The Boiling Point Arena, a popular monthly digital discourse centered on governance and national development, is set to welcome two distinguished Nigerian intellectuals, Yemi Farounbi and Olutayo Adesina.

The upcoming episode will see them unravel the intricate theme: “Travails of Nigeria’s Federalism and the Imperative of Rethinking our System of Government.”

Scheduled as the 10th edition of this engaging series, the event is slated for Sunday, August 13, 2023, conducted via Google Meet. Sweet 107.1FM, radio station based in Abeokuta, is poised to transmit the conversation live, amplifying its reach to a wider audience.

An illustrious media personality and former Nigerian Ambassador to the Philippines and Cambodia, Farounbi will join forces with a respected historian and scholar from the University of Ibadan, Adesina. Together, they will offer their insightful perspectives on the pressing subject matter.

Chairman of the Organizing Committee for the event and a prominent figure in Nigeria’s Public Relations realm, Eddy Ademosu disclosed that the discussion will delve into the foundational identity crisis of Nigeria, exploring the country’s trajectory from its inception and the diverse systems of governance that have shaped its course.

With the objective of presenting viable solutions to extricate the nation from its challenges, Dr. Farounbi and Adesina are expected to navigate a range of options. These alternatives may encompass a return to the former Parliamentary System, retaining the existing American-style democracy, or even proposing a home-grown approach as a potential remedy.

The debate is anticipated to encompass the contentious topic of the bicameral legislature’s cost-effectiveness and the growing concern over the bloated cost of governance.

Ademosu applauded the support of Sweet FM’s management, led by CEO Olugbenga Obadara, for endorsing meaningful initiatives like Boiling Point Arena. The collaboration extends the platform’s reach through both terrestrial and online channels, broadening its impact.

Boasting a roster of eminent personalities, including over 200 Professors, technocrats, industry leaders, High Court Justices, traditional rulers, security experts, and media professionals, Boiling Point resonates as a prominent news and general interest forum.
