The Guild of Corporate Online Publishers (GOCOP) has announced Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Most Rev Dr. Matthew Hassan Kukah, as the keynote speaker at its third annual conference holding on Friday, October 4, 2019 at Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos State.

A statement signed by GOCOP Publicity Secretary, Olumide Iyanda, confirmed that the theme of the conference is “Economy, Security and National Development: The Way Forward in Nigeria.”

Former Director-General of the West African Institute for Financial and Economic Management (WAIFEM), Professor Akpan Hogan Ekpo, and a former Director with the Department of State Services (DSS), Mr. Mike Ejiofor, have been confirmed as discussants.

Former Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Mr Bayo Onanuga, will be the chairman of the occasion.

“Bishop Kukah was chosen to deliver the keynote address because of his global recognition in formulating peace and development agenda,” the GOCOP statement said. 

Having served in prominent capacities in the Investigation Commission of Human Rights Violations (Oputa Panel), National Political Reform Conference and Ogoni-Shell Reconciliation Panel, Bishop Kukah brings an invaluable wealth of experience to the conference. 

The GOCOP conference will bring together policymakers in the private and public sectors.
