Leonell Echa

Leonell Echa is a consultant with Neem Foundation, Abuja, on the UNICEF YRI Programme for the reintegration of children associated with armed forces and armed groups (CAAFAG) and other vulnerable children (OVC). He is also a consultant with the Center for Peace Advancement in Nigeria, Jos (CEPAN) on youth and community development. A good voice actor and an adept writer of short stories, radio scripts, articles and poetry (habits he picked up way before F.G.C Kiyawa), he thrives on a large pocket of sarcasm and good wit, that’s why sometimes he claps not because it is great, but because it is finished. He was educated at the University of Jos and the University of Ilorin, Nigeria, and those weren’t where he learnt that you can’t face the problem if the problem is your face.
