President Bola Tinubu has left Paris, France, and is now heading to London, United Kingdom, according to a statement issued by Mr. Dele Alake, the Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communication, and Strategy.
Initially scheduled to return to Abuja on Saturday, President Tinubu will now embark on a brief private visit to London. Mr. Alake mentioned that the President would be back in the country in time for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir festival.
Following the conclusion of his official trip to Paris, France, on Friday, President Tinubu greatly participated in the summit for ‘A New Global Financing Pact,’ hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron. He not only represented Nigeria effectively at the event but also engaged in significant sideline meetings with fellow heads of state and government, prominent global business leaders, and chief executives of leading multilateral and development finance institutions worldwide.
The summit provided the President with a platform to globally promote his advocacy for expanding the fiscal space, advocating for economic justice for Africa amidst the accelerated pace of energy transition worldwide, and highlighting the urgency of addressing critical issues such as poverty and climate change.
