Anaedo Online Lecture

The Anaedo Online Anniversary lecture was instituted by Fresh Minds Communications Ltd, the parent company of Anaedoonline, chaired by Cornel Osigwe who was recently listed among the top 10 under 40 CEOs in Nigeria, by Vanguard. The lecture was set up for the purpose of looking at some of the core and major problematic issues of public concern with a view to finding practical solutions that can be applied and can work. In finding solutions, there is clearly the need for synergy among the various units and segments of the Nigerian society in an attempt to build a better and formidable system of opportunities for all Nigerians.

The lecture is focused on finding solutions to the many problems of Nigeria. The organizers pay particular attention to the people invited to speak and this year is not an exception. His Excellency, Peter Obi is a former Governor of Anambra State and a strong political leader. He is someone many young people look up to and want to listen to. Prof. Wole Soyinka is a literary genius that has influenced thousands of young people with his work. He is also an advocate for good governance as well.

Prof. Kingsley Moghalu is a political economist and a highly cerebral figure who has great ideas on how Nigeria can make progress. Chief Innocent Chukwuma of Innoson Group is an outstanding entrepreneur, a man of immense economic dexterity. Maria Ude has a strong social media influence and is a notable figure in New Media. She was also a member of Ebonyi State House of Assembly. Nonso Okafor is a rising figure in Anambra politics and a member of the Anambra State House of Assembly.

Nigerians will definitely want to learn from those who have gone ahead and also be inspired by young people who have been there and done that.

The lecture will be recorded and the replay available for those who missed it.
