The United Bank for Africa (UBA), is set to celebrate African Day with a virtual dialogue on the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
A statement issued by the bank said it observed the AU Day celebration for the past few years with a vibrant and colourful presentation of the African culture.
It said as part of the celebration UBA organises thought leadership sessions to deliberate on important topics that affect the continent.
The topic for this year’s discussion is: ”Domestic Policies, Regional Growth Plans, and A Global Agenda: SDGs & African Development at Crossroads.”
This year’s session will have panelists like Madam Abiola Bawuah (Ghana); Regional CEO, UBA West Africa, and Mr Roland Kwemain (Cameroon); Leadership Coach and Chairman, Go Ahead Africa Limited.
The rest are Mr. Sobel Aziz Ngom (Senegal); Founder and Executive Director, Social Change Factory, and Dr Nalishebo Meebelo (Zambia); Senior Program Coordinator, Regional Network of Agricultural Policy Research Institutes (ReNAPRI).
The statement said Veteran Nigerian Journalist and Media Consultant Eugenia Abu would moderate the event which would be hosted via Zoom and broadcasted live on UBAs YouTube and Facebook feeds due to current global constraints and the need to keep a social distance.
