Launch of the Annual Report of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Nigeria
John Robertson MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Nigeria
At the launch of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Nigeria (APPG) 2009 annual report, John Robertson MP will discuss where Nigeria is today in terms of its development and democracy, its prospects in this difficult economic period, and key issues such as electoral reform, looking to the 2011 elections.
Since the establishment of the APPG in 2004 (originally the Parliamentary Group on the Niger Delta) the Group has sent four delegations to visit Nigeria and has had numerous meetings at Westminster on issues relating to the country. The Group aims to raise the profile of Nigeria in the UK and to support Nigeria's development and democratic transition.
