President Bola Tinubu, originally slated to return to Abuja on Saturday following his trip to Paris, France, has announced a short private visit to London, United Kingdom. The disclosure came from Dele Alake, the Special Adviser for Special Duties, Communications & Strategy to the President, in a statement issued on Saturday.
According to Alake, President Tinubu concluded his official trip to Paris on Friday, where he made an exceptional contribution to the summit on ‘A New Global Financing Pact,’ hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron.
During the summit, President Tinubu showcased Nigeria’s representation with great finesse and engaged in high-level discussions with fellow heads of state and government, influential global business leaders, as well as CEOs of leading multilateral and development finance institutions from across the globe.
The presidency highlighted the significance of the summit, which provided an international platform for President Tinubu to advocate for the expansion of the fiscal space, economic justice for Africa amidst the world’s acceleration towards energy transition, and the pressing need to address poverty and climate change.
“The summit afforded the President the opportunity of projecting, on a global stage, his advocacy for widening the fiscal space, economic justice for Africa as the world accelerates the pace of energy transition, and the urgency of addressing the pressing issues of poverty and climate change,” the presidency stated.
The private visit to London will be a brief one, and President Tinubu is expected to return to Nigeria in time for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir festival, as confirmed by Alake.
President Tinubu’s active participation in international events showcases Nigeria’s commitment to global cooperation and demonstrates the President’s dedication to addressing crucial global challenges.
