Financing Africa Summit not postponed – Presidency counters rumours
The Presidency has denied reports that the African Finance Summit which President Muhammadu Buhari travelled to attend has been postponed.
Recall that Buhari departed Abuja, Nigeria for France on Sunday to attend the summit hosted by President Emmanuel Macron.
The summit hopes to review the African economy, following shocks from the COVID-19 pandemic and getting relief, especially from the increased debt burden placed on countries by the outbreak.
Buhari and some Heads of Government will collectively, discuss external funding and debt treatment for Africa and private sector reforms.
However, a report had claimed that the Africa-France summit, was postponed to October due to travel constraints linked to COVID-19.
But Bashir Ahmed, a Personal Assistant to Buhari on New Media, countered the claims, explaining that the summit which was postponed is different from the Financing Africa Summit Buhari which the President travelled for.
