Abuja, Nigeria – Center for Peace Advocacy and Sustainable Development (CEPASD) and African Transformer Institute has announced the change of name of the Abuja Model African Union (AMAU) to the Youth Model African Union (YOMAN)
According to a statement issued by the Executive Director of the union, Mr. Igweshi Augustine, “this change of name is consequent upon consultation and feedback from CEPASD’s partners, sponsors and delegates. It is also to reflect the Pan African reach of the Model African Union which has evolved beyond being hosted in Abuja Nigeria to being poised to be hosted in different African countries annually.
The Youth Model African Union is the simulation of the proceedings, plenaries, extraordinary sessions and committee meetings of the Assembly of African Union.
The model African Union also aims to expose participants to the system and workings of the African Union as well as enable them gain diplomatic, leadership, lobbying and international relations experience to position themselves on a career as diplomats and transformational leaders for the African We Want.
To achieve the above, the Center for Peace Advocacy and Sustainable Development has executed strategic partnerships to heighten the impact and participant experience of this year’s Model African Union. We therefore wish to announce our partnership with the Pan African Young Diplomats Forum for the convening of this year’s Model African Union.
The aims and objectives of the Model African Union remain unchanged while we commit to continually set the pace as the Best Model African Union in the continent. Our newly executed partnership with the Pan African Young Diplomatic Forum is a milestone in organizing the 2022 edition.”
The organisation looks forward to making some necessary adjustments to suit the new direction. “To this effect, there will be a few amendments to the logo of the model to reflect the highlighted changes. We assure prospective delegates for the 2022 edition of our commitment to ensuring maximum engagement and networking experience.” the statement read.
Abuja Model African Union (AMAU) is a platform that brings together African youths to role-play or simulate the African Union while representing the country’s position on specific issue with constructive debate and inspiring contributions as expected of a diplomat or as a Head of State.
