Dragonfly is hosting an expert briefing on the risk implications of the general election in Nigeria scheduled for 25 February – and our forecasts for the rest of the year.
Nigeria will shortly be heading to polling stations for what will be the most politically consequential vote for the country in several years. But while several clients have asked about the potential for violence before and during the vote, the real challenge for Nigeria is what comes next. Challenges include intensifying insecurity, acute foreign currency shortages and unfavourable global economic conditions.
Drawing on insights from conversations held with a broad range of sources while in Abuja and Lagos, our panel will provide assessments on:
The likelihood of exposure to widespread unrest around the vote
How armed group violence will affect Nigeria in 2023
The implications of a new administration on foreign currency shortages
Our forecast on probable policy changes affecting businesses
The briefing will include an opportunity for you to pose questions to our panel.
