Vice President Kashim Shettima is currently meeting a delegation of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group(NESG) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The Chairman of the NESG Board of Directors, Olaniyi Yusuf, led the delegation to the meeting which began at 11:30 am.
The courtesy visit is also aimed to, among other things, notify the VP of the 29th Nigerian Economic Summit which will be held on October 23-24, 2023, and to invite him to give the closing address of the Summit.
Tuesday’s discussion will also feature possible areas of collaboration between the NESG and the Office of the Vice President and National Economic Council on strategic presidential priorities and initiatives.
