PHOTONEWS: Joe Okei-Odumakin Floats New Civil Society Platform- 'Center for Change'
The President of Campaign for Democracy (CD), President of Women Arise for Change Initiative (WA) and the chairperson of Task force at Professor Wole Soyinka's 'Citizens Forum' among other civil society statuses, Dr. Josephine Okei-Odumakin has launched yet another NGO.
Her new platform, Center for Change (CC), lists Pastor Tunde Bakare, the convener of Save Nigeria Group (SNG) as its Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
Center for Change, Okei-Odumakin said, started as Center for Participatory Governance following yearnings of some activists to be part of the political determination process as Nigeria transmuted into a Democracy. She announced that CC became fully registered only a few days ago.
At the launch in Sheraton Hotel Lagos today, Prof. Pius Adesanmi, a prolific writer and lecturer at the Carleton University in Canada served his usual reflection on the State of the Nigerian Nation with a sense of satirical narration.
Prof. Adesanmi's lecture titled; "Boda Nigeria, Bros Naija and Soul Things" wove history with captivating philosophies around what constitutes the missing soul of Nigeria, separately from the unifying souls of other highly rated countries of the Globe.
