Special AU envoy Raila Odinga during visit to Nigeria

African Union's High Representative for Infrastructure Development Raila Odinga on Tuesday held talks concerning ICT applications in elections in Africa.

The ODM party leader engaged a number of former presidents during the meeting that was held in Ogun State, Nigeria.

Some of those who were present at the meeting include former Presidents Olesegun Obasanjo (Nigeria), John Mahama (Ghana) and Ernest Koroma (Sierra Leonne).

The ODM party leader explained that he and the former presidents were part of the working group discussing measures that could be taken to mitigate the disruptive uses of ICT.

Special envoy of the AU Chairperson

Raila's role at the AU affords him the opportunity to travel across the continent as a statesman.

He has an office at the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa, as well as a fully furnished office in Nairobi.

He was appointed to the position in October 2018 by AU Commission Chairman Moussa Faki who praised him for his “rich political experience and strong commitment to the ideals of Pan-Africanism and African integration, as well as a deep knowledge of infrastructure development."
