Exploring “The Dawn Commission Approach”
In a world characterized by interconnectedness and collaboration, regional integration has become a pivotal factor in shaping the future. It is against this backdrop that we are thrilled to announce the much-anticipated 2023 Goke Omisore Annual Lecture (GOAL) dedicated to the memory of the late Convener of VOR, Prince Nicholas Olagoke Omisore.
About the GOAL Event
The GOAL event, now in its third edition, serves as a platform for thought leaders, experts, and individuals passionate about regional development to come together and engage in meaningful discourse. This year, we are proud to present a profound theme: “SOUTHWEST REGIONAL INTEGRATION: THE DAWN COMMISSION APPROACH.”
Why Regional Integration Matters
Regional integration is the process of nations and states coming together to form closer economic, political, and social bonds. It’s a strategy that strengthens regional identities and enhances the member states’ collective well-being. For Nigeria’s Southwest region, regional integration has significant implications for economic growth, social cohesion, and sustainable development.
The Dawn Commission Approach
At the heart of our discussions will be “The Dawn Commission Approach.” Named after the famous Western Nigeria Regional Development Commission of the 1950s, this approach seeks to harness the region’s potential by fostering collaboration, innovation, and forward-thinking policies.
What to Expect
The 2023 GOAL event promises a day filled with enlightening presentations, panel discussions, and interactive sessions. You’ll have the opportunity to hear from renowned experts, policymakers, and visionaries who will share their insights on regional integration and “The Dawn Commission Approach.” Expect engaging conversations, networking opportunities, and a chance to contribute to the region’s future.
