2 Min Read

The Chatham House has invited Labour Party’s (LP) flagbearer Peter Obi, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman Professor Mahmood Yakubu, and New Nigeria Peoples Party’S (NNPP) presidential candidate Rabiu Kwankwaso ahead of the upcoming election.

Chatham House is an independent policy institute based in London that provides commentary on global events as well as solutions to global challenges.

According to a program sited by The Herald, Obi will on speak Monday on the topic ‘Nigeria’s 2023 elections: a vision for policy change and institutional reforms.’

The former governor of Anambra State will discuss his vision for policy and governance reforms in Nigeria, including priorities for addressing deep-rooted insecurity and corruption, as well as measures to promote social and political mobility for Nigerian citizens.

On Tuesday, INEC Chairman Yakubu is scheduled to speak about Nigeria’s preparations and priorities for ensuring electoral integrity and inclusivity.

He will also discuss the key challenges and plans for the election, such as security and the use of new technological systems.

Former Kano governor Kwankwaso will be featured on Wednesday, rounding out the discussion on Nigeria’s 2023 elections and political developments.

The NNPP leader will discuss his policy ideas for improving the country’s systems and services, with a particular focus on the education sector and the broader priorities for ensuring secure and inclusive service delivery.

There is currently no indication that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar will speak at Chatham. At a similar event last month, the Director of the Africa Programme at Chatham House, Alex Vines, stated that Atiku, like Kwankwaso and Obi, would be invited to share their vision for renewing hope in Nigeria.

The Herald recalls that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu spoke about the 2023 general elections at the Chatham House.
