Island Club Holds Quarterly Lecture Today


The Island Club, Lagos will hold its third public interest lecture today, June 15 at 1p.m in the club’s premises.

The topic for this quarter is: ‘The Second Buhari Administration: One Year After, the Economy and the Polity.’

The Editor-in-Chief of The Guardian Group of Newspapers, Mr. Debo Adesina, is the guest speaker.

The public interest lecture series is a major plank in the current efforts by the new leadership under Mr. Oladipo Okpeseyi (SAN) to reinvent the Island Club in line with the vision of its founding fathers as a respected force for nurturing the conduct of public affairs by providing a platform to influence the direction of public life and public policies.

The first of these lectures was held in September 2015. The theme was ‘Nigeria’s war on terror’ and the guest speaker was Major General Adewunmi Ajibade (rtd). Professor Itse Sagay, law scholar and Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Council Against Corruption delivered the second lecture with the theme ‘Confronting the corruption scourge’ in March 2016.
Also at the event, Mr. Bismack Rewane, a finance expert, will examine the state of the economy.
