Transforming Nigeria: The Platform Returns with a Special Edition This Democracy Day


Lately, being a Nigerian tends to feel like a rollercoaster. From the skyrocketing cost of goods, to
the exchange rate hitting over N1,500 to a dollar, to electricity grids collapsing every Eke Market
Day, you must ask, is there ever going to be a way out? Right now, nothing is more important to
the average Nigerian than building economic stability. No doubt, Nigerians have significant work
to do in improving their economic prosperity. But the question is, how far can you go on this
journey alone?

This Democracy Day, The Platform, Nigeria’s foremost thought-leadership conference returns
with an edition to discuss the connection between democracy and the free market economy.
This sounds like stuff for economists, but in simple terms, Democracy means people have the
power to choose their leaders and make decisions together, while a free market economy
means businesses can operate freely with little government interference, allowing competition
and consumer choice.

Come June 12th, The Platform will hold its 36th edition in Lagos. This is a globally-anticipated
event where you’ll get to learn from accomplished political and business leaders. This edition is
tagged: Democracy and the Free Market Economy. It will be an avenue of idea exchange for
forward-thinking Nigerians.
