A former Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) president Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN ) will chair the Right Hand media roundtable discussion, which will hold on Friday at the Raddison Blu Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos.
Its theme is: Fake news and future of the media.
A former Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Dr. Reuben Abati, will be the guest speaker.
The roundtable coincides with the public presentation of Brand in the News – a compilation of articles written by one of best marketing reporters, Mr. Raheem Akingbolu.
The event, which is the first leg of the agency’s yearly stakeholders media engagement, is organised to galvanise stakeholders towards the danger of citizen journalism to the future of the industry.
A statement signed by the Media Relation Manager of the agency, Miss. Morounmubo Alabi, indicated that Chief Olanipekun, a respected law icon and elder statesman, was chosen as chairman by the board.
“The decision to settle for Chief Olanipekun was based on his reputation as a highly respected Lawyer and an intellectual powerhouse in the Nigerian legal environment. We believe he will undoubtedly educate the audience on the theme which was deliberately chosen to highlight the growing challenges of the media management business and the legal implication of citizen journalism,’’ the statement said.
