Vice-President Kashim Shettima has embarked on a journey to Dallas, United States, to attend the 2024 US-Africa Business Summit, organized by the Corporate Council on Africa.

The summit, slated to be held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, will bring together political and business leaders from Africa, the United States, and beyond for extensive discussions, networking opportunities, and plenaries.


Shettima is expected to participate in various sessions, including the Roundtable on African Infrastructure Investment and a plenary session on Navigating Africa’s Energy Future.

Additionally, he will contribute to a high-level panel on agribusiness, focusing on transitioning “from food insecurity to thriving agribusinesses”. Furthermore, he will chair a session promoting the ‘Invest in Nigeria’ initiative and engage in other meetings and activities on the sidelines of the summit.

Meanwhile, concerns have risen regarding the whereabouts of President Bola Tinubu, who has not returned to Nigeria since attending the World Economic Forum’s (WEF’s) Special Meeting on Global Collaboration, Growth, and Energy for Development in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Tinubu’s absence, now lasting six days, has sparked speculation, with some suggesting he may have proceeded to Paris, France, for medical reasons.

However, credible sources have indicated that the president traveled to London from Riyadh.

While the Presidency has not officially commented on the matter, a highly placed official confirmed Tinubu’s presence in London on a private visit.

Another official assured the public that there is no cause for alarm, affirming that the president will return to the country over the weekend.

Tinubu’s recent official visit to the Kingdom of the Netherlands was characterized by engagements with Prime Minister Mark Rutte, as well as meetings with His Royal Majesty, King Willem-Alexander, and Queen Maxima. The visit also included participation in the Nigerian-Dutch Business and Investment Forum, aimed at fostering collaboration and partnerships, particularly in agriculture and water management, for sustainable farming practices.
