On Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari will leave for Senegal to attend the second Dakar International Conference on Agriculture.
The theme of the high-level Dakar 2 Summit, which is being hosted by President Macky Sall of Senegal and the African Union Chairperson, is “Feeding Africa: Food Sovereignty and Resilience.”
The African Development Bank and the Senegalese government are hosting the conference, which aims to foster the conditions necessary for achieving food security in Africa.
Aside discussions will also be held to talk about arrangements for the distribution of food and agricultural products in several nations, notably Nigeria.
The Summit, which will be attended by African Heads of State and Government, Ministers of Finance and Agriculture, as well as several international development partners, is expected to make commitments on eradicating hunger in Africa by 2030. Africa is home to 249 million, or one-third of the world’s 828 million hungry people.
Members of the president’s delegation include ministers and senior government figures such as Geoffrey Onyeama, the minister of foreign affairs, Mohammad Abubakar, the minister of agriculture and rural development, Babagana Monguno, the national security adviser, and Ahmed Abubakar, the director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).
On Wednesday, January 25, President Buhari is anticipated to return to the country.
