H.E. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as Special Guest of Honour – Summit on the state of Democracy in Africa

24 janvier 2023

 

At TrustAfrica, we are pleased to co-organise the Summit on the State of Democracy in Africa, scheduled for 22 May 2024, at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, with H.E. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, as the Special Guest of Honour. The Summit seeks to foster a dialogue that not only addresses the challenges of the African continent but underscores the importance of continental solutions, especially in the face of increasing external influences.

Against the backdrop of the renewed scramble for dominance in Africa by Western, Russian and Chinese interests, and in view of the recent unconstitutional changes in government in some countries, particularly in West Africa, this Summit will facilitate a candid conversation among African leaders about the state of democracy on the continent to provide solutions aimed at arresting the trend of democratic backsliding.

This gathering is not only timely but also a testament to the enduring spirit of Africa Day, as it seeks to foster a dialogue that addresses the challenges of democracy while underscoring the importance of continental solutions. During the gathering, TrustAfrica will lead a session featuring reflections on the state of democracy in Africa from the eyes of young people with stories of how young people are organising to defend, renew, and advance democracy in their countries. This session will be moderated by TrustAfrica’s Programmes Director, Briggs Bomba, with other experts on African youth affairs.
