All is set for the inaugural webinar series of the Nigerian Leadership Initiative (NLI), an international, non-partisan organization registered in Nigeria and the UK.
The event is themed: Rebuilding Our National Values System. It will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 11am.
Currently, NLI has about 400 highly accomplished members in its network, including former and serving members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), CEOs of MDAs and private corporations, in and outside Nigeria.
A press statement signed by the Chairman, Organizing Committee, Bashir Ibrahim Yusuf and the NLI founder, Olusegun Aganga, explained that the webinar would, among others, reference Nigeria’s history and examine its current situation.
‘‘We will reference our history, enunciate and understand the values we had as Nigerians (during a nostalgic period commonly referred to as our “golden era”), examine our current situation (by identifying when our values system derailed, allowing us to understand how and why we got here), and discuss key steps required to rebuild the national values system.
“A significant objective of the webinar is to galvanize and energize citizens and policy makers, at all levels, to take a collective action regarding the development of a national values system; which will culminate into the proposition of a Bill to the National Assembly, policy formulation, and the development of an implementation
plan that is also linked to our system for reward and national honours.”
The Special Guest of Honour is Gen. Yakubu Gowon, while the vice-president Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, would deliver the keynote address.
Invited speakers and panelists include: Dr. Ahmad Lawan CON, President of the Senate, Dr. Christopher Kolade CON (and NLI Patron), Mr. Olusegun O. Aganga CON, Prof. Wale Adebanwi, Dr. Joe Abah, Mrs. Ibukun Awosika, Mr. John Momoh, Mallam Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim, and Prof. Tunji Olaopa.
