Osinbajo To 'Beg' Foreign Investors At Oxford University Today
President Muhammadu Buhari’s hunt for foreign investments continues even as existing ones leave the country in droves.
The President’s representative including his ministers and the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo had before now visited several countries including the US to ask foreign investors to come and invest.
On Friday, Professor Osinbajo will be at Oxford University, United Kingdom, to deliver a lecture.
He is expected to woo investors by highlighting ongoing investments and plans of the Nigerian government on human development.
The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice-President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists on Thursday.
Akande said at the event, Osinbajo would also inaugurate the International Advisory Board of Oxford University’s African Studies Centre, under the School of Global and Area Studies.
He stated that members of the board were eminent leaders from across the world, including several African countries like Nigeria and South Africa.
Akande said Osinbajo would be received in London by Oxford University’s Pro-Vice Chancellor and Warden, St Antony’s College, Prof. Roger Goodman; Head, Oxford School of Global and Area Studies, Tim Powers; and the Director of the African Studies Centre, Prof. Wale Adebanwi.
He added, “During the lecture, Prof. Osinbajo will highlight the progress made by the Buhari administration in improving the country’s human capital development indices and investment climate, as well as the widespread impact of the National Social Investment Programmes.”
