Unilever Africa President, Mr. Bruno Witvoet, has said that the company is committed to actively contribute to the economy and growth of the manufacturing sector in Nigeria. He said this when the management of the company visited Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, where he told the governor that the company was ready to enhance the growth of the manufacturing sector to help grow the country’s economy. Witvoet commended the development strategy of the Governor of Kaduna State in ensuring the state is inclusive in economic growth and socio-economic transformation which translates into substantial improvements in the quality of lives of Kaduna citizens.

The African Union (AU) has resolved that European Union (EU) will henceforth no longer negotiate with any individual African country but with the union as a body. The Nigerian Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, stated this in Abuja while addressing newsmen on the outcome of the 28th AU Summit of Head of States and Government. "AU is saying henceforth if EU was going to negotiate, it should only negotiate with the union. "But if any of the EU member countries wants to negotiate with any African country individually that is acceptable, but not EU as a block to negotiate with any African country,” he said.
