With effect from Monday, 9th April 2012, RISE NETWORKS takes over the BACK PAGE of one of Nigeria’s foremost Newspapers, THE GUARDIAN!

The concept is to have the YOUTH SPEAK section on the Back Page of THE GUARDIAN, 3 Columns Vertical- 14inch x 3 inches. This is approximately 1,500 words without photographs and 1,200 words with Photos.
The Youth Speak Column will be published on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays WEEKLY.
We would therefore welcome writers’ contributions by way of thought provoking, spot on, analytical opinion editorials on these specified days.

The YOUTHSPEAK Column is an initiative of THE GUARDIAN powered by RISE, as a substantial advocacy space open for all young Nigerians to share thoughts on burning issues of Youth interest covering a wide range of topics such as Governance, Media, Politics, Health, Entertainment, Business, Fashion, Youth. Empowerment, Education, Art, Pop culture etc.

As a strategic and germane platform for Young Nigerians to engage Leadership, engage Society, shift the needle on the impact of Youth Development and contribute to National Discourse on diverse issues especially those that are peculiar to Nigeria, please note that all articles must be concise, topical and non-defamatory!

Only articles that have NEVER BEEN PUBLISHED on any Blog site, website, online portal, newspaper, magazine or any other information sharing Medium will feature on this Column!!

**The soft copy version of the column’s articles will also be made available on our website and The Guardian’s after the day’s publication on the Newspaper!

All articles including preferred Pen name, phone number and email address should be sent to editorial@risenetworks.org with a theme tagline in capital letters right before the Title. E.g. GOVERNANCE; Subsidy Removal Debacle; Are we still sure about SURE? Or ENTERTAINMENT; the vast untapped potential of Nollywood and its adverse effect on Nigeria’s Economy!

  1. Hi I love the special article on THE GUARDIAN, “YOUTH SPEAK”.and am interested in it. I believe this articles will go along way to change the mind-set and attitude of many Nigerians. I am looking forward to send my articles also, “I believe in nigeria, i believe in transformation, I believe that change is possible. With God all things are possible. Bravo.


  2. ADVICE TO THE YOUTHS I advise the youths to be more purposeful. We are in election period when many things happen in the name of politics. How much do you love yourself & your nation? Wil you allow yourself to be used as instrument of destructn? Politicians are pursueing their political career nd you also have your own vision to pursue, or you dont have any, wil you allow them use you as instrument of destruction? Can’t they use their own children to do that, ok their children are special while you are tout,that they can give gin & litle cash to destroy others, dont you know that you are special before God for He created you in His own image (Gen 1 :26) You are honorable (Isaiah 43 :4) May be you have not known this; God has special purpose for your life and it is only you can fufil that purpose. Dont allow anybody take you as useless person and begin to use you to shed blood, b\c blood you shed today wil continue to speak against you from the ground.(Gen 4:10) You are God’s treasured possession (Deut 7:6)


    1. Thank you Gladys. We understand the angle you are coming from and its important the youths are engaged constructively. Check our front page for the latest post on the 2015 elections.
