The yearly lecture, which holds at the Chapel of Christ The Light, Alausa Ikeja, Lagos, at 10am will be delivered by Bishop of the Anglican Communion and Vice Chancellor, Ajayi Crowther University, Oyo, Professor Dapo Asaju.

Also, the former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili and the Lagos State Commissioner for Home Affairs, Abdul-Hakeem Abdul Lateef will lead a panel of discussants from the public and private sectors.

National Chairman of the group, Enock Ajiboso, said: “The topic was carefully chosen to sensitise Nigerians on the need to join hands with the President Muhammadu Buhari government to dissuade people from accumulating unnecessary wealth, which is the major force for corruption in the country.”
