Baba is back from Turkey and the vice president is on his way to Southern Asia.
Nigeria’s Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo left the country on Sunday on a two-day working visit to the Republic of Indonesia.
His spokesman, Laolu Akande told newsmen that during the visit Osinbajo would address plenary of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) Beneficial Ownership Conference taking place in Jakarta from Oct. 23 to Oct. 24.
EITI is that non-government organization that loves to raise alarm over shady deals in Nigeria, especially in the oil and gas sector.
Professor Osinbajo is expected to speak on a range of issues concerning Nigeria’s extractive industry and general reforms embarked upon by the Buhari administration.
Other dignitaries scheduled to speak at the event include the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo; Minister of National Development Planning in Indonesia, Bambang Brodjonegoro; EITI Chair, Fredrik Reinfeldt.
This year’s conference would focus on using beneficial ownership information to achieve national priorities for the extractive sector and to improve natural resource governance with the theme: “Opening up ownership – sharing practice, building systems”.
It is also expected that the conference also would discuss challenges, provide peer learning and exchange experiences.
