Nigeria In One Minute

15-year-old pupil wins slot to speak in UK

A fifteen-year-old girl Nyankaniya Garleya, has emerged the winner of African Young Orators (AYO), a public speaking competition organised by Peat Philip’s Foundation (PPF).

Garleya, a Senior School 1 (SSI) pupil of Princess Adeja International College, Gboko, Benue State, beat 13 contestants from five states in the second edition of AYO, which theme was: Nature is a common language.

She will represent Nigeria at the world finals of the International Public Speaking Competition (IPSC), in May, this year.

The Taraba State indigene said she was excited that she did not let her school and family down.

Garleya said she prepared by reading hard for the competition and went for coaching.
