BBC Africa Hosts Language Debates for 10 Gubernatorial Elections

BBC Africa will hold 10 language debates across Nigeria in Hausa, Igbo, Pidgin and Yoruba.

People will be able to debate the issues that matter to them in their own language. The debates will ask candidates questions around the following areas and will be based around the theme of building impactful governance.

  • Economy
  • Education
  • Health
  • Infrastructure
  • Jobs

Oluwatoyosi Ogunseye, Head of BBC West Africa says:

“By conducting the debates in local languages, we aim to engage audiences, clarify the issues and further bridge the gap between candidates and the electorate. It brings governance closer to the people.”

Hosted by a key moderator, audiences will be able to pose their questions directly to each
candidate.

Audiences can join the conversation by following the action using #BBGovDebate via each services: website facebook and Instagram page and via BBC partners.
