Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Osita Chidoka, OFR, NPOM, has been invited as the lead speaker at the Youth Development Centre, an arm of Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library [OOPL].
The Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library through its youth arm, ‘The Youth Development Centre’ has mandated itself to preserve the past, capture the present and inspire the future.
In pursuit of this, it designed a youth-adult learning platform for young people by engaging the experiences of older and past political office holders on how to effectively engage the governance process.
Chief Chidoka is expected to deliver a paper titled “Towards a Guiding Political Philosophy for a Democratic Nigeria”.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the media assistant to Chief Chidoka, Mr. Ikechukwu Okafor.
The conference will be chaired by His Excellency, Alhaji Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, the Executive Governor of Sokoto State.
Alhaji Tambuwal’s opening statement will feature “Preparing Successor Generation For Effective Participation in Governance”.
According to OOPL, “one of the major challenges confronting participatory democracy in this period is the absence of well-articulated philosophy and ideas that can serve as a rallying point for mobilization framework, particularly for successor generation of Nigerians”.
The conference is billed to hold on 28th May by 11a.m. at the Conference Hall, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
