ICOC Men’s Forum Holds on Saturday
Lagos, Nigeria: The Ikeja-Ketu region’s Men’s Forum and Seminar 2016 organized to deliberate on the important issue of integrity holds this Saturday, May 28, 2016 at the Mission House, No. 1 Jobi Fele way, Alausa Ikeja, Lagos.
The event themed “Against the Tides: Integrity in All Things is Possible” is targeted at professionals, businessmen, government official and the discerning public. The key goal of the Seminar is draw people’s attention to the need to cultivate integrity as a virtue of life. It is also to make them realize that as hard as it may seem to be integral in life, it is possible.
According to the Chairman of the Forum, Mr Uwamai Igein, Nigerians have grown lethargic to the fundamental issue of integrity, and this has reflected in and affected our lives in every way including professional practice, personal relationships and governance. As a group, we considered it appropriate to speak to Nigerians on the need to be honest in dealing with one another and in every aspect of our professional endeavor.
Emeka Okechukwu, an Evangelist and a member of the team said that, “some people think it is impossible to show integrity in Nigeria; this is why we say that against the tide of doubt, integrity in all things is very possible. We will like people to attend this event and learn for themselves how this can be made possible for the good of all and to the glory of God”
The Group has assembled a theme of credible young Nigerian professionals to discuss the topic designed in three parts: Integrity in the public sector, integrity in the private sector and integrity in social and spiritual life.
Mr. Olusegun Odubela, former Ogun State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology will speak on integrity in the public sector. Mr. Ken Aghoghovbia, Deputy Managing Director/COO African Re-Insurance will speak on business or private sector, while Mr. Emmanuel Emeh, an Evangelist will speak on integrity in social and spiritual life.
These papers will be discussed in details by a team of panelists consisting of enlightened young professionals in various fields including, Mr. Emeka Anolefo, a lawyer; Mr. James Agama, a pastor and a marketing and brand strategist, Mr. Osa Director, a lawyer, journalist and human rights activist, Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), actor and former Commissioner in Delta State, Lanre Ogunbanjo, CEO of a private company and others.
As part of the activities heralding the seminar, the group donated laptops and printer to Alausa Police Station to kick start its CSR initiative in the community.
