The FIDE President promoted the Chess in Schools programme in four countries during May:

Nigeria4Abuja, Nigeria 
Kirsan Ilyumzhinov met with Mr. Asishana Okauru, General Director of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF). Kirsan said: "In my opinion, along with economic problems and poverty reduction in Africa, no less important attention should be paid to the programmes developing children's intelligence. 
The inclusion of chess into the school curriculum will certainly have a positive and lasting effect."
     Following the meeting, the leaders signed a Memorandum of Understanding, under which FIDE and NGF will hold a preparatory event for the signing of the Agreement to promote chess in all 36 provinces of Nigeria. The Agreement should be signed in July.


Kiev, Ukraine
