Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State will, on February 25, lead other speakers to discuss the future of Nigeria at the third annual lecture of Freedom Online in Lagos.
A statement by the Managing Director/Editor-in-Chief of the online newspaper, Gabriel Akinadewo, says the theme of the lecture is: “Nigeria: Foundation, Fundamentals, Future,” and Sanwo-Olu is the Guest Speaker.
Venue is Sheraton Lagos Hotel, Ikeja.
Other dignitaries expected at the event include Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi (Chairman); former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel (Special Guest of Honour); former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George (Keynote Speaker); and Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu (Guest of Honour).
Others are former Police Affairs Minister, Navy Captain Caleb Olubolade; Iba Gani Adams, Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland; Prof. Akinyemi Onigbinde, Senior Research Fellow, Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana, Accra; and Isah Mustapha, President, Nigerian Guild of Editors.
According to Akinadewo: “Nigeria’s political, economic and social fabric is disintegrating due to the foundation of the country and something urgent must be done. Insecurity does not recognise a Christian or Muslim, it has no respect for APC or PDP. The security situation now is precarious. We must do a proper x-ray of the foundation of our security, our economy, our politics for Nigeria’s future to be secured.”
