ELDER STATESMAN, Professor Anya Oko Anya will be Lead Speaker at the next edition of Men’s Breakfast Roundtable on Saturday, July 8, 2017.

Holding at Bluenest Hotels, 9, Osolo Way, just off the Murtala Mohammed Airport Road, Ikeja, the theme is ‘The Men Nigeria Needs Now!’ Coming against the background of the current geo-political sabre-rattling in the country and role of men in it, it promises to be time soul-searching, reflection and agenda-setting for the men from all walks of life gathering at the breakfast meeting.

Men’s Breakfast Roundtable is Kingdom Men Global Network’s gathering of men for the discussion of issues which the pulpits do not handle. A sizeable part of the four-hour programme is devoted to an interactive session of questions and comments from the men in attendance including pastors and church leaders and many more.
