The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, is the special guest of honour while Dr. Kalu Idika Kalu, a renowned economist and former Minister of Finance is the guest speaker.

According to the Acting Director General/CEO of the institute, the Annual Directors Dinner is usually a black tie event, an evening of fine dining, networking and honouring.

The royal fathers to be honoured at the event include the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II; His Imperial Majesty, Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, and His Majesty, Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe. They are being inducted into the institute’s Hall of Fellows.
