Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo is in the U.S. to deliver a lecture at the Harvard University, Boston, U.S. on “Africa Rising” course at Harvard Business School.
Osinbajo, while at Harvard, would also engage in marathon meetings at the Ivy League school. Harvard described the lecture as a historic moment as it would be the first time that an Africa-focused course would be offered at Harvard Business School.
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 vice president 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, Mr. Osinbajo emphasised the continent’s depth of talent and innovation across Agriculture, ICT, Hospitality, Fashion, Energy, Manufacturing, Entertainment, and many other fields.
The vice president, who will leave for Boston today, is expected back in Abuja later on Wednesday.
