Ahead of the general elections, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Africa has said it would host governorship debates in 10 states across Nigeria. The debate will be conducted in four languages- Yoruba, Hausa, Igbo and Pidgin. The debate would also enable political candidates vying for different political offices to discuss issues affecting them in their own local language. In a statement sent to PREMIUM TIMES on Tuesday, the BBC said the debate would see political candidates questioned on issues around economy, education, health, Infrastructure and creation of jobs in the country. Oluwatoyosi Ogunseye, the Head of <a href="http://www.bbc.com/news/business-30875633">BBC</a>

SHIAWASSEE COUNTY — A producer from the British Broadcasting Corporation’s New York office is making preliminary arrangements to bring a film crew to Shiawassee County in a few weeks. The purpose of the visit: Shiawassee County is a bellwether community when it comes to presidential elections, picking the winner in 13 out of the 14 past elections, including in 2016 when voters chose Donald Trump. Two years into the Trump presidency, what do business leaders and others think about him now? That’s one of the questions the BBC is seeking to answer. "Obviously, it’s very exciting that somebody from an international news organization wants to come to little Shiawassee County," said Justin Horvath, president/CEO of Shiawassee Economic Development Partnership.
A BBC producer recently reached out to Horvath by email, saying a BBC crew is coming to Detroit later this month to cover the North American International Auto Show, and hoped to take a drive north to Shiawassee County afterward. While details of the visit are still being determined, Horvath has agreed to help. "We’re going to be working with them to set up business meetings," he said. The BBC’s interest in Shiawassee County could be based on a 2016 Michigan Information and Research Service (MIRS) analysis that identified Shiawassee and Van Buren as Michigan’s top county bellwethers for presidential elections. Only in 1976 did both counties fail to choose the national winner, voting for Republican candidate Gerald R. Ford over Democrat Jimmy Carter. Because Michigan voters aren’t required to register their party affiliation, there’s no way to know for sure how many Democrats versus Republicans live in Shiawassee County. However, county leaders have said they believe the political makeup here is roughly split evenly between Republicans and Democrats. "(Shiawassee hasn’t) changed much even though the Democratic vote moved around," Mark Grebner of Practical Political Consultants said in the MIRS report. "(The county hasn’t) become noticeably more Republican or Democratic.
