The lecture would be chaired by former Minister of Foreign Affairs and Former Permanent Representative of Nigeria at the United Nations, Prof. Joy Ogwu.

Lumumba is expected to bring his anti-corruption crusade experience to bear on issues stemming from corruption that are holding down growth in Africa.
