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.
The venue is Sheraton Lagos Hotel, Ikeja.
Other dignitaries expected at the event include Rotimi Amaechi, chairman, minister of transportation, Gbenga Daniel, former Ogun State Governor, Special Guest of Honour);
Olabode George, former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chief Keynote Speaker, and Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on Media and Publicity, guest of Honour.

former police affairs minister; 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, NGE.
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”.
