Yemi Osinbajo Addresses World Leaders At A Forum In UK


Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the former vice president of Nigeria, addressed world leaders at the inaugural Future Resilience Forum (FRF), which was held in London on October 10, 2023, according Gistlover Professor Osinbajo spoke extensively about collaboration.

Osinbajo asserts that in light of the South’s significant potential for renewable energy and wealth in essential minerals, it is essential for the North and South to work together.

Instead of just trying to gain power and influence over the South, he claimed, this collaboration should be marked by openness and transparency. Osinbajo insisted that failure to adopt this strategy would mean missing a crucial chance to address issues such as climate change, peace, and security on a global scale.

Osinbajo continued, saying that “every day, it is becoming more obvious that what the global south requires is more collaboration, more thinking together, rather than the exertion of influence.”. “.

He claims that the developing world is home to many of the resources required for development along a climate-friendly trajectory, and that these resource-hosting countries now have more options than in the past when it comes to selecting their preferred trading partners.

Other world leaders who attended the Forum included the Prime Minister of the UK, Rishi Sunak; the Presidents of Senegal, Macky Sall; Iraq, Abdul Latif Rashid; William Hague, a former UK Foreign Secretary; the Senior Vice President (Europe) and Head of UK Operations of British Petroleum, Louise Kingham; and the Chairman of the Independent Energy Policy Institute, Narendra Taneja.

According to Gistlover , keynote speeches on the topic of “Resilience of the Global South and Why it Matters” were given by the presidents of Senegal, Macky Sall and the Prime Minister of the UK, Rishi Sunak, on Monday evening, October 9, at the opening of the inaugural Future Resilience Forum. “.

Resilient Systems, Democratic Resilience, Resilient Information Ecosystems, Technology and Accountability, as well as Resilient Food and Health Systems were some of the topics covered in other discussions at the Forum.

The first security conference in the world that prioritizes fostering global resilience is FRF, founded by Fiona Hill. The Forum aspires to promote pragmatist, depoliticized, and long-term cooperation and thinks democracies must expand the definition of success to go beyond election cycles, assisting governments, businesses, and society in understanding the challenges they face from electorates navigating the divisive information age.

At the 10th Anniversary of the Financial Times Africa Summit, which will take place on the 17th of October 2023 in the United Kingdom, Osinbajo is anticipated to moderate a panel discussion on “Navigating the Energy Transition” later in the month.
