  1. This is tomorrow. So short notice. How does one get invited to attend? I would have loved to present at this event. This is an area of serious concern and interest to me. It is not just about the economics but more about the political ramifications for Nigeria to shift from the easy rent from oil and gas that fuels our political industry – the main reason that few politicians fight to gain control and plunder, to a value-added economy built on increased productivity, competitiveness, consumption and why our population is of huge importance if we can make most Nigerians actively and productively involved – the need for thinking leaders.
