Disturbed by the recent spate of bombings in the country, eminent political leaders, frontline activists, accomplished intellectuals and business icons and concerned segments of the Nigerian populace under the aegis of Project Nigeria will converge at the Lagos Airport Hotel, Ikeja on Saturday April 14, to discuss the future of Nigeria.


The conveners, while condemning the latest bombings of poor innocent Nigerians in different parts of the northern states in the last one week, stressed in a statement signed by Oluwabori Obafemi their media consultant, that the gathering would take the shape of a National Colloquium and public presentation of “Time to Reclaim Nigeria” a compendium of proposals on Nigeria’s current national question written by Chido Onumah, a journalist and human rights activist


According to the statement, notable personalities, who are billed to play special roles at the presentation include Muhammadu Buhari, National Leader and Presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC; Bola Tinubu, National Leader, Action Congress of Nigeria ACN; and Sule Lamido, the governor of Jigawa State; as well as David Dafinone Accounting legend and former Senator among others

“Speakers at the colloquium include Ben Nwabueze, Yusuf Maitama Sule, Emeka Anyaoku, Lateef Adegbite, Balarabe Musa, Pat Utomi, Akin Oyebode, Itse Sagay, Olisa Agbakoba,Femi Falana, Fola Adeola, Tunde Bakare, Odia Ofeimun and  Kayode Fayemi, Governor of Ekiti State, amongst others,”the statement said.


It also added that “The special book presentation and colloquium of all pro national conference advocates and stakeholders, which is billed to commence at 10am prompt will also afford Project Nigeria the auspices to circulate “The Save Nigeria Project” handbook edited by Ben Nwabueze, A professor of Law and eminent jurist ” “Ayo Obe, a prominent lawyer, writer, and activist, will review the book, Time to Reclaim Nigeria, while Babatunde Fashola, governor of Lagos State and his counterpart from Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, will jointly host the historic gathering which will be jointly chaired Elder statesman, Tunji Braithwaite and  Junaid Mohammed, a veteran northern politician”


The conveners say the event is billed as a platform for national action on the endemic security and constitutional challenges confronting Nigeria and they hope this event will spearhead the much talked-about modality for the proposed peoples’ national conference on the future of Nigeria as the country, they affirm, needs a national consensus now more than any other time in its history.

    I really dont why Tinubu is part of this great forum, but am still optimistic this forum can bring up a positive change to Nigeria if they are really serious

  • Allpower4gospel

    i thank god and the conveners of this great meting but i do not like the person of sule lamido,he is a pdp agent,any body pdp must not be part of it if there will be anything positive from it,they pdp is our greatest problem not boko haram.

    if the opposition are serious they can take power from this evil party called pdp,in any good democracy power move from party to party,i have live here in ghana for about 5 years,i witness opposition ndc won election from npp after 8 years.

    let our opposition leaders be sincere and selfless by allowing the best among them to face pdp come 2015,we are tired of pdp/boko haram,am proposing a true merger of acn and cpc/apga,is either buhari and tinudu or buhari and rochas,this opposition will be ok to take power for us come 2015.

    my ogas our problem is not the constitution but the operators of it,they pdp violate it as they want even their own laws are not obeyed,

    i wish you good success,

    With all the names mentioned so far have concluded in my mind that its a political forum and not the initial idea behind it, gov of Ondo state and some Northern pdp govs too should be invited so they can both learn from each other.
