2023 : Nigerians in U.S. to hold presidential debate for Atiku, Peter Obi, Tinubu, Others

A debate for each presidential candidate running on February 25, 2023, presidential elections is planned by Nigerians residing in the United States.  

The presidential discussion, dubbed “The Diaspora Listens,” will take place online on November 26 according to a statement released on Sunday by the organizing committee and signed by Olayinka DanSalami.  

The debate organized by the Organization for the Advancement of Nigerians (OAN, Inc.) in conjunction with 15 more Nigerian partner organizations in the United States.  

Mr DanSalami said the presidential candidates had invited to attend the debate. 

“The United States hosts one of the largest numbers of Nigerian citizens and associations worldwide. They are critical to the political and socio-economic development of our dear country, in spite of the differences in cultures and languages,” the statement explained. “We are also continuing to fly the Nigerian flag high as we excelled in our various endeavors.”

It added, “Thus, we believe that to actualise the Nigeria of our dream, everyone must contribute his or her own quota. We believe that the 2023 presidential election is a critical and consequential election that has generated so much enthusiasm, interest, and support among the Nigerian compatriots in the diaspora.” 

Mr DanSalami noted that the election had brought about” a patriotic clamor by Nigerians in the diaspora to have the presidential candidates talk to us.”” 

He also mentioned that the debate would help keep Nigerians in the diaspora abreast of the candidates’ manifestos. 

He further stated that the event would enable Nigerians in the diaspora to have an opportunity to hear first-hand from the presidential candidates, their intentions and aspirations. 

The ‘Diaspora Listens’ event would also allow candidates to hear directly from the diaspora constituents about their concerns, priorities, and what they would like from the president when elected in 2023. 

“The organisers encourage all our Nigerians in the diaspora to ‘save the date’ for this crucial and important event,” the debate organisers stated. “We would apprise you of the format of the debates as we confirm participation from the presidential candidates.”
