The Christopher Kolade Symposium brings together eminent, highly-credible, and public-spirited Nigerians to:
- Discuss a topic of public importance
- Encourage transparency and accountability by providing a forum for key stakeholders to engage with the public
- Propose practical solutions to national issues of pressing concern
The Christopher Kolade Symposium is held annually in honor of NLI’s Founding Patron, Dr. Christopher Kolade CON, whose achievements in the public and private sectors, as well as his personal life, have set a high benchmark for outstanding citizenship. The intent is for the Christopher Kolade Symposium to become a major forum for healthy debate on key issues relating to public service in Nigeria, as well as a starting platform for the discussion and development of relevant practical national policies.
