Breaking: From France, Tinubu heads to UK

After participating during the just concluded Financial summit in Paris, France, Nigeria’s President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has proceeded to London, United Kingdom, for a brief private visit.

This was disclosed in a statement by his special Adviser on Special Duties, Communication and Strategy, Dele Alake, on Saturday.

“Aside his participation at the event where he represented Nigeria well, President Tinubu also held high-profile sideline meetings with fellow heads of state and government, global business leaders and chief executives of leading multilateral and development finance institutions from around the world.

“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.

“President Tinubu, who was initially scheduled to be back in Abuja on Saturday, will now proceed to London, United Kingdom, for a short private visit.

“The President will be back in the country in time for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir festival,” the statement said.
