DAWN Commission will be inviting the presidential candidates of the major political parties for the 2023 General Elections to a public interactive session with critical segments of the South West public on their agenda, plans, and programmes
This is centered on the historical trajectory of the Southwest geo-political zone of Nigeria, especially with the uncertainties often presented by the Nigerian political environment, as well as the constant proclivities of political changes, both within the region and the country in general, to get in the way of sustainable development.
The strategic intent is to appreciate the commitment and agenda of the candidates, looking beyond all divisive tendencies and towards a cohesive, coherent, and balanced approach to fast-track the development of Nigeria, as a consolidated bloc, and a strategic frontier for the development of the African continent.
It will also be an opportunity for the candidates to articulate their plans in the face of the clamour by the people of the southwest of Nigeria for unhindered and unconstrained socio-economic development.
The DAWN Commission will be convening this event, with every sense of responsibility and in recognition of our role as a strategic institution for pursuing the composite development interests of Southwest Nigeria, not as an exclusive territory, but as a Region with its own unique orientation, challenges, and development priorities within the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
