A press statement from the organizers states: “We  must say it is indeed a great privilege to be involved in this project. We are organising a symposium in honour of General Dr Yakubu Gowon, who obtained his Doctorate degree in Political science at the University of Warwick (1984), incidentally 40 years ago. General Gowon was not just the youngest head of state Nigeria has ever had, he was a prominent leader and played a key role in Nigeria’s history.

“Recognising his PhD heritage at the University of Warwick, this one-day symposium is aimed to engage Nigerian students to discuss and share opinions about our vision for our beloved country. This is to get perspectives from our speakers on what a Nigerian reformation would look like and what it promises for the state of our economy, happiness, and social existence.

“It would also offer a great networking opportunity to bring African students together, to promote dialogue, support and promote friendship. We hope this would inspire new generation of leaders from all spheres and ignite our patriotism
