Marwa, who is former Governor of Lagos State, and a national and international security expert, is a force to reckon with in the fight against drug trafficking and abuse in Nigeria and Africa.

“We have expertise in reporting the oil and gas sector with its attendant environmental challenges.

“We aim to unearth exclusive stories about real people and the challenges they are facing in their day-to-day activities.

“We do this bearing in mind that government can only act to influence the lives of people positively if they are aware of their true situation. Hence, our objective is to use our investigative skills to ferret out information in the sectors we focus on and produce an unbiased report which will actually influence the government and decision-makers to take actions that will make society better.”

The Anniversary Lecture Series, according to Maureen Chibgo, was established to celebrate the best minds in the society and to tap from them for the purpose of enriching the discourse in the nation’s development.
