Push News 24 International reports and confirms that the National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is billed to speak on December 5th, 2022, 1pm – 2pm at the Chatham House on the topic , Nigeria’s 2023 elections: Security, economic and foreign policy imperatives

Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, is an independent policy institute based in London. Our mission is to help build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world.

Nigeria is scheduled to hold presidential and national assembly elections on 25 February 2023 as well as governorship and other subnational elections on 11 March 2023.

The elections will end President Muhammadu Buhari’s two terms in office since his election in 2015 and will mark the first time that he is not engaging in a presidential poll since Nigeria’s transition to civilian rule in 1999 – an important marker in Nigeria’s trajectory of democratic consolidation.

Nigeria’s recently enacted Electoral Act has contributed to improved hope around the election process, reflected in the addition of 12.29 million new voters in Nigeria’s voter registration exercise across the federation’s 36 states and 1,491 constituencies.

Yet Nigeria stands at a critical juncture, having suffered from two recessions in the past six years, unprecedented levels of food insecurity, persistent fuel scarcity and high levels of crude oil theft.

Civic fatigue also remains an important challenge and President Muhammadu Buhari’s three main policy pillars of security, economy and corruption continue to be defining issues for citizens.

At this event, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, presidential candidate for the All-Progressives Congress, discusses his vision and recently unveiled manifesto for ‘renewing hope’ in Nigeria including his policy proposals for economic reform and revival and how to deliver secure and inclusive job opportunities for Nigerian citizens.

Push News 24 International reports that this event is part of a series of events and outputs examining Nigeria’s 2023 elections and political developments.

Chatham House is a world-famous think tank whose ideas help answer the big questions that are shaping our world, addressing issues like climate change, fake news, and conflict. Students will be able to interact with world-leading experts on international affairs and gain an insight into careers within the charity and not-for-profit sector as a whole during their open day.

Nigerian, Alex Afolabi Ogunsakin born on February 23, 1983 believed to currently living in Nigeria has been list by the FBI as one of the most wanted by the US government on allegations bordering around Business Email Compromise fraud schemes.

The United States Department of Justice, also known as the Justice Department, is a federal executive department of the United States government tasked with the enforcement of federal law and administration of justice in the United States.

Alex Afolabi Ogunshakin is wanted for his alleged involvement in a Business Email Compromise (BEC) scheme that defrauded over 70 different businesses in the United States resulting in combined losses of over $6,000,000 USD.

Ogunshakin allegedly provided bank accounts to Richard Izuchukwu Uzuh, and other co-conspirators Felix Osilama Okpoh, Abiola Ayorinde Kayode, and Nnamdi Orson Benson, that were used to receive fraudulent wire transfers. Ogunshakin allegedly also assisted in these schemes by sending spoofed emails to businesses used to solicit fraudulent wire transfers. Ogunshakin allegedly later conducted his own BEC schemes, learning from Uzuh and others. On August 21, 2019, Ogunshakin was indicted in the United States District Court, District of Nebraska, Omaha, Nebraska, on charges of Conspiracy to Commit Wire Fraud. On August 22, 2019, a federal warrant was issued for his arrest.

Business email compromise (BEC)—also known as email account compromise (EAC)—is one of the most financially damaging online crimes. It exploits the fact that so many of us rely on email to conduct business—both personal and professional.

In a BEC scam, criminals send an email message that appears to come from a known source making a legitimate request.

Aishatu Binani has emerged as the winner of the APC governorship primary election, becoming the first woman to win the governorship ticket of a major political party.

The Yola Division of the Court of Appeal has declared Senator Aishatu Binani as the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the state.Presided over by Justices Tani Hassan, Mistura Bolaji-Yusuf and James Abundaga respectively, the court set aside the judgement of a Federal High Court which nullified the governorship primary and declared that APC has no candidate for the 2023 governorship election.

The justices ordered that the name of Ms Binani be submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the flag bearer for the election.The Federal High Court 1 sitting in Yola, Adamawa State, presided over by Justice A.M. Anka, has voided the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election, which produced the Senator representing Adamawa Central, Aishatu Dahiru Binani, as the governorship candidate of the party for the 2023 elections.Justice Anka said the party has no governorship candidate for 2023 elections in the State, as he did not order for a fresh primary election.Recall that Binani during the primary election conducted on May 27, 2022, polled 430 votes to defeat her closest rival, Nuhu Ribadu, who got 288 votes; former governor Umaru Bindow scored 103 votes; Hon.

There have been more than 600 mass shootings so far this year in the United States, according to the Gun Violence Archive.

Mass shootings, as is well known by now, are a common recurrence in the United States. We ended 2021 with 690 mass shootings, per the Gun Violence Archive. The year before saw 611. And 2019 had 417.

The massacres don’t come out of nowhere, says Mark Follman, who has been researching mass shootings since 2012, when a gunman killed 12 people at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo.

“This is planned violence. There is, in every one of these cases, always a trail of … behavioral warning signs,” he told NPR in May.

Follman, the author of a new book, Trigger Points, says the role of mental health is also widely misunderstood.

“The general public views mass shooters as people who are totally crazy, insane. It fits with the idea of snapping, as if these people are totally detached from reality.”

That’s not the case, he said. There’s “a very rational thought process” that goes into planning and carrying out mass shootings.

The suspect in the Uvalde attack was a high school student who bought at least two AR-15-style rifles shortly after his 18th birthday and shot his grandmother before going to the elementary school, officials said.

A shooter opened fire late Tuesday at a Walmart in the Tidewater area of Virginia, killing five people. The attack comes days after five people were killed and 18 more injured in a shooting at Club Q, an LGBTQ club in Colorado Springs, and about a week after a shooting at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville left three dead.

Mass shootings — where four or more people, not including the shooter, are injured or killed — have averaged more than one per day so far this year. Not a single week in 2022 has passed without at least four mass shootings.

Mass shootings have been on the rise in recent years. In 2021, almost 700 such incidents occurred, a jump from the 610 in 2020 and 417 in 2019. Before that, incidents had not topped 400 annually since the Gun Violence Archive started tracking in 2014.

2022 is close behind the high reached last year when comparing the same time period.

The toll is immense. Mass shootings have killed 635 people and injured 2,540 more through November 22nd.
