Founder of Lagos Business School and former Presidential Candidate, Professor Pat Utomi is optimistic that past mistakes as a nation can be addressed by the lessons of the Nigerian-Biafran war, Njenje Media News reports.

The Professor was speaking at the ‘Never Again Conference: 51 Years After The Nigerian-Biafran War’ a Virtual event organized by Nzuko Umunna, a pan-Igbo socio-cultural organization and anchored by Ovation International and Njenje Media.

Professor Pat Utomi, who is the Chairman of the Conference Planning Committee said the aim of the virtual summit was to bring a better understanding of the civil war and the aftermath to the people of Nigeria.

In his words;

“It will become a source of energy for bringing a new nation. We know that if people learn enough from errors of yesterday, they can, in fact, make more progress than they are currently making,”

“One of the biggest challenges of nation-building is the kind of trust deficits that exist which make policy implementation very challenging. A better understanding of the civil war will make it become a ladder that people can climb to higher levels of growth,” he added.

The Virtual conference hosted by veteran Media gurus, Chief Dele Momodu and Maazi Ezeoke, had in attendance Bishop Mattew Kukah, Mrs Onyeka Owenu, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, Maazi Nnamdi Kanu, Mrs Ankio Briggs, Senator Shehu Sani amongst others.
