Tinubu, Obi, Atiku To Appear Before DAWN Commission


The Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN) Commission has perfected plans to hold a parley with the presidential candidates of major political parties for November, 2022 in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The Commission disclosed this in a statement issued by its Director General, Seye Oyeleye, while saying that the idea of the public interactive session with the presidential candidates of the major political parties in the 2023 general elections was informed by the need to allow the candidates’ engagement with critical segments of the Southwest public on their agenda, plans and programmes.

DAWN Commission is the technocratic institution for the sustainable development of Southwest region of Nigeria.

The statement read ” With a population of about 50 million, its historical trajectory as the commercial nerve centre of Nigeria, strategic importance and huge potentials for national growth and development, DAWN is inviting the presidential candidates to outlay how they intend to incorporate Southwest in their agenda for a united, peaceful and prosperous Nigeria with specific attention to the region’s peculiarities.

” DAWN is further moved by the need to prevent the seeming uncertainties in the Nigerian political environment as well as the constant proclivities of political changes, both within the region and the country in general, from getting in the way of sustainable development.

” The strategic intent is to get and dissect the agenda of the candidates, and looking towards a cohesive, coherent and balanced approach to fast-track the development of Nigeria as a strategic nation state 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 an unhindered and unconstrained socio-economic development.
