Over the years, The Economist Events’ Nigeria Summit has charted a country in the process of great transition. The year 2015 was particularly significant with the country making history in its presidential elections and experiencing its first democratic power transfer. Nine months on from President Buhari taking office, The 2016 Nigeria Summit will bring key government ministries, industry and business leaders as well as representatives of Nigerian civil society; together with international investors, economists and academics to discuss and debate what the future holds for Nigeria. Join the conversation @EconomistEvents #NigeriaSummit.
