Lagos - Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, is among the leading global figures to present at next month’s Build Africa Forum.

The event is scheduled for Brazzaville, Congo on February 5-7.

“Governor Sanusi will offer insight into the possibility of an infrastructure bubble in Africa, considering whether it poses a real threat to the continent or is simply a groundless concern,” Julie Voiriot, spokesperson of the organisers stated.

According to Voiriot, Sanusi has played a key role in reviving the sector since he was appointed Governor of the Nigerian Central Bank on in June 2009.

“Less than two months after his appointment, Sanusi led Central Bank’s rescue Afribank, Intercontinental Bank, Union Bank, Oceanic Bank and Finbank. He has been recognised as Central Bank Governor of the Year for Africa. In 2011, TIME magazine recognized Sanusi as one of the 100 most influential people of year.”

Meanwhile, a total of 500 leading policy-makers, investors, developers, and infrastructure operators will gather in Brazzaville for the Build Africa Summit.

The infrastructure event is organized in partnership with the African development Bank’s Africa50 Fund and the World Bank.

Denis Sassou N’Guesso, President of Congo, will be in attendance as well as Vicente Fox, former President of Mexico.
