Wole Soyinka centre to hold lecture on Nigeria

The Wole Soyinka Centre for Investigative Journalism (WSCIJ) will hold its media lecture series themed ‘Media and civil liberties when the clouds of fear gather’ on Friday July 13, 2012, at the NECA Building Ikeja, Lagos by 10:00am.

A statement from the centre’s coordinator, Motunrayo Alaka, said the theme for this year’s lecture was “carefully chosen to bring the critical issue of insecurity in the country today to the fore; especially the difficulty the media encounters in the face of the resultant climate of terror unleashed by terrorists’ incessant attacks on the nation”.

Mohammed Haruna, the Executive Director of Tawada Media Limited and a respected political analyst, is the key speaker at the event. Other participants include: Gbenga Adefaye, the President of Nigerian Guild of Editors; Shehu Sani the President of Civil Rights Congress; John Momoh, the CEO of Channels Television; Lai Oso, Dean, School of communications, Lagos State University (LASU) and representatives of Nigerian security agencies.
