Other dignitaries expected at the event include Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi (chairman of the occasion); former Ogun State Governor, Gbenga Daniel (special guest of honour); former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George (keynote speaker) and Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu (guest of honour).

“Nigeria’s political, economic and social fabric is disintegrating due to the foundation of the country and something urgent must be done,” Managing Director/Editor-in-Chief of the online newspaper, Gabriel Akinadewo, said in a statement on Sunday.

“Insecurity does not recognise a Christian or Muslim, it has no respect for APC or PDP. The security situation now is precarious. We must do a proper x-ray of the foundation of our security, our economy, our politics for Nigeria’s future to be secured.”
