Bola Tinubu, Obi’s All Progressives Congress (APC) rival, made a presentation at Chatham House in London on December 5, 2022, where he discussed some of his proposals for important fields like technology, education, military, and the economy.
As part of the event, which drew harsh criticism, Tinubu also assigned some of his loyalists, including governors and MPs now in office, to respond to questions from attendees.
There are speculations that the institute may also invite the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, who is another strong contender for the presidency race.
