Nigeria’s future under question, as Sanwo-Olu, Shehu, Amaechi, George, others set to x-ray nation’s woes
Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu will on Tuesday, February 25th join other speakers to discuss the future of Nigeria at the third annual lecture of Freedom Online in Lagos.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports the theme of the lecture, which is billed to hold at Sheraton Lagos Hotel, Ikeja, is ‘Nigeria: Foundation, Fundamentals, Future’, with Sanwo-Olu as the Guest Speaker.
In a statement, Gabriel Akinadewo, Managing Director/Editor-in-Chief of the online newspaper said the theme of the lecture is premised on the need to do a proper x-ray of the foundation of the security, the economy, and the politics of the nation.
He said the political, economic and social fabric of the nation was disintegrating due to the foundation of the country and something urgent must be done if the future must be secured.
“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,” he said.

Rotimi Amaechi (Chairman); former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel (Special Guest of Honour); former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, Chief Olabode George (Keynote Speaker), and Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu (Guest of Honour).
