About 48 hours to the commencement of the most anticipated event, no fewer than 13 heads of state and more than 1000 delegates from across the globe are billed to participate at the  World Economic Forum on Africa (WEFA) slated to hold at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja,  between May 7 and 9, 2014.

One of the major highlights of the global event is the launch of a "Safe Schools Initiative' for the North-east by Africa's richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, and the Chairman, Editor-in-Chief of THISDAY Newspapers, Prince Nduka Obaigbena, among others.

WEF's Director and Head of Africa Region, Ms. Elsie Kanza, who made the disclosure at a pre-event briefing in Abuja Monday, said the figure was one of the highest after many years of  hosting the event  in different countries of the world.

"We are expecting over a thousand participants from  over 70 countries, more than half will come from African countries and many will come from the business communities, NGOs (non governmental organisations) and religious groups,'' she said.

In an earlier televised interview the Minister of Finance and coordinating Minister of the economy Prof. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala have assured the international community and participants of the WEF of preparations to ensure maximum security for them as they prepare to come to Nigeria for this Epoch making event.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
