Oby Ezekwesili to keynote Realnews 5th lecture

The former World Bank Vice President and past Nigerian minister of education, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, has been confirmed to deliver the keynote address at the Fifth Anniversary Lecture of Realnews Magazine, reports ITRealms.

The lecture, ITRealms gathered, has been scheduled to hold on Thursday, November 16, 2017, at the Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, by 10 am.

Publisher of Realnews Magazine Online, Maureen Chigbo, confirmed this to ITRealms, saying that Ezekwesili, who is the co-founder of Transparency International, will speak on “African Leadership in a Turbulent Era”. 

She will be delivering the lecture barely a month after the Sweden-based International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) appointed her along with Kofi Annan, former United Nations secretary general among others  as  an Ambassador to champion the study on Global State of Democracy. 

Chigbo stressed that Ezekwesili will be the first female to give the Realnews Anniversary Lecture series which was established to celebrate the best minds in our society and tap into their repository of knowledge to enrich the discourse on national and international development. 

Realnews past anniversary lecturers included Dr. Ibn Mohamed Chambers, United Nations Secretary General’s special representative to West African and Sahel (2016); Professor Chukwuma Soludo, former governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, (2015) and Professor Maurice Iwu, former chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, (2014).


Chigbo said that the lecture will bring together many policy and decision makers from the private and public sectors as well as non-governmental organizations and the media.
