Today, I am so happy to announce that GREAT FUTOites – students and graduates of our great institution, Federal University of Technology Owerri (Nigeria) – have chosen me to deliver the Main Presentation in the highly prestigious FUTO Biennial Lecture. The lecture is scheduled on Oct 24, 2019 at the National Institute of International Affairs (NIIA), Lagos. I will speak on “The Pursuit of Exponential Development” for Nigeria.
Since 2006, The Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) Alumni Association, has been organizing this public lecture with the theme: “Nigeria’s quest for development – the technological fast tracking”. This year’s lecture is the 6th in series. The first edition held in 2006 on the topic “Power and Development in Nigeria: seeking that workable solution” was delivered by Prof. Bart Nnaji under the distinguished Chairmanship of Prof. Dora Akunyili of blessed memory.
I will return next week with a link for those that would like to attend [the organizers will share this weekend]. It is a free event but requires prior-registration.
