With just over a month to February presidential election, three of the main protagonists will next week mount the podium at the Royal Institute of International Affairs- Chatham House – to talk about their prospects and readiness.
Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, kick starts the Africa Programme event series tagged “Nigeria’s 2023 elections” on Monday afternoon, when he will talk about “a vision for policy change and institutional reforms.”
Tuesday will be the turn of Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). His brief is to discuss the electoral umpire’s “Preparations and priorities for electoral integrity and inclusion.”
On Wednesday, the presidential hopeful of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, will have his turn to talk about his chances. The former Kano State Governor will speak on “Service delivery and policy alternatives.”
Last month, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, had his day at the same venue . Although the Peoples Democratic Party’s Atiku Abubakar is said to be in London strategising, he too is expected to have a date to talk about his chances before the February 25 election.
