Protégé Leadership Programme (PLP)

Nigerian Youth

n order to groom and raise a replacement generation of leaders with the right values, mindsets and character, the Nigerian Prize for Leadership will run a protégé leadership programme, targeted at young persons between ages 18-30 years old.

An appropriate selection process will be deployed to determine successful entries that will qualify for the programme by a leadership faculty to be led by the winner of the Nigerian Prize For Leadership, each season. Other leadership mentoring programmes will be organised periodically.

International Leadership Clinic and Exhibition


here will be an Annual Leadership Clinic and Exhibition preceding the Nigerian Leadership Prize presentation each season.

This is intended to be a forum that brings together outstanding leaders from within and outside Nigeria, to showcase and share their ideas and thoughts on leadership with young people, covering trends, principles and applications. While each Clinic will incorporate different perspectives on human development, organizational performance, nation building, with leadership and culture, aimed at creating new leadership paradigm for the Nigerian ‘replacement generation’; the exhibition on the other hand provides for a marketplace of new thinking and innovative leadership solutions across different layers of society. Individuals and organisations will be invited to exhibit their unique leadership skills and concepts as a means of promoting successful and innovative hands-on leadership models in Nigeria.

The Clinic will also feature a review of leadership achievements and activities of the Prize Winner for the outgoing season. The protégé attached to the Prize Winner will have the opportunity to present a leadership project embarked upon during the season.
