The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki is set to deliver the keynote address at the 2024 Oxford Africa Conference, scheduled to hold between May 24 and 25, 2024, in the United Kingdom.




The governor will, at the conference hosted by the Oxford University Africa Society, speak on the theme, ‘Unlocking Africa’s Potential: The Power of Public-Private Partnerships.’




He will be sharing his unique approach to governance, leveraging public-private partnerships, and the extensive impact it has made on the development of Edo State over the last seven years.




In a letter of invitation signed by the President of Oxford University Africa Society, Isatou Bokum, the University said Obaseki’s unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities inherent in Africa’s development journey is highly sought after and will undoubtedly enrich the intellectual depth of discussions at the conference.



He noted, “Over the past decade, the Oxford Africa Conference, hosted by the Oxford University Africa Society (AfriSoc), has become a flagship event on the African calendar. It is a dynamic platform for students and global leaders to engage in impactful discussions on the continent’s future.



“Distinguished speakers have consistently contributed invaluable insights, leaving a lasting imprint on Africa’s developmental landscape. In our quest for growth and innovation, the 2024 conference proudly introduces the theme, “Charting Africa’s Path Forward: A Journey of Possibilities.”




“This carefully chosen theme reflects our enduring commitment to Africa’s development and our deep-rooted partnership with stakeholders across the continent and in the Diaspora.





“Your visionary leadership and transformative initiatives in Edo State, Nigeria, deeply resonate with the conference theme.


We believe that sharing your unique approach to governance, leveraging public-private partnerships, and the extensive impact it has made on the development of Edo State over the last seven years will add significant value to this year’s Oxford Africa Conference.”





Governor Obaseki’s remarkable accomplishments in steering Edo State towards socio-economic development make you a beacon of success and inspiration for aspiring leaders. His unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities inherent in Africa’s development journey is highly sought after and will undoubtedly enrich the intellectual depth of our discussions.”



The governor will on the sidelines of the event join a cohort of Nigerian students at a special ‘Dean’s Lunch’ at the University of Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government.


The lunch discussion is scheduled for Thursday, 23 May 2024 between 12:30 to 2:00 pm.



According to the Dean of Blavatnik School of Government, Prof. Ngaire Woods, “We would be keen to learn from your experience as a transformative leader in Nigeria’s public service and how you have pioneered many firsts in Edo State.


You have shown in your time as Governor a commitment to building meaningful private-public partnerships, reforming the state’s education system and digital transformation amongst other great achievements.



“Our students would love an opportunity to learn from you on how you have navigated Nigeria’s political terrain to achieve these great successes.


Our students know that to make a difference they will need resilience, courage, and maturity of judgement. In them, you will find a group of purposeful future leaders burning with ideas, energy and optimism – for the future of Nigeria, and the future of the world.”
