About IBN Conference

I Believe Nigeria (IBN) conference is a one day annual business & leadership conference that engages over 5000 young people in Nigeria, and help them to interact with seasoned professional. Its content is crafted to reflect core foundational values necessary for character development, service and nation building.

IBN provides a bridge to educate and inspire individuals with a spark to take control of their lives and take on positions of responsibility for their futures. It offers learning that can help people acquire skills required to free themselves from existing cultural patterns and social structures that stifle innovation and undermine their capacity to achieve self- realization and livelihood.

IBN Further provides platform for connection with super minds and opportunity to lend you voice on conversations of local and global concerns.


The goals of nation building cannot be reached unless young people are adequately equipped to contribute to the country’s growth. The Nigerian narrative reveals that youths are not yet at the forefront of domestic development. While many like to attribute this menace to her socio-political landscape, at DAYPEF we believe that there is an inherent knowledge gap between what the school offers and what the market requires from school leavers. IBN’16 focuses on helping participants to identify their key role in shaping the economy and spurring them to creatively take leadership.
