The Executive Director of the organization, Abdulkareem Abdullateef made this known during the induction ceremony in Ilorin, Kwara state.

He said “The program Is a non-governmental one and the CEPP training is a day training aimed to inform the youth about their constitutional right in engaging with their elected representative.

“It equips them with the substantial knowledge needed in the area of political participation, accountability of process, tracking of public funds utilization and how the youths can actively engage in political advocacy that will drive and promote leadership accountability.

“We have started this already and we look forward to doing more in the coming days,” he said.
