Buhari Leaves For Nairobi, Kenya


President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, left for Nairobi, Kenya, to attend the 6th Tokyo International Conference on African Development, TICAD VI.

This was disclosed in a message on the president’s official twitter handle @NGRPresident.

TICAD is a conference held regularly with the objective “to promote high-level policy dialogue between African leaders and development partners.”

This will be the first time TICAD is being held in Africa since its inception in 1993; all previous 5 editions were held in Japan.



    The decision to host TICAD VI Summit in Africa was reached during the TICAD V Summit in 2013 when it was agreed that the venue of subsequent TICAD Summits should be alternated between Japan and Africa.

    The interval of summit Meetings was also shortened from 5 years to 3 years.

    Various side events such as seminars/symposiums, exhibitions and business forum have been scheduled to run immediately before and during the Summit.

    The Conference will hold from August 27 to 28.
