He acknowledged Nigeria’s commitment to Africa’s leadership and development, emphasising the country’s notable contributions despite facing its own challenges.

Kabarebe highlighted Nigeria’s influence through soft-power diplomacy and the impact of literary figures like Chinua Achebe, Soyinka, and Ekwensi, asserting that they played a crucial role in projecting Nigeria as a global player.

Recognising the significant gap between African countries and their development goals, Kabarebe pledged the Ministry’s commitment to strengthen cooperation with Nigeria through the TAC Scheme.

The visit also provided an opportunity for Buba to acquaint himself with state officials and stakeholders in the TAC Scheme, following his recent appointment by Nigeria’s President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
