ICT specialist and philanthropist, Dr. Olakunle Churchill was recently awarded as the African Youth & Governance Champion by the Youth Group from different African countries under the umbrella of African Youth & Governance Conference (AYGC). The interactive event which attracted young and enterprising entrepreneurs across Africa and diaspora was held in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria.
Building on the themes and outcomes of previous African Youth and Governance Conferences held annually from 2009 to 2017, the 9th AYGC provided a platform for the young participants to interrogate critical continental and global issues of relevance to youth development in Africa under the conference broad theme: “Harnessing Africa’s Demographic Dividend through Investments in Youth”. The conference which connects to about 35 African countries had a creative art work of Dr. Olakunle Churchill drawn instantly by one of the youth participants
The high point of the conference which extended to a second session at night was the iconic award presentation to the Chairman of Big Church Group for Entrepreneurship, Agriculture and ICT.
