January 17, (THEWILL) – The National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, will on Tuesday afternoon, address the United Kingdom policy institute, Chatham House, on the Commission’s preparation for the February 25 and March 11 elections in Nigeria.

According to Chatham House, “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.

“Professor Mahmood Yakubu, chairman of Nigeria’s Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), discusses preparations and priorities for ensuring electoral integrity and inclusivity.

“He also discusses key challenges and plans for the conduct of the elections, including election security and the use of new technological systems.”

Also, on Wednesday, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso, is expected to speak at the UK-based international policy institute on the topic, ‘Nigeria’s 2023 elections: Service delivery and policy alternatives’.

Earlier, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi and his counterpart in the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, had addressed the House on their agenda for Nigeria.
