GenVoices got the much needed UN endorsement.. way to go!

History was made today as a group of Nigerian youths through the convener of GenVoices,  Kola Oyeneyin gathered to discuss change issues in the country. To achieve this, a telethon hosted on the Channels TV which was also streamed online took place today from 10am-1pm GMT. The point is to convene Nigerian youths all over the world on and offline to collectively lend their voices to the process of building a better Nigeria.

The telethon which was broadcast to over 10 million Nigerians, is the first time in a long while that the youths are speaking up against challenges and corruption issues in the country. 

TV Presenter Eku Edewor (R) tweeted a photo of herself with  Omawumi and Toke Makinwa at the ChannelsTV green room  today.
The telethon was supported by public personalities  from all sectors: Omawumi Megbele, Mo Abudu, Omotola Jalade, Toke Makinwa, Mia Atafo, Timi Dakolo and many more,! SEE MORE PHOTOS
