Shettima Steps Up: Set to Take Center Stage at UN, Russia-Africa Summits

The Vice President of Nigeria, Senator Kashim Shettima, has been selected to represent President Bola Tinubu at two major international summits. He will be attending the United Nations Food Systems Summit in Rome, Italy, and the Russia-Africa Summit in St. Petersburg, Russia. Shettima is set to depart from Abuja on Sunday, accompanied by senior government officials from various ministries.

At the United Nations Food Systems Summit in Rome, the Vice President will join other global leaders for the first Stocktaking Moment (STM) Summit. The theme of this year’s summit is “Transforming Food Systems for People, Planet and Prosperity.” The summit is scheduled to take place from Monday, July 24th to Wednesday, July 26th. Shettima will chair a high-level session focused on “Innovative Financing for Food System Transformation: the Case of Nigeria.” He will also participate in a side event discussing the scaling up of multi-stakeholder collaboration and investment in the implementation of food system transformation pathways in Nigeria.

The United Nations Food Systems Summit is being organized in collaboration with several Rome-based UN agencies, including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and the World Food Programme (WFP), as well as the UN Food Systems Coordination Hub and the wider UN system.

After the Rome event, Shettima will proceed to St. Petersburg, Russia for the Russia-Africa Summit on Wednesday, July 26. This summit aims to enhance relations between Russia and the African continent. The Vice President will be actively involved in activities such as strategizing and participating in bilateral meetings with representatives of relevant Russian senior government officials and business leaders to discuss the relations between Russia and Nigeria.

The Vice President is expected to return to Nigeria at the end of the week, accompanied by senior government officials from Ministries, Departments, and Agencies who are attending the summits.
