Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will be representing President Muhammadu Buhari at the state funeral for former President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe on Saturday.

Prof. Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, confirmed the Vice President’s attendance in a statement on Friday.

Osinbajo will be joining other African leaders and heads
of state expected at the occasion scheduled for the country’s National Stadium
in Harare.

Heads of state expected to attend the funeral include President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa and President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya.

Mugabe, who was Zimbabwean Prime Minister and later
President for 37 years altogether, up until 2017, died last week at the age of
95 in a Singaporean Hospital.

The Vice President, accompanied on the trip by senior
government officials, would be leaving for Harare Friday and is expected back
in Nigeria later on Saturday.
