Osinbajo to attend Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in London

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will on Saturday depart Abuja for London to represent Nigeria at a number of events on Sunday and Monday, including the State funeral for Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.

“Prof. Osinbajo departs Abuja today and will join members of the Royal Family, world leaders – including members of the Commonwealth, Heads of State, Governors-General, Prime Ministers, and foreign royal families – at the ceremonies, including the funeral service scheduled to hold at Westminster Abbey on Monday,” a statement signed by the VP’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, read on Saturday.

Queen Elizabeth II, 96, passed away on September 8, 2022 at the Balmoral Castle in Scotland, the United Kingdom.

Until her demise, she was the Head of the Commonwealth and the longest serving British monarch, reigning for 70 years.
