Renowned political economist, Professor Pat Okedinachi Utomi, will on August 25, 2022, feature on the 2nd Ikengaonline town hall meeting.
Utomi, who would be the guest speaker of the virtual town hall, will speak on ‘Handshake across the Niger: the Imperatives of Southern unity, now and beyond.’
A statement by the Editor-in-Chief, Ikengaonline, Uche Ugboajah, said that the event would be engaging and expository.
Ugboajah said that the August 25 event would be the second in the series of such meetings that would hold every last Thursday of the month.
He said that the town hall became necessary following the need to discuss various issues affecting the South-East in particular and Nigeria in general.
According to Ugboajah, Ikengaonline is a South-East-focused media platform, which aims to give voice to citizens of the zone, including those in parts of Rivers and Delta.
“The first town hall which held last month featured the immediate past Senate Minority Leader, Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe, who spoke on ‘The South-East and the 2023 General Elections: Participation in the midst of Insecurity.’
He urged those willing to join the event which would be moderated by Dr. Osmund Agbo and Dr Chido Onumah to do so through the link below.
Ikengaonline is a publication of Ikenga Media and Cultural Awareness Initiative (IMCAI), a non-profit entity that seeks to promote positive socio-cultural values, accountability and good governance through media and public education.
The publication is part of the Collaborative Media Engagement for Development Inclusivity and Accountability Project, a multi-level intervention for media independence and government accountability, managed by the Wole Soyinka Centre for Investigative Journalism (WSCIJ) and supported by MacArthur Foundation.
