Overview

Under the leadership of the Nigerian National Assembly's Joint Committee on the Review of the 1999 Constitution, hundreds of public consultations have taken place across Nigeria regarding potential amendments to the Constitution. As part of this process Chatham House is hosting an event for UK-based Nigerians to engage with some members of the Committee and contribute to the debate.

The event will be live-streamed here on 27 February from 09.00 GMT. You can join the discussions on Twitter using #CHNigeria.
