Boris Johnson, former prime minister of the United Kingdom, to speak at the 16th session of the Osigwe Anyiam-Osigwe annual lecture series. Anyiam-Osigwe Group

George Anyiam-Osigwe, acting coordinator-general of Osigwe Anyiam-Osigwe Foundation, said the former UK prime minister joins the rank of global statespersons that had addressed the lecture’s past audience.

President Muhammadu Buhari addressed the last series.

The former UK leader will examine the central theme of the lecture, ‘Rehumanising Human Experience: A Synopsis of Anyiam-Osigwe’s treatises’ in Lagos on March 27.

Anyiam-Osigwe said Boris’ address will offer solutions to some of the global challenges that are currently plaguing the world, stoking citizens’ frustrations and anger.

He said the former PM was chosen for his courage, extensive and practical knowledge in confronting some world knotty domestic and global problems such as Brexit, COVID-19, Russia-Ukraine war during his premiership. “We considered him the right person to speak to the theme of Rehumanising the world,” Anyiam-Osigwe said. “The world has gone through serious upheavals in the last two decades; from the civil war in Syria, political instability in parts of Africa, Brexit that has really tested United Kingdom and the entire European Union, trade war between China and America and the COVID-19 pandemic that shut down the entire world for more than a year with attendant social and economic dislocation.

“Former Prime Minister Johnson is one of the active global leaders of the last decade who had to deal with some of these problems and led the world through a once-in-a-century pandemic.

“We are of the strong view that our country and the world can benefit from his experience and perspectives.”
