Tinubu Leaves France For ‘Private Visit’ To London

President Bola Tinubu has departed France for London on a “short private visit”.

On Tuesday, the president travelled to France for a global financial pact summit.

The president was earlier scheduled to be back in the country today.

In a statement, Dele Alake, his special adviser on communications and strategy, said Tinubu will be back in the country in time for the Eid-el-Kabir festival.

Alake said the president had “an outstanding participation in the summit”.

“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,” he said.

“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.”
