Some high-profile personalities attended the fourth Nigerian Leadership Colloquium on Tuesday in celebration of Pastor Ituah Ighodalo’s 63rd birthday.

The colloquium held at Trinity House in Lagos was themed ‘Mistakes Nigeria Made’.

Chairman of the occasion was the former minister of foreign affairs Gen Ike Nwachukwu (retd).

Founder of Anap Foundation Atedo Peterside gave the keynote speech while the discussants were Arise TV anchor, Reuben Abati; and former commissioner of environment in Osun State, Prof Bukola Oyawoye.

“If we fail to learn from the mistakes of the past, there is a tendency that we are bound to repeat them,” said Peterside.

Tithes, first fruits are for church leaders — Pastor Ituah Ighodalo

“The coup of January 1966 happened just because politicians failed to curb the excesses of their supporters. As political leaders and supporters, we all have a role to play in our nation-building and for peace to reign.”

Oyawoye said that for Nigeria to become better and greater, it is up to followers and leaders to do and live right.

“It is not enough to just blame our leaders, as a follower, also resist the urge to dump refuse in the gutters to avoid flooding people’s homes when the drainage is blocked,” she said.

Abati, on his part, said: “For this nation to move forward, we have to renegotiate the basis of our union so that everyone can feel a sense of belonging.”
