Distinguished Governance Lecture to Hold on Monday, August 14 at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye

Distinguished Governance Lecture of the Oba (Dr.) Kayode Sikiru Adetona Professorial Chair of Governance will hold as scheduled on Monday, 14th of August 2017 at the OGD Hall, Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye.

Slated for 11am, the lecture will be dedelivered by Prof. Banji Oyeyinka, who until last year was the Regional Director for Africa, UN Habitat. Oyeyinka, a professorial fellow at the United Nations University, Mastricht, Netherlands and the Open University, United Kingdom, will speak to the topic 'From Consumption to Production: A Roadmap for Getting Nigeria out of Economic Recession'. The lecture is expected to draw a wide circle of scholars, policy makers and politicians across divides, and is billed to generate innovative ideas and fresh insights that will assist the search for economic redemption. It will be chaired by a distinguished former Senator, Dr Olorunnimbe Mamora, while Dr Tokunbo Awolowo Dosunmu, Executive Director of the Obafemi Awolowo Foundation will serve as Special Guest of Honour.

Oyeyinka graduated with a first class degree from the Obafemi Awolowo University and thereafter took postgraduate degrees in Policy Science from the University of Toronto Canada and the University of Sussex, England. A Professor of Development Studies and Innovation, Oyeyinka has served in various capacities at the United Nations for over two decades.
The Governance Lecture will bring together town and gown and will situate Nigeria's economic and political travails within global discourse on Sustainable Development, with a view to generating key ideas for regenerating an economy in trough and throes of recession.

The Governance Lecture constitutes a high point of the core mandate of the Professorial Chair, which seeks to influence national development by throwing up topical ideas and alternative view points that will move the country beyond the groove of arrested development and a lagard governance culture.

The general public is hereby invited.
