We believe that the change that we seek in our nation cannot be realised without citizens committing to personal transformation and value re-orientation. The realisation of a New Nigeria is hinged on our commitment to values-based lifestyle.
It is in response to this that the second edition of Faith and Governance is themed:
Personal Transformation: An Imperative for National Rebirth.
The Keynote address was delivered by Dr. Sam Amadi, the former Chairman/CEO, Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission, who is presently an Associate Professor at Baze University, and Coordinator, Abuja School of Social and Political Thoughts.
It also featured a panel session with Prof. Victor Dugga, the Dean, Faculty of Arts, Federal University Lafia, Nasarawa State. Prof Dugga is also the Chairman, Board of Trustees of Finishers Initiative for Social Transformation.
The other member of the panel was Mr Soji Adeniyi. Mr Adeniyi, a social commentator and development expert is the founder, Primetrainers Africa and Former Chairman, United Nations Joint Staff Pensions Fund.
In his keynote address, Dr Sam Amadi, said personal development of individuals influences a group transformation. This, he said, can be achieved through focus and commitment to priorities as well as support for accountability.
Mr Amadi added that Nigerians cannot get their desired change through prayers. He said it has to be a deliberate effort and getting the right people for the right jobs.
The panel session was incisive and engaging.
