The NESG Bridge Fellowship was initiated in the year 2019 by the Board of Directors to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Nigerian Economic Summit (NES#25).
The NESG, in collaboration with LEAP Africa, launched the NESG Bridge Fellowship, with the goal to equip a new cadre of young visionary leaders with leadership, research and policy advocacy skills to contribute to policy reform in Nigeria.
During the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the pioneer NESG Bridge Fellows carried out a survey of the assessment of the impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on the economic, social, health, educational, and psychological wellbeing of members of households in Nigeria.
An assessment of the impact of the pandemic as well as the attendant lockdown measures imposed during the first wave of the outbreak has shown that government needs to embark on deep reforms in key sectors of the economy, particularly in health and education.
