However, Tinubu is not the only presidential candidate that will use the Chatham House platform to explain his action plan to the Nigerian electorates ahead of the 2023 elections, 3 others have been invited.

Other presidential candidates invited to speak at Chatham House are listed below.

Atiku Abubakar

According to Alex Vines, the chairman of the conversation between Tinubu and Chatham House, the PDP presidential candidate has also been invited to speak at the institute.

Recall that Atiku was at the institute in 2011, where he spoke about Nigeria’s economy. Thus, he is not new to the terrain, just like Tinubu.

Rabiu Kwankwaso

The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) was also reported to have been invited to speak at the institute before next year's poll.

Kwankwaso is a former governor of Kano state and former minister of defence. He was part of the PDP faction that joined the APC at his early stage but left the ruling party after falling out with his successor, Abdullahi Ganduje, the current governor of Kano state.

He then formed the NNPP in 2022 and became the new party’s presidential candidate.

Peter Obi

The Labour Party presidential candidate had been criticised for running for president without a political structure.

However, the former governor of Anambra has been getting media attention, with many youths supporting him on social media.

He has also been invited to speak about his action plans for the 2023 election at the Chatham House.

2023 Election: How APC silenced PDP’s rally in Lagos with Tinubu’s address at Chatham House

Legit.ng earlier reported that the PDP presidential rally in Lagos should have raised some dust in the 2023 election campaigns but was watered down by Bola Tinubu's address at Chatham House in London.

The media were paying attention to punchlines from the PDP Lagos rally until the Chatham House conversation with Tinubu started.

The PDP presidential campaign council spokespersons also failed to drop punchlines for the media to promote the party's candidate as they jumped on criticising Tinubu's outing.
