Vice President Yemi Osinbajo departs Abuja early today to participate at the World Liquified Petroleum Gas Association forum in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where he will be delivering the keynote address.
The VP’s visit is coming less than 48 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari returned to Abuja after a four day visit to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
World leaders, top government ministers from several countries and Chief Executives of major multinational corporations in the Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) sectors around the globe will be attending the week-long 2021 World LPG Week from Sunday through Thursday this week under the auspices of the Paris-based World LPG Association.
Prof. Osinbajo, according to a statement by his spokesman Laolu Akande on Monday, will be speaking on Tuesday at the forum, which is attracting over 2,000 delegates from 72 countries, on the theme of the LPG Week – “Energising Tomorrow.”
:The World LGP Week, which first held in Amsterdam in 2019, is an annual event bringing together major LPG companies, senior public sector officials, industry experts and other relevant stakeholders.
“The World LPG Association was established in 1987 and granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council, ECOSOC, in 1989. WLPGA is the umbrella association which globally coordinates the LPG industry.
“Vice President Osinbajo is expected back in Abuja on Thursday,” the statement said.
