Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday left Abuja for London to deliver a public lecture today at the King’s College as part of the school’s annual Africa Week 2023 events.
His spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement on Sunday, said as a political and thought leader from Africa, Osinbajo’s lecture would focus on the question of how Africa can prosper in an increasingly complex world.
He said the vice president, who was invited, would be hosted as a special guest by the King’s College Africa Leadership Centre (ALC) and would confer with top officials of the prestigious institution ahead of his lecture which is expected to follow the theme of King’s College Africa Week 2023, “Changing Africa in a Shifting Global Landscape.”
“The King’s College London which was founded by King George IV and the Duke of Wellington in 1829 became one of the two founding colleges of the University of London when the university was established later in 1836.
“Africa Week is an annual celebration of research, education and outreach activities on Africa. It brings together academics, researchers and students offering an opportunity to hear from African scholars, leaders and thinkers,” the statement read.
The vice president is expected back later in the week.
