Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is scheduled to participate in the 2023 Mo Ibrahim Governance Weekend (IGW) in Nairobi, Kenya, which is themed “Global Africa.” The annual forum is organised by the Mo Ibrahim Foundation and focuses on good governance and leadership for Africa. The forum will bring together influential voices from across Africa and beyond to discuss various issues on the continent’s progress.
The Kenyan President, William Ruto, former President of the African Development Bank, Mr Donald Kaberuka, and Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Director-General of the WTO, among others, will also be speaking at the forum.
Osinbajo, as one of the guest speakers, will attend the IGW Africa Leadership opening ceremony on Friday and will speak at the first session on Saturday, where he will join other leaders to discuss the topic “Africa’s Weight in the World, Highlighting the Continent’s Assets and Potentials.”
He is also expected to hold bilateral meetings with Ruto and the British Minister of State for Development and Africa, Andrew Mitchell. The forum is expected to be attended by leaders from Africa and around the world.
