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