming first Nigerian Youths Presidential Debate. The idea is to the bring the Youth leaders of the Presidential Campaign organizations of the different candidates to debate the issues that form their campaign. This event will hold on the 13th of March, 2011 at the Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.
The essence of the debate is to showcase the intelligence of the Nigerian youths as regards their understanding of the political and economic issues of Nigeria. This is imperative because TPS (The People's Senate) is an organization that prepares youths for positions of leadership and also at all times tries to show the nation the untapped jewel in the mind of an average Nigerian youth. A debate of this type is surely the first of its kind and it will probably be the closest to a Presidential debate ahead of the April presidential election. We believe every senator in TPS has a role to play in this event. Below is a brief of the event;
The Peoples Senate Presidential Screening Debate
I. Purpose: To let Nigerians understand the position of the youth in politics and nation building.
II. Invited Guests : Youth leaders of all the Presidential campaign organizations.
