The President is expected to join other heads of state and government at the golden jubilee commemorations which are being held under the theme: 'Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance'.

African leaders will deliberate on various issues and the outcome of the discussions will be used to develop Africa's agenda for the next 50 years which will serve as the blueprint of the continent's future.

The golden jubilee celebrations are premised on the principles of pan-Africanism championed by Africa's founders.

The AU golden jubilee celebrations will be held from the 24th to the 27th of May in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
