This year, the Nigeria Higher Education Foundation (NHEF) is inserting itself in relevant conversations going on in Nigeria, and globally. Through the 3rd edition of the Annual Essay Competition, the NHEF is giving the Nigerian youth a voice and a platform to participate in these socially-relevant debates.
After much consideration, the NHEF is pleased to announce the following topics guaranteed to spur critical thinking and awakening in the participants. Our topics are themed around Gender, The Nigerian Economy, and Information Privacy:
“There is a problem with gender as it is today and we must do something to fix it.” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“The Nigerian economy is achieving projected diversification for growth and development.” Discuss
“The proliferation of online platforms is in constant tension with the right to privacy: one must give way for the other to thrive.”
All students enrolled in their penultimate year at any NHEF Partner University are qualified to participate in the essay contest.
* NHEF Partner Universities include Ahmadu Bello University, Bayero University, University of Ibadan, University of Nigeria, Nsukka and the University of Port Harcourt.
