VP Yemi Osinbajo to deliver historic lecture at Harvard University today

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will today deliver a keynote lecture at the Harvard University, Boston, United States. A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, said invitation is based on the progress the Buhari-led administration has made so far.
“It would be the highest honour for us were you to accept our invitation as we deeply admire the immense progress that Nigeria has made during your tenure not only as the country’s Vice President, but also as Chairman of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council. By all accounts, this Council has spearheaded crucial initiatives and we very much hope that you will speak to those, as well as to Nigeria’s rise in world economic rankings and the vast range of business initiatives that are ongoing in your country.” the statement from the University read
The university  described the lecture as a historic moment as it would be the first time that an Africa-focused course will be offered at Harvard Business School.
“During the lecture, Prof. Osinbajo would highlight the progress made by the Buhari administration in improving the country’s economy and investment climate. In the latest World Bank Doing Business index, Nigeria climbed up 24 places and was placed on the list of 10 most reformed economies globally. Alongside the President, the VP has been a strong advocate in the future of a greater Africa, and has proffered solutions on how to make the continent work better for its people and the rest of the world. In a keynote address at the Financial Times Africa Summit in London recently, the Vice President emphasised the continent’s depth of talent and innovation across Agriculture, ICT, Hospitality, Fashion, Energy, Manufacturing, Entertainment, and many other fields.”Laolu said
The Vice President is expected back in Abuja tomorrow.
