The Nigerian Economic Summit Group has rescheduled its 28th summit for one month later.
It announced in a statement that the October summit had been rescheduled for November.
After extensive consultations with key stakeholders, including the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget, and National Planning, the group said it made the difficult decision to reschedule the summit.
It blamed the postponement on “unforeseen circumstances,” and apologized for any inconvenience the rescheduling may cause all stakeholders preparing for the summit.
“The summit will bring together national and global leaders from government, business, politics, development, civil society, and academia to discuss issues in Nigeria’s transition year,” according to the group.
It went on to say that there would be an option to participate virtually.
