GENERAL MUHAMMADU BUHARI, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS, NIGERIA
CHAIR: SIR RICHARD GOZNEY KCMG CVO KSTJ, BRITISH HIGH COMMISSIONER TO NIGERIA (2004-07)

Overview

The postponement of Nigeria’s fifth election since its return to civilian rule in 1999, together with fierce political competition, a security crisis and severe economic challenges linked to the drop in oil price, have thrown into sharp relief the challenges of conducting this essential process in such a complex environment. While there is widespread speculation as to the reasons for the delay, there is also widespread acknowledgment of the necessity that national elections do now take place as scheduled on 28 March.

General Muhammadu Buhari, former military ruler (1983-85) and now opposition presidential candidate, will discuss the importance of democracy for Africa’s future, and in particular why delivering dividends of elected government matter both to Nigeria and internationally.
