According to him, the summit will bring together Heads of State and Government as well as officials and youth leaders, and provide a platform for partners to chart a way forward toward transforming education systems through the exchange of best practices.

“It will also offer the opportunity for leaders to make 5-year pledges to support GPE’s work to help transform education systems in up to 90 countries and territories.

“Deliberations at the Summit will focus on: ‘The Power of Education – A Conversation between Global Champions’; ‘Transforming Education for Girls’; ‘Financing for Impact and Recovery’; and ‘What Now? Priorities for Transforming Education in the Coming Five Years’, among others,’’ Mr. Adesina stated.

He said the Nigerian leader would also hold a bilateral meeting with the British prime minister.

After the summit, Mr. Adesina said, Mr. Buhari will spend a few days to keep a scheduled medical appointment.

“He is due back by the second week of August 2021,’’ the president’s spokesman said.
