The gathering will analyse the issues and challenges of governance in Nigeria, Sikiru Kayode Adetona, the Awujale (king) of Ijebu Kingdom, said in a statement reaching Xinhua in Lagos, Nigeria’s economic hub on Saturday.
Former president Olusegun Obasanjo and former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, would lead other elite panel of discussants at the inaugural lecture slated for March 10, he said.
This is to commence a revolution in the education sector that has the potential of changing society, Adetona said after announcing a 250 million naira (1.2.million U.S. dollars) endowment of a professorial chair at the Olabisi Onabanjo University in southwest Ogun State.
Adetona said he wants to see Nigeria take giant strides in the area of good governance stemming from quality education, research, mentor-ship and community engagement.
According to him, education has a pivotal role to play in the quality of governance, noting that he has chosen to support domestication of good governance with the endowment of a professorial chair in governance at the University. Enditem
