Prof. Eghosa Osaghae.
Chairman of the Foundation, Osaren Emokpae, while addressing journalists ahead of the lecture, said the organisers of the event deemed it fit to kick-off the 15th yearly lecture with the motive to address issues of concern, such as the problem of poverty and insecurity affecting the growth of the country.
He cited poverty as one major problem fuelling the insecurity ravaging the country, saying: “As long as poverty is still on the land, terrorism will continue to be on the increase.”
