The Gender-Based Security Threat Assessment of 2023 Election in Nigeria: Volume II is a follow up on the Gender-Based Pre-2023 Election Security Threat Assessment in Nigeria: Volume I. It focuses on threats to women participation as women, as voters, candidates, election security officials, observers and election officials in the February 25, Presidential and National Assembly in Nigeria, across the six geopolitical regions of Nigeria between November 2022 and February 2023, which covered the period of electioneering campaigns and the election.
Sustainability leadership is at a turning point. The systemic nature of climate change is clear to see and with it the realisation that the global economy faces an existential threat. The shift to net zero is accelerating, with an emphasis on a just transition that delivers a more resilient and prosperous future. The role and purpose of business in society also is evolving at pace.
More than 60 years after independence, Nigeria still struggles with building an inclusive society. Cries of political marginalisation, which predated independence, have yet to abate. The socio-economic disparity in gender relations remains wide. The low level of inclusion is evident in the unequal power relations and exclusionary processes which have left limited spaces for marginalized groups to participate in the social, political and economic life of the nation. Today’s numerous challenges of terrorism, banditry, rising debt burden, hyperinflation
and other social ills may have somewhat eclipsed discourse on inclusion, but the push to make it a mainstream issue, in the run-up to the 2023 general elections, is no less strident or necessary.
