PUSH NEWS 24 INTERNATIONAL: November 28th, 2022

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.
