28th June, 2018 marked a watershed in the annals of Nigeria’s political history as a think Thank Group, the Voice of Reason, converged in Lagos for the maiden edition of its Colloquium and Leadership Series to take a stand on the agitation for the restructuring of the political and economic structures of the country.
The group said the demand for restructuring has become imperative because the 1999 Constitution now in use was imposed on the people by the military.
They therefore called for the restructuring of a new Nigeria with a new framework for collaborative and autonomous aspirations by all nationalities.
Stakeholders at the event held at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Victoria Island, Lagos with the theme: Restructuring: A Panacea For Justice and Peace of Nigeria: The Imperative for a People’s Constitution, included eminent personalities like former president of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), Niger/Delta Activist, Anko Briggs; Women Advocate and Social Entrepreneur, Toyosi Akerele-Ogunsiji and Col. Tony Nyiam (Rtd), Secretary-General of Lower Niger Congress (LNC).
Also present at the Colloquium were Natasha Akpoti, John Nwodo, Abdul Tafawa Balewa, Tony Nnadi, Omoyele Sowore, founder of Sahara Reporters and Olorogun Sonny Kuku who chaired the occassion.
Speaking at the event, Toyosi Akerele-Ogunsiji lamented the laickadaisical attitude of Nigeria’s youth towards government and governance, charging them to rise to the occasion and take their place and be strategically involved in the political process.
