On January 16, 2018, the Harvard Center for African Studies was honored with a visit from the Nigerian Vice President, H.E. Yemi Osinbajo. The Vice President and his team were received by the Harvard Center for African Studies Oppenheimer Faculty Director, Professor Akyeampong along with CAS faculty affiliates and scholars from other universities in the area. In a roundtable discussion, the Vice President Osinbajo gave brief remarks on the socio-economic developments in Nigeria and expressed optimism about the growing economy in the past year and Professor Akyeampong gave an update on the center's work and how CAS broadens the knowledge of Africa to the Harvard community and beyond. The group had an opportunity to ask questions regarding scholarly exchange between Harvard and Nigeria as well as the importance of the connection to the African continent when thinking about expanding the African Language Program at Harvard. The Vice President Osinbajo then had a tour of CAS' new space and the group enjoyed a casual brunch together in the lounge.
