Two out of the four leading candidates in Nigeria’s 2023 presidential elections have confirmed their availability to speak at the forthcoming Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) holding in Lagos between 19 and 26th of this month.

Tagged the  “Bold Transitions”, the 2022 NBA Annual General Conference is scheduled to hold at the Eko Atlantic City in Lagos.

The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, who have both confirmed their availability will be speaking in a panel session on the topic “Democratic Transitions in 21st Century Nigeria: 2023 and Beyond”.

A press release by the NBA’s Technical Committee on Conference Planning (TCCP), also said invites were sent to the other two candidates, Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), but they were yet to confirm their availability.

The TCCP said the Presidential Candidates’ session will come after the conference opening ceremony and will afford participants a rare opportunity to interact with the presidential candidates just six months ahead of Nigeria’s general elections next year.

“We are excited to announce that of the four leading presidential candidates we sent invites to, two have confirmed to us that they would be available to speak at the 62nd NBA Annual General Conference holding at the Eko Atlantic City in Lagos. We await a response from the other two and we are hopeful that it would be positive,” .

We are looking forward to seeing participants have a robust engagement with the candidates,” the statement said.
