Nigerian Radio Launches New Program, “Our Common Thread”
Radio Now, a news service dedicated to providing factual, unbiased and focused information on Nigeria, announces the launch of its Radio Now Specials program.
The first edition of the program is scheduled to air at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 18, 2021.
Radio Now Specials aims to create and organize meaningful interactions “that inspire us to be and do better, one person and one step at a time.”
His press release issued on Thursday is reproduced below:
The inaugural edition of this series, Our Common Thread, focuses on governance and nationalism and how spirituality can support progress. Our common thread presents leaders from different ethnic, cultural, professional and religious backgrounds.
The aim is to create closer ties between Nigerians, whatever their religion or culture, by helping everyone to explore and find that place of their collective humanity from which we can build a society that is representative of all, equitable and just.
The secondary goal is to provide tangible solutions to today’s problems that will ultimately improve the lives of countless people of color around the world.
With the mandate to audit our history, our minds and our philosophies, in order to find the common thread, and to measure it against the present, we hope to give ourselves the opportunity to question the status quo existing in various fields – and in doing so, propose solutions conducive to progress and open-mindedness.
This edition of Our Common Thread is a ninety minute program and will feature Dr Bayo Akomolafe, Executive Director and Chief Curator of The Emergence Network. Dr. Akomolafe is world-renowned for his approach to global crises, civic action and social change – issues he examines from an indigenous perspective.
“These times are urgent; let’s slow down. – Bayo Akomolafe
This collaborative project offers interaction between the guest speaker, facilitators and members of the public. The event will end with a question-and-answer session, featuring questions from the virtual audience in attendance.
The show will be broadcast live on Radio Now 95.3 FM, Zoom, YouTube, and a recorded version will then be broadcast on the network service of the Nigerian Television Authority.
