Organizers of the roundtable for political party candidates from Kogi Central has adopted hybrid interface with onsite and virtual discourse.

The 2nd edition of the roundtable is slated for September 3 in Okene.

According to a statement signed by Mohammed Bougei Attah and Hajia Bilqis Ozigi, Coordinator and Secretary respectively, the decision to shift from the onsite meeting is informed by the current security challenges across the country as well as the rain season. 

The event which will be transmitted live via several media outlets will engage with key stakeholders, including political party candidates, chairmen and chairpersons of parties, traditional rulers, non-state actors and select members of the public.

It will be hosted on the theme: ‘Social Contract, Political Accountability and Constituency Reporting’.

Already, over 40 candidates from six political parties and chairmen have been contacted and mobilized towards the event.

The target is to create a platform and common ground for would-be representatives to learn and share innovative ways on services delivery to the people. It is also an opportunity to connect the representatives and the electorate as a social contract by learning and sharing from the manifestos and mandates. 

Prof. Adam Okene Ahmed, of the National War College, will deliver the keynote address while the Convener and National Coordinator of First National Summit of Political Parties, Dr. Ahmed Badanga and other invited guests will deliver special goodwill messages
