Vice President Shettima cancels trip to US over faulty aircraft

Vice President of Nigeria, Kashim Shettima, has cancelled his trip to the United State of America and returned to Nigeria.

Shettima was scheduled to attend the 2024 US-Africa Business Summit in Dallas, Texas.

However, in a statement signed by the president’s aide on Media and Communications, Stanley Nkwocha, it was confirmed that the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Yusuf Maitama Tuggar, will now represent President Bola Ahmed Tinubu Summit in Dallas, Texas.

Nkwocha noted that Shettima 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.”

He also added that the Vice President will carry on with other national duties.

Part of the statement also said: “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. It features high-level dialogues, networking sessions, and plenaries.”
