The NYD National Director, Amb. Uchechukwu Ekpere Paul who made this disclosure in an interview with this medium today, said that NYD has partnered with Nigerians in Diaspora to ensure more efficiency of the programme, as many international observers will also be part of the debate. He also said this debate will help the Youths to Decide 2019 as it will not be business as usual and that this is not a media chat as we have seen over years that only few candidates are allowed to take part out of many presidential candidates.
The programme is supported by:
* Nigerian Youth Decide (NYD)*
* Diamond Youth Transformation Initiative (DYTI)*
* Christian Association (CAN) Youth wing (YOWICAN)*
* Islamic Association of Nigeria (Jama’atul Nasirul Islam(JNI)*
* Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN)*
* Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF)*
* Nigerians Diaspora Movement (NDM)*
* Confederation Of Nigerian Youth (CONY)*
* Life Saver Ambassador (LSA)*
* New Dynamic Youth Compatriots for Good Value System*

Long live Nigeria Youth Decide (NYD)!
Long live Nigerian Youths!
Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria!
