The invitation was contained in a letter dated October 24, 2022, signed by the President of USAfBC, Scott Eisner, and addressed to Atiku.

In the letter, Eisner proposed that the meeting be held on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce headquarters in Washington, DC.

The letter reads in part, “On behalf of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s U.S.-Africa Business Center (USAFBC), I would like to extend to you an invitation for a bilateral meeting with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s U.S.-Africa Business Center during your visit to the United States.

“We would like to propose the meeting to be held on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce headquarters in Washington, DC. We are happy to consider an alternative date if the proposed date is not suitable.

“Indeed, we would be honored to welcome you for an off-the-record discussion to hear your perspective on how the U.S. corporate community can best support Nigeria’s economic development, especially the opportunities for expanding the economic partnership between our two nations.

“Recognizing the many demands on your schedule, we appreciate your consideration of this invitation.”

The letter also gave a brief about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“As you may know, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the largest business advocacy organization in the world, operating in all 50 states and in over 100 countries to promote free enterprise and advance American trade and investment globally, representing companies of every size and from every sector, working with state and local Chambers and over 100 AmChams around the world, including the American Business Council (ABC) in Nigeria.

“The Chamber’s U.S.-Africa Business Center (USAfBC) is the only institution of its kind representing the interests of both the U.S. and African business community.

“We are vocal advocates for increased bilateral and regional trade with African nations, and we are proud to represent the largest U.S. investors in Nigeria.”

In other news, Kanyi Daily reported that the PDP had said Atiku remains a symbol of national unity and he is a pan-Nigerian leader following his northern comment in Kaduna recently.
