NHEF Scholarship Essay Competition – Win Big In The NHEF Scholarship Essay Competition 2023

The Nigeria Higher Education Foundation (NHEF) has announced its 7th Annual Scholarship Essay Competition, which encourages critical thinking among university students on topical socio-economic issues relevant to Nigeria’s sustainable growth and development.

Nigeria Higher Education Foundation (NHEF) Scholarship Essay Competition

Given the nation’s current financial and economic situation, the competition this year focuses on “The CBN Naira redesign policy and its effect on the Nigerian economy & the consequence of increased brain drain on the economy.”

NHEF Scholarship Essay Competition Theme And Topics

The 2023 NHEF Essay Competition focuses on “The CBN Naira redesign policy and its effect on the Nigerian economy & the consequence of increased brain drain on the economy”. Participants can choose between the two essay topics:

1. Leading to the recent currency redesign policy, the Central Bank of Nigeria reported that about 84.71% of the N3.23 trillion currency in circulation was outside the banking system.

A situation described to be a risk to its currency management responsibility. Using relevant examples, critically analyze the pros & cons of the monetary policy implementation and provide recommendations to the CBN for future policy implementation based on the consequent challenges experienced nationwide.

2. Article 13, section 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states, “Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country”. This statement agrees with the Nigerian constitution on the Right to Freedom of Movement.

However, a significant increase in brain drain can be classified as an anomaly for any economy. Critically analyze the factors causing human capital flight in Nigeria and recommend relevant solutions to safeguard the country’s economic growth and development.
