Waziri Adio, the former executive secretary of the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI), was all chatty and reflective as he took the audience through the content of his recently released ‘Arc of the Possible’, a memoir on his tenure piloting the affair of the agency.

The book reading was held on Saturday at the RovingHeights Bookstore, Landmark Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos.

The cerebral event was hosted by Toyin Akinosho, the art enthusiast and publisher, who anchored with stabs of jokes and banters that filled the room with laughter.

Also present among the engaging audience were Simon Kolawole, the chief executive officer (CEO) and founder of TheCable Newspaper Limited, Semiu Lamidi, CFO of First Bank Ghana and Taiwo Obe, founder and director of the Journalism Clinic.

‘The Arc of the Possible’, a publication of Cable Books, has 25 chapters spanning five sections and nearly 300 pages.

In the memoir, Adio chronicles his days in office at NEITI and the hurdles he faced trying to stay true to his values.

The book also captures the ideas he tried to bring into his job, the innovations he brought to bear, especially in the policy arena, and the lessons he believes all who want to serve in public office in Nigeria need to imbibe.
