The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi is set to speak on Nigeria’s 2023 elections: A vision for policy change and institutional reforms at the Chatham House, London, United Kingdom on January 16, 2023.

Nigeria is scheduled to hold presidential and national assembly elections on 25 February as well as governorship and other subnational elections on 11 March.

In a statement obtained by The Daily, www.thedaily-ng.com, Chatham House maintained that, “The elections end President Muhammadu Buhari’s two terms in office since his election in 2015 and mark the first time he is not a candidate in a presidential election in 20 years – an important marker in Nigeria’s trajectory of democratic consolidation.

“Nigeria’s Electoral Act, enacted in February 2022, and has contributed to improved hope around the election process, reflected in the addition of 12.29 million new voters, 9.51 million of which were then validated, in Nigeria’s voter registration exercise, bringing the total number of registered voters to more than 93 million.
“Nigeria stands at a critical juncture, having suffered from two recessions in the past six years, unprecedented levels of physical and food insecurity, persistent fuel scarcity, and high levels of crude oil theft.

“Civic fatigue also remains an important challenge and Buhari’s three main policy pillars of security, economy, and corruption continue to be defining issues for citizens.
“Peter Gregory Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, discusses his vision for policy and governance reforms in Nigeria, including the priorities for tackling deep-rooted insecurity and corruption, and measures to promote social and political mobility for Nigerian citizens.

“This event is a members and Africa programme event and is part of a series of events and outputs examining Nigeria’s 2023 elections and political developments.
“As space is limited, we will be operating a ballot-operated system for in person registrations. Please register by Thursday 12 January. Successful registrants will be notified by Friday 13 January. Please note that for this event we are unable to register member guests.”
