Nigeria Info organizes debate for teenagers

I Beg To Differ‘ Student Debate Tournament, hosted by Nigeria Info radio station, has begun its second round, which will take place in April.

The goal of the project is to contribute to the expansion of the industry via the promotion of developmental programs aimed at equipping Nigerian youngsters with the necessary skills to develop creative, long-term solutions.

The competition, which will be Nigeria’s first and only radio debate event for teenagers, will begin later this month, according to the organizers.

In Lagos State, it will provide secondary school students between the ages of 13 and 17 who are between the ages of 13 and 17 the opportunity to develop the psychological abilities necessary to engage in intellectually stimulating conversations about complex socio-economic and political issues that affect the nation’s corporate existence.

Serge Noujaim, Chief Executive Officer of Cool FM, Wazobia FM, and Nigeria Info, stated at the launch of the second edition of the competition that the competition aims to provide a platform for Nigerian youths to develop their public-speaking skills while also exercising their creativity through the English language. The competition is in its second edition.

“As a brand, we recognize the critical need of developing an enabling platform that enables Nigerian adolescents, particularly those in secondary schools, to improve their capacity to communicate effectively.”

As a result, we believe that the competition will assist a large number of Nigerian youths in developing their creativity while employing the English language. It will also provide a means of improving their abilities to hold constructive views on complex issues of national and global concern, he added.

According to Femi Obong-Daniels, the station’s General Manager of Corporate Affairs, which includes Cool FM, Wazobia FM, and Nigeria Info, the station is at the forefront of advocating numerous programs that strive to boost youth development across the country.

As part of Nigeria Info’s growing list of youth-led activities aimed at improving the developmental ability of Nigerian students, the tournament is being held in conjunction with the promotion of healthy discussion competitions.
