Magnum is a forum where intellectuals and thinkers rub their minds on critical national and global issues with a view to proffering solutions that would positively impact humanity.

In like manner, it is a meeting point for regular citizens and policymakers to mingle intellectually and, in the process, share practical ideas for tackling existential challenges in our society. seeks to engender an atmosphere whereby folks from all walks of life would share their experiences regarding the issues they are contending with. That way, policymakers will learn first-hand what is ailing members of society. Together, policymakers and citizens will fuse their minds to fudge solutions such that public policies would be shaped by the robust interactions between citizens on the streets and their leaders in the corridors of power.

Arising from the above, in this forum, anyone with a sense of patriotism and love for humanity is welcome to share their opinion on any range of development-oriented subjects, no matter how fringe, provided in doing so, the rights of others are respected, and no intemperate language is employed.

Welcome to where we are all leaders in our individual rights.
