Tinubu leaves Paris for London on private visit
President Bola Tinubu on Saturday departed France for London. This was disclosed in a statement by Tinubu's special Adviser on special duties, communications and strategy, Dele Alake. Tinubu had on Friday concluded his official trip to Paris, France, during which he had an outstanding participation in the summit for 'A New Global Financing Pact' hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron. The summit afforded Tinubu 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 Nigerian leader, who was initially scheduled to be back in Abuja on Saturday, will now proceed to London, United Kingdom, for a short private visit. Tinubu will be back to Nigeria in time for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir festival.
