The 12th Bola Tinubu Colloquium will have Liberian President George Oppong Weah as speaker.
He will be speaking on the tenuous nature of rebuilding a country after brutal civil wars, emphasising the importance of national reconciliation and trust-building, for the forging of national cohesion and unity, as well as bringing a country back from the brink.
According to the organizing committee, other speakers at the event will include a professor, Dani Rodrik from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, and Mohamed Yahya of the United Nations Development Programme.
The committee maintained that, “Our objective is to explore the implications of violent conflicts and innovative strategies for sustaining peace in a heterogeneous society with multi-ethnic groups, such as Nigeria.
“The event will focus on peace-building and national cohesion as a tool for growth and prosperity in Nigeria. The theme interrogates these issues in the light of contemporary incidents and commentaries in the public space with ethnic and religious dimensions”.
The event will hold virtually and kicks off by 12 noon on Monday 29th March 2021. Interested participants can register at www.bit.ly/BolaTinubuColloquium.
