Unlike in earlier dozen of a dozen and one-half reports of a total of eighteen sessions of the Iju Public Affairs Forum (IPAF) which I usually handled as report-and-comment, Ms. Pepple’s Lecture was so eye-opening and so unlike the usual government officials’ points of views I’ve decided to just let it all hang out for readers to draw their own conclusions.
Additions by way of my commentaries or subtraction through editing to reduce would only be superfluous.
Hei, it’s a weekend, anyway, and Ms. Pepple’s lecture does not come across as one of those government agents out on propaganda!
PS. For an overview, read Professor Dele Olowu’s commentary (next). This is usually the format at the IPAF sessions: the lecturer; a Commentary by a pre-designated specialist followed by the Questions and Answers.
