General Ike Nwachukwu (rtd) is expected to lead discussions at the Duke Masterclass, an experience and knowledge-sharing platform put together to discuss the role of the private sector in an emerging economic renaissance.

   The session, to be held on June 15in Lagos, is expected to attract Chief Executive Officers and other Corporate leaders in what is seen as one of the most incisive engagements on the economy.

   The Duke’s Masterclass is an innovative premium think tank that is expected to provide a robust platform for the sharing of incisive knowledge and practical experiences aimed at stretching driver-seat capacity in Nigeria’s economic platforms.

  The June 15 session is its second outing, the first being a two-day visit by more than 200 Corporate leaders to Chief Olusegun Obasanjo in March 2022.

   Nwachukwu will be joined by other notable speakers like Prof. Konyin Ajayi; Director, Sahara Power Kola Adeshina and the first indigenous Managing Director, Mobil Oil Plc, Olu Onakoya.

   Among issues to be discussed at the session to be held at Wheatbaker Hotel, are corporate governance, regulatory environment, strategy, and board and management relations.

   The session is expected to work on the push for an indigenous company that can hit 100 years old.

    A renowned investment banker and public affairs commentator who is the convener of the programme, Joseph Edgarsaid, said that the session was put together to push the narrative that the challenges faced in securing a cohesive nationhood are not political but economic.

   “The continued struggle for the control of a unilinear economic power base is what is leading to the seemingly entrenched Political crises and its attendant instability which continually leads to lack of a progressive economic push.

“There is the need to democratise economic power now more than ever before.

  “It has become very imperative and it is as a result of this that robust initiatives like this Masterclass are being organised to strengthen leadership within diverse economic decision-taking strata.”

   He said that Nwachukwu, whose economic diplomacy policy when he was the foreign affairs minister, led to the opening up of the economy to international capital, would deliver a keynote paper that would cover leadership, strategy and vision in the private economic players.

   According to him, former President of Funds Managers Association, Dr. Ore  Sofekun, is leading the technical team that includes Managing Director, Abbey Mortgage Plc, Bolaji Adewumi.
