Why Shettima Will Not Participate At The US-Africa Submit

Afor Kenneth 

Vice President Kashim Shettima, initially set to represent President Bola Tinubu at the 2024 US-Africa Business Summit organized by the Corporate Council on Africa, faced an unexpected detour.

The summit, slated from May 6 to May 9, 2024, aimed to gather political and business leaders from Africa, the United States, and beyond for high-level dialogues and networking sessions.

However, due to a technical issue with the VP’s aircraft, as disclosed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Communications, Stanley Nkwocha, on Monday, plans had to be adjusted. Following the advice of the Presidential Air Fleet managers, Vice President Shettima had to change course.

In his stead, Ambassador Yusuf Maitama Tuggar, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, will now represent President Bola Tinubu at the summit.

”The Vice President will carry on with other national duties,” the statement read.

The prestigious summit at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center will unite political and business luminaries from Africa, the United States, and beyond. It promises engaging high-level discussions, networking opportunities, and impactful plenary sessions.

”Among the African heads of state expected are President Joseph Boakai of Liberia, President Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi, President Joao Lourenço of Angola, President Mokgweetsi E.K. Masisi of Botswana, President José Maria Neves of Cabo Verde, and Deputy Prime Minister Nthomeng Majara of Lesotho.”

”The US-Africa Businesshol Summit aims to foster economic cooperation and explore investment opportunities between the United States and African countries.”
