THE IMPACT Square Online ,which is a discourse on various issues affecting our society ,was introduced in July 2016. The initiative, since its introduction, has been setting the pace for others to follow and imitate.
The initiative has also helped , in no small measure ,in bringing issues affecting the division to the front burner for discussions and in the process , proffering solutions to some of the issues.
The beauty of this initiative is that it has raised the level of interactions between residents and the political, traditional, opinion and community leaders.
To sustain this tempo, THE IMPACT Group is set to make the interactions physical in truly community setting and to achieve this, we shall be partnering with a prominent hospitality business in Ikorodu, THE FALCONS BAR & SUITES, located at Ipakodo in Ikorodu West Local Council Development Area.
For a start, it shall be a monthly gathering i.e. last Friday of every month, though, the SQUARE GATHERING may be summoned anytime there is urgent need to discuss, appraise and proffer solutions to issues affecting us as a people.
Issues to be discussed during the meet will be generated on THE IMPACT platform, though, the organizers may come up with issue/topic from time-to-time.
Like the we have stated in 2016, our role as the platform providing the opportunity is to MODERATE and also PARTICIPATE and use the resolution(s) as news stories, editorial, column write ups,etc , and also to bring the attention of necessary authorities to these issues with the aim of FINDING SOLUTIONS where necessary.
In addition, we shall also be working towards bringing the contributions/views and positions of our representatives, traditional rulers/chiefs, religious and opinion leaders on every issue.
The inaugural edition, which would be used in marking the 5th anniversary of THE IMPACT Newspaper, is scheduled to hold in September. We shall avail you the details later.
