The Royal Chatham Institute have extended an invitation to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi to speak at the House, to discuss his plans ahead of the 2023 general election.
Obi is the second presidential candidate to be invited to address the global forum.
In a tweet on Thursday, Chatham House Africa announced the development, saying, “Nigeria’s 2023 Elections: In conversation with @PeterObi.
‘The second of our events examining #Nigeria’s 2023 elections and political developments will take place on January 16, 2023.’
The Eastern Updates recalls that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, appeared at Chatham House in London, where he revealed some of his plans for major sectors like defence, economy, education, and technology.
Tinubu’s performance at the forum has since been a subject of controversy as both praises and knocks trailed the former Lagos State governor from supporters and opposition members respectively.
In another report, the Presidential Campaign Council of Labour Party (LP) in Anambra State has said that Nigeria is in need of critical change and needs the enthronement of a credible leader.
This was announced by the council yesterday during the inauguration of the Labour Party’s 900-member presidential campaign committee in Anambra State.
The occasion brought together members of the Anambra State executive council who collaborated with Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, throughout his eight-year governorship.
The ceremony was held in Awka on Wednesday.
Mr. Joe-Martins Uzodike who is the state’s PCC chairman said that the LP is now a serious project that is out to rescue Nigeria out of its current awful position and that the country needs vital reform right now.
He charged the members to work together to ensure that the party gets a resounding victory at the presidential poll, warning that the party would not hesitate to remove any member, found wanting in his assigned duty or office.
