A memorial lecture to mark one year of the death of Emeka Enechi, a former Chairman of Lagos State Sports Writers Association (SWAN) will hold on August 31 at the Secretariat of SWAN inside the National Stadium in Lagos.
Chairman of the Board of Emeka Enechi Trust Fund, Mr. Frank Ilaboya said the lecture will be the first in a series of such events to be held annually to keep the memory of Enechi who died on August 29, 2010 at a hospital in Asaba, Delta State following complications in injuries sustained from a motor accident.
Ilaboya further disclosed that the theme of the lecture has been carefully chosen to prepare practicing Journalists on the need to invest for their family while in active service.
“The truth is that we must come to terms with the fact that death is inevitable and can come suddenly like in the case of our friend Enechi and many others who have passed on before him while in their prime. The foundation has therefore chosen this theme as a contribution to capacity building in Lagos SWAN because life after work is more challenging than what we experience while active”, Ilaboya explained.
Resource persons for the lecture have been chosen from the Insurance and Investment Advisors’ sector of the finance industry. Ilaboya further disclosed that a report of the activities of the Trust Fund will be presented on the occasion of the anniversary lecture.
