The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Lagos Information Chapel, annual Ramadan Lecture with the theme, “Home as the Bedrock of a Better Society”, will hold on Wednesday, April 5, 2023 (14th Ramadan) at the Adeyemi-Bero Auditorium, Alausa, Ikeja,   

The Chairman of the Planning Committee, Mr. Taofeek Lawal, who disclosed this today, added that the 17th edition of the NUJ Ramadan Lecture will feature Dr. Isa AbdulMujeeb, the Medical Director of Our Friend Hospital, Ogba and Dr. Ganiu Bamgbose of the Lagos State University (LASU) Ojo as guest speakers. The programme will commence at 10 am prompt. 

According to him, the two erudite scholars will deliver lectures on “Islamic Perspectives as a Panacea to Insecurity in the Nation” and “Inordinate Greed for Wealth: Expected Role of Parents in Modelling Children towards an Effective Nation Building”, respectively.  

While pointing out that the diversity of speakers will bring different perspectives, and enriches and deepens the conversation, Lawal explained that the annual lecture was initiated about two decades ago and that the theme of this year’s edition was carefully chosen given the generally acknowledged role of the family as the bedrock of a better society. 

His words, “As basic and essential building blocks of societies, the family has a crucial role to play in social development and instilling values of citizenship and belonging in the society as well as effecting positive change in a nation confronted with a myriad of social and political malady”.   

Lawal, who is the Director of Public Affairs, Lagos State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, stated that the NUJ annual Ramadan Lecture of the Lagos Information Chapel has gained prominence because of its focus on issues of national importance, hence, the quality and diversity of the speakers and the general organisation of the programme.  

While appreciating the Chairman of the Chapel, Comrade Debo Adeniji and his executive committee for finding members of the 2023 Ramadan Committee worthy of the assignment, the Committee Chairman enjoined all members of NUJ as well as the general public to find time to attend the lecture, saying that they would benefit immensely for doing so.
