THE BIG EVENT IS FINALLY HERE… (Rolling the drums!) HOUSE OF JUSTICE 2016 DINNER & AWARDS NIGHT.
TOPIC: COMBATING ECONOMIC CRIMES WITHIN THE AMBIT OF THE RULE OF LAW- The Challenge For Nigeria
Dear partners and followers of House of Justice in Kaduna, Nigeria, Africa and the Globe.
No doubt, 2016 has been quite a year- of recession, clamp down on judicial corruption, election of Donald Trump as POTUS, insecurity…you name it. Yet, we are here; we are survivors. We won some and lost some. That is why your legal companion, House of Justice, invites all members of the public to cap up this year at a Dinner and Awards banquet which enables you to let down your hair, put on your dancing shoes and interact with the very best, all in a congenial and relaxed atmosphere. It promises to be a brimming, bubbly eclectic mix of real fun and nationalism.
We have taken the pains to invite the very best…and all for you. This year, our Guest Speaker comes all the way from Brussels, Belgium. Oxford-bred Dr Obadiah Mailafia is a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. He presently heads the secretariat of the African Carribean Pacific Group of States. Dr Mailafia is a socio-economist and policy analyst with profound experience in International Development, Banking and Finance. He is one of the world’s deep philosophers and a well sought after speech writer for Presidents and Diplomats.
The Chairman of the event is Dr Usman Bugaje, a Pharmacist and one time National Secretary of the Action Congress of Nigeria. He contested the last gubernatorial elections of Katsina State, was a political adviser to Vice President Atiku Abubakar, a prolific writer and speaker and a man who engenders public intellectual participation. He is presently the Convener, Arewa Research and Development Project.
Prof Chidi Anselm Odinkalu is synonymous to one word: Human Rights. The immediate past Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission is a leading member of the International Human Rights Community. He was a lecturer at the Harvard Law School, Cambridge, he is an adviser to the United Nations, a Senior Legal Officer of the Open Society Foundations and presently the President General of USOSA. He is the Chief Host at this year’s event.
