Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement on Monday said in extending its invitation to the Vice President, the university noted that it deeply admired the immense progress that Nigeria had made under the present administration, including the work of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council.
“It would be the highest honour for us were you to accept our invitation as we deeply admire the immense progress that Nigeria has made during your tenure not only as the country’s Vice President, but also as Chairman of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council.
“By all accounts, this Council has spearheaded crucial initiatives and we very much hope that you will speak to those, as well as to Nigeria’s rise in world economic rankings and the vast range of business initiatives that are ongoing in your country,” Akande quoted the university as saying.
He further quoted the university as further describing the lecture as a historic moment as it would be the first time that an Africa-focused course would be offered at Harvard Business School.
Akande said, during the lecture, Osinbajo would highlight the progress made by the present administration in improving the country’s economy and investment climate.
The Vice President, who is scheduled to leave for Boston on Monday, is expected back in Abuja later on Wednesday.
