President-elect Bola Tinubu, who returned from a three-nation visit to London, Saudi Arabia, and Paris, left Nigeria for Europe on Wednesday afternoon, two weeks later.
According to Punch, the visit is part of an effort to work with key aides to the president-elect to fine-tune transition plans, programs, and policy options.
According to a statement from the incoming presidential administration signed by Tunde Rahman, the visit was necessary to allow Tinubu to carry out some tasks without unnecessary pressure or distraction.
‘Tinubu will use the visit to fine-tune his transition plans, programs, and policy options with his key aides without unnecessary pressure or distraction.
During his visit, the president-elect will engage with investors and other key allies to showcase the opportunities for investment in the country and the administration’s readiness to create a business-friendly environment through policies and regulations.”
The statement noted that meetings have already been scheduled with multi-sector actors in the European business community, including manufacturing, agriculture, high-tech, and energy.
Tinubu hopes to convince them of Nigeria’s readiness to do business under his leadership through mutually beneficial partnerships premised on job creation and skills acquisition.
This meeting is part of an effort to reaffirm Nigeria’s importance in the global economy and to create opportunities to empower the country’s huge youth population.”
The president-elect has already begun discussions with global stakeholders in key economic and security areas, and this visit reflects that commitment.”
Before leaving the country, Tinubu met with Tajudeen Abbas and Benjamin Kalou, candidates for Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives recommended by his party, the All Progressives Congress, as presented by the Joint Task Team of the House of Representatives.
Rahman added, “I will be returning shortly to prepare for the inauguration of the 16th President on May 29, 2023.”
