Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will on Tuesday, January 16, deliver the inaugural, keynote lecture at the university’s “Africa Rising” course at Harvard Business School on the invitation of Harvard University, Boston, United States.
Osinbajo, a law professor, is expected to highlight the efforts made by the Buhari administration in improving the country’s economy and investment climate during the lecture.
Meanwhile, in extending its invitation to the vice president, Harvard University noted that it deeply admired the immense progress that Nigeria has made under the Buhari presidency, including the work of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council, PEBEC.
“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 university said.
The top US university further 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.
Vice President Osinbajo who leaves for Boston today, is expected back in Abuja later on Wednesday.
