Commenting on the what the association hopes to achieve an end of this loaded programme, Lukman Ishau, Secretary of the association said,

“Akin to last year’s event, the 2020 conference will definitely create innovative in-roads that will lead to solutions to the myriads of challenges facing brand Nigeria.

Of particular reference is the increasing temperature boiling over the brutality of our security forces, insurgent activities and banditry that has really affected agriculture, the current COVID 19 pandemic and the threat of economic recession just to mention a few. It is our belief that at the end of this conference, we will generate a lot of answers to most of these problems”
