 Minister Tuggar to represent President Tinubu at US-Africa

President Bola Tinubu will be represented by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar, at the 2024 US-Africa Business Summit in Dallas, Texas, instead of Vice President Kashim Shettima, as previously stated.

This is contained in a statement signed by Shettima’s Spokesperson, Stanley Nkwocha on Monday evening.

“Vice President Kashim Shettima who was originally scheduled to represent the President was unable to make the trip following a technical fault with his aircraft, forcing him to make a detour on the advice of the Presidential Air Fleet,” the statement reads.

According to the statement titled ‘Minister of Foreign Affairs To Now Represent President Tinubu at US-Africa Summit.’ the Vice President has since returned to Abuja and “will carry on with other national duties.”

The high-profile summit, taking place at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, will bring together political and business leaders from across Africa, the United States, and other regions.

African leaders expected at the summit are Presidents Joseph Boakai of Liberia; Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi; Joao Lourenço Angola; Mokgweetsi E. K. Masisi of the Republic of Botswana; José Maria Neves of Cabo Verde and the Deputy Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Lesotho, Nthomeng Majara.
