The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will speak on his agenda for Nigeria at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, also known as Chatham House on Dec 5.
Tinubu is expected to speak on security, economy and foreign policy at the United Kingdom’s elite Foreign and Policy Think-tank institution.
In 2011, Tinubu spoke at Chatham House on the rebirth of the opposition in Nigerian politics. The session was titled: “Democracy and the rebirth of the opposition in Nigeria”.
In a series of tweets, the APC presidential campaign council said Tinubu would depart the country on December 4.
Checks by The Nation on Chatham House official website stated that Tinubu will discuss “his vision and recently unveiled a 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.”
It said: “The event is part of a series of events and outputs examining Nigeria’s 2023 elections and political developments.”
“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.”
