The Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Yusuf Maitama Tuggar, has been appointed to represent President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the prestigious 2024 US-Africa Business Summit in Dallas, Texas.

The summit will feature high-level dialogues, networking sessions, and plenaries aimed at promoting economic cooperation and exploring investment opportunities between the United States and African countries.

Among the esteemed African heads of state expected to grace the event are President Joseph Boakai of Liberia, President Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi, President Joao Lourenço of Angola, President Mokgweetsi E.K. Masisi of Botswana, President José Maria Neves of Cabo Verde, and Deputy Prime Minister Nthomeng Majara of Lesotho.
