Politico Politica is a show on Nigerian politics. We answer the question—how do Nigerians participate in politics?—by focusing on the major issues around politics: elections, civic participation, dividends of democracy, voter intimidation, godfatherism, and more.
Every episode draws attention to different themes from various perspectives ensuring that all sides are covered. We take the issue by horns, even as we try to solve the puzzle of making Nigeria work. Through this, we also reflect on how every Nigerian can partake in politics.
Politico Politica is hosted by Isabella Akinseye who interviews exciting personalities in the Nigerian political landscape on matters affecting the polity. Divided into five parts—”Topic of the Day” where the guests respond to a certain issue; “Politics and More” where we learn of the guest’s journey into the politics; the “Quick Fire” segment where guests answer short questions; “In Other News” where highlights of political news across the country is shared and “Final Words” where guests speak words that they consider dear to them to the audience.
