Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Tinubu, left for Europe on working visit
On Wednesday, Nigeria’s President-elect, Bola Tinubu, left for Europe on a working visit.
This is going to happen. He returned to the country two weeks after visiting London, Saudi Arabia, and Paris.
This was stated in a statement signed by Tunde Rahman, his media aide.
According to the statement, Tinubu will use the trip to fine-tune transition plans and programs, as well as his policy options, with some of his key aides without undue pressures and distractions.
During his visit, the President-elect will meet with investors and other key allies to promote investment opportunities in the country as well as his administration’s readiness to create a business-friendly environment through policies and regulations.
“Meetings with multi-sectoral actors in Europe’s business community, including manufacturing, agriculture, technology, and energy, have already been scheduled,” according to the statement.
“Through mutually beneficial partnerships based on job creation and skill acquisition, Aswáj Tinubu hopes to persuade them of Nigeria’s readiness to do business under his leadership.”
“Revitalizing the country’s economy is a major plank of Tinubu’s Renewed Hope agenda, and the meeting is part of his efforts to re-establish Nigeria’s importance in the global economic chain and to create empowering opportunities for the country’s massive youth population.”
“The President-elect has previously promised to hit the ground running, and this visit reflects his commitment to that promise, as he has already begun discussions with key global actors in the important areas of the economy and security.”
“Before leaving the country, Aswáj Tinubu met with the candidates for Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives endorsed by his party, the All Progressives Congress, Hon. Tajudeen Abbas and Hon. Benjamin Kalu, who were presented to him by the Joint Task Team of the House.”
Tinubu, a former Lagos State governor, is expected to return “shortly” to begin preparations for his official inauguration as the country’s 16th President on May 29, 2023.
