A Senior Advocate of Nigeria and the managing partner, Alliance Law Firm, Lagos, Uche Val Obi has said that the 2022 edition of his firm’s yearly lecture will focus on “Developing Nigeria Through Philanthropy.”

The SAN said the event would also be unique in the sense that it coincides with the firm’s 20th anniversary and other celebrations.

“Our esteemed guest speaker is the Chairman & GMD Nestoil Group, Neconde Energy Limited, and Obijackson Foundation, Dr. Ernest Azudialu-Obiejesi.

“The event will be chaired by the Chairman of Julius Berger Plc and former Country Chair & MD, Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), Mr. Mutui Sunmonu,” he stated.

According to the lawyer, several top dignitaries and policy makers, including captains of industry, heads of parastatals, senior lawyers and other stakeholders are expected at the event, which will be held in Victoria Island, October 8, 2022.

The yearly lecture series is a Corporate Social Responsibility programme of the firm designed to share knowledge on topical issues that align with nation building, in a conducive and networking gathering of business leaders, policy makers, professionals and other stakeholders.

The maiden edition, which held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Victoria Island in September 2018, was chaired by Prof. Pat Utomi, with Mr. Dotun Suleiman as lead speaker supported by other eminent panelists including Mr. Austin Avuru and Mr. Oscar Onyema. The theme was on “Corporate Governance.”

The 2019 edition themed “Leveraging Technology to Develop Nigeria” was chaired by Dr. Ernest Ndukwe, and had Sir. Leo Stan Ekeh as Guest Speaker, with Dr. Andrew Nervin, Mr. Patrick Akinwuntan, Mr. Mike Ogbalu III, and Ms. Lynda Ikeji as panelists.

Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic disruptions, the firm could not hold the event in 2020 and 2021 and instead organised international webinars on Virtual Legal Proceedings and Taxation.
