Chatham House has announced that the presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, will be the guest in the second series of the conversation on Nigeria’s 2023 general election.
The world-leading policy institute disclosed this in a tweet on Thursday, three days after it hosted the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
Obi, former governor of Anambra State, is expected to attend the event scheduled for 16 January 2023 in London, the United Kingdom to discuss his plans for Nigeria and Nigerians if elected in the 25 February 2023 presidential election.
The International Centre for Investigative Reporting (ICIR) reports that the director of the Africa programme at Chatham House, Alex Vines, disclosed, during Tinubu’s appearance, that the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other presidential candidates will also be invited to share their plans for Nigeria.
“Chatham House will host an event with INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu. We have invitations out to three other presidential candidates for this election in Nigeria,” ICIR quoted Vines as saying.
The “three other” presidential candidates and the dates for the engagement with the INEC chairman and the presidential candidates are yet to officially be made public.
