Guinean President, Alpha Condé, will arrive in Lagos on Tuesday, for a five-day working visit.
President Condé will meet with top Nigerian captains of industry in Lagos in an attempt to lure investments to his mineral-rich country.
He is also expected to hold a private session with the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu. Mr. Conde will attend the presidential inauguration ceremony of Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja on Friday, May.
Mr. Condé became president in December 2010, 30 years after being the arrowhead of the opposition.
In 2011, he enlisted former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, and billionaire philanthropist, George Soros, as unpaid advisers when he sought to assure investors that the country, boasting of the second biggest mining reserves in Africa and fifth biggest in the world, is open for business.
President Condé is also seeking a strategic partnership with Nigeria as he believes in the ideology of ‘Africa for Africans.’
Guinea is the world’s largest producer of bauxite, used for aluminium manufacturing, and boasts of vast iron ore deposits as well as diamonds, gold and uranium, a primary component for producing nuclear energy.
