UNPACKING THE NIGERIAN CRISIS
FORMER NIGERIAN PRESIDENT H.E OLUSEGUN OBASANJO, BRITISH POLITICIAN LORD ALTON AND OTHER EXPERT SPEAKERS JOIN FORCES TO UNPACK THE CRISIS IN NIGERIA AND THE NEED FOR CHANGE
Government ministers, religious leaders, academics and many others will take the digital stage at the second annual conference from UK charity, the International Organisation for Peace building & Social Justice.
PSJ (International Organisation for Peacebuilding and Social Justice) UK is an organisation made up of mainly African diasporans living in the UK who are particularly keen on contributing positively to development, peace and security in their heritage countries. The organisation is currently focused on Nigeria and it’s UK diaspora, and this year more than ever PSUK are vehemently developing solutions to quicken the end of an era of instability and insecurity in Nigeria.
PSJUK CEO, Ayo Adedoyin, said: “Nigeria is often referred to as ‘The Giant of Africa’ – It is a unique country which has so much human and natural resources which have remained relatively dormant. Until it taps into the vast potential, capital and intellectual prowess and also unpacks and constructively resolves its security and development challenges, Nigeria will unfortunately remain ‘a sleeping giant’. Recent events point to indications that this giant nation is stirring up from slumber and a New Nigeria is about to emerge. This conference will be driving us in that direction.”
Responding to the global pandemic, this year’s PSJ UK conference will be entirely digital, broadcast on the 4th December in three-parts across the day. The programme consisting of keynote talks, seminars, interviews and panels will feature a wide range of distinguished expert speakers from around the world – including former president H.E Olusegun Obasanjo – to help unpack some of the issues facing Nigeria today.
Talks and panels throughout the day will touch on topics including religion, media, security, data and more. The conference will host a press conference and UK presentation of PSJ UK’s Silent Slaughter report, which explores the shocking fact that in Nigeria, almost 100,000 people have been brutally killed since 2001 by radicalized militants.
