Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will on Monday depart Abuja for Monrovia, the Liberian capital, to attend the ‘Emerging Young Leaders Forum’, where he is the special guest of honour.

This is according to a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, titled ‘Osinbajo features today in Monrovia at emerging young leaders’ forum.’

Osinbajo’s one-day visit is at the invitation of his Liberian counterpart, Dr. Jewel Howard-Taylor, who is marking her 60th birthday January 17.

At the forum tagged ‘Conversation with the Vice President and Young People’, Osinbajo and other West African leaders will interact with a selected group of 400 emerging leaders “sharing their growth, struggles, attainment, accomplishments and secrets,” according to information from the Office of the Liberian Vice President.

Afterwards, he will hold bilateral talks with President George Weah of Liberia.

Vice President Osinbajo will be accompanied by the Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory, Ramatu Aliyu and the Special Adviser to the President on Social Investment, Mariam Uwais.

The VP is expected back in Abuja later on Monday.

This will be Osinbajo’s second trip to Liberia in 11 months.

In February 2022, he represented the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the formal launch of the year-long commemoration of the country’s bicentennial anniversary.

While Osinbajo departs Abuja Monday morning, Buhari is scheduled to leave Abuja for Nouakchott, the Mauritanian capital on Monday afternoon.

It will be the fourth time in five months that both leaders are out of the country at the same time.

Both principal officers have so far embarked on over 125 foreign trips, visiting at least 66 countries during their tenure.
