My policy idea: My policy idea relates to key issues for implementing the national financial inclusion strategy for Nigeria. 

Why I came to the Leadership Program: To be able to build my capacity for implementing the national financial inclusion strategy for a wide category of stakeholders. 

What I have learned that has been very helpful: We learned how to write reports to persuade your audience, through the use of stories and metaphors to make your proposal powerful and acceptable to your audience. 

On the program's uniqueness: The program is structured in the sense that you go from theory to practice to case studies, which has gone a long way to help us. It's practical and creates an opportunity for you to network with your colleagues from other countries.
