2005 National Confab, Nigeria

BUILDING CONSENSUS GROUP IS THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE A FRUITFUL ONE - Abuja, Feb 26, 2005

Prof. Isa Odidi, one of the 50 Delegates and Dr Baba J Adamu is the IT Adviser from Canada representing the jkj\/. Diaspora, specially selected by President Obasanjo to participate in the National Conference.

 
 
 

 

     

 

 

Dr Baba J Adamu has participated in the Canadian Trade Missions to Africa   - South Africa, Nigeria, and Senegal following the G-8 commitment towards Africa:

He also participated as a team-member of the former Canadian Prime Minister John Turner in the Ukraine Presidential Election with co-operation with the EU, and 2005 National Political Conference (Confab) in Nigeria:

   

       

The report of the conference is expected to coalesce with other efforts to herald a "New Nigeria" prior to and after the much talked about 2007 when the next round of elections will hold. The emergence of a "New Nigeria" is, perhaps, the greatest challenge before the Obasanjo government and the opposition groups, whose innermost passions are being given expressions on the platforms of Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) led by Alhaji Balarabe Musa and the Pro-National Conference Organisations (PRONACO) under the guiding lights of foremost nationalist, Pa Anthony Enahoro, Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka and the like of radical Lagos lawyer, Chief Gani Fawehinmi

 

A new light is being shaped as the idea of a consensus group was introduced during the opening of Conference. An interview on NTA and AIT TV with Prof Isa Odidi brought new input, which other delegates are beginning to accept. That a consensus group be formed within the interest groups who are participating in the Conference to forge constructive agenda that will re-focus Nigeria and everyone will emerge a winner.

 

On a similar note, The NIDO Chairman and a Delegate representing NIDO Americas Dr. Ola Kassim expressed willingness to cooperate with everyone who has Nigeria first before anything.

 

It is now becoming clear that the President and his men can go to sleep or feel relaxed that whatever recommendations are reached at the National Conference would still be one that would benefit all Nigerians, and all positions papers and other details will soon be available at the Confab new website currently being designed and supervised by the Conference IT Adviser Dr. Baba Jibrin Adamu

Experience is wealth. Wealth is contagious; can be passed on to others. We believe that the experiences of credible leaders, if carefully articulated,

 

could inspire others into good works. Hence, Youth Education  Initiative has as it's major objective, the duty to publish the profiles of selected world leaders in simplified literature form through which youths worldwide could study both for inspiration and emulation purposes.

This process also have the purpose of making the world leaders realize that, they need to live a credible life knowing that they are being watched by others. It is a great honour to be selected as a worthy example; a source of encouragement for the youths. "The Man, The Nation, His Legacy" Biography of Alhaji (Dr.)  Shehu Ahmadu Musa (CFR, GCON) Makaman Nupe comes at the right time now more than ever. His selection will certainly inspire readers to greater sense of social responsibility and acceptable behaviou, and serve as source of knowledge and encouragement especially to youths in the face of the stiffest challenges of life.

 

 

"Where despair and hopelessness exist, those who have the ability to take action have the moral responsibility to take action to help those who live on the bare edge of survival.  And democracy is more than the creed of our country, it is the inborn hope of our humanity, an ideal we must carry, a trust we must bear and pass along. And even after all these years, we have a long way yet to travel, that is why we must all be involved ..."  - Baba J Adamu

 

FUTURE OF ICT IN NIGERIA
"Today, Nigerian ICT sector is at the cross roads. The direction we choose will determine not just our future but also the legacy we leave behind for future generations of knowledge workers in this country, who have the creativity to dream impossible dreams and the determination to translate those dreams into reality"...
- Baba J Adamu

“Given the emergence of new regional dynamics in development policy and practice, Arewa region MUST fine-tune current regional development perspectives and to develop new ones that are not only more in sync with the present and future global context but with the governance systems being currently adopted that are becoming more and more decentralized and grassroots oriented. States Governors within the Arewa region must come together to create and adopt the Arewa Regional Economic Plan with emphasis on a balanced approach to development and opportunity for all diversity irrespective of one’s tribe, social class, religious belief and even political affiliation; and establish targets for economic growth of the entire region taking advantage of our Demographic Shifts, which will fuel the growth of new sectors, markets, and service lines in our communities. The ability of our diversity to build strength and unity is the power that will propel the region and consequently, the Nigerian industry, into new dimensions of performance and inclusive growth. Catalyzing Inclusive Growth Through ICT-enabled solutions in healthcare, education, financial services and public services can drive socio-economic development and inclusion of more than 30 million citizens each year, faster, cheaper and more effectively than traditional models. The economic plan should be built on current regional opportunities, collaboration and innovation linking States macroeconomic models with regional development and economic plan termed: Regional Econometric Model”President ACRD
