On Sunday, December 11, President Muhammadu Buhari will fly to Washington, D.C., to attend the United States-Africa Leaders Summit with other African leaders.
Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President, revealed this in a statement on Saturday.
Shehu explained that the summit was put together by the president of the United States Joe Biden to further devise means of “working with African governments, civil society, diaspora communities across the United States, and the private sector to continue strengthening our shared vision for the future of US-Africa relations”.
The event is anticipated to highlight the importance of US-Africa relations and enhanced cooperation on common global concerns while demonstrating the United States’ unwavering commitment to Africa.
The Summit will also look for more practical ways to foster new economic engagement, advance peace, security, and good governance, reinforce the commitment to democracy, human rights, and civil society, collaborate to strengthen regional and global health security, promote food security, respond to the climate crisis, strengthen diaspora ties, and promote education and youth leadership.
