YESA Campaign

Young Entrepreneurs Summit Africa (YESA) celebrated the International Youth Week while campaigning against the Use of illicit Drugs and Substances amongst Youths in Nigeria.

To champion this cause we have partnered with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Nigeria and we are organizing a Nationwide sensitization of youths and students starting from Abuja on the 27th to 30th of September.

Drug Abuse is highly responsible for the insecurity that has crippled the prosperity of Nigeria’s economy and has killed the dreams of many youths, therefore we need support from Government bodies, National and International Organizations, NGOs and even Private Individuals to support this laudable cause.
