President-elect Bola Tinubu Embarks on Working Visit to Europe Ahead Of Swearing In

The President-elect of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu, has embarked on a working visit to Europe, two weeks after returning from a trip to London, Saudi Arabia, and Paris. In a statement signed by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu intends to use the opportunity to finetune the transition plans and programs, and his policy options with some of his key aides without unnecessary pressures and distractions.

During the visit, Bola Tinubu aims to engage with investors and other key allies with the goal of marketing investment opportunities in the country and his administration’s readiness to enable a business-friendly climate through policies and regulations. Meetings with multi-sectoral actors in Europe’s business community, including manufacturing, agriculture, tech, and energy, have been lined up to showcase Nigeria’s readiness to do business under his leadership through mutually-beneficial partnerships premised on job creation and skills acquisition.

Tinubu’s Renewed Hope agenda prioritizes reviving the country’s economy and the meeting is part of his efforts to re-establish Nigeria’s importance in the global economic chain and create empowering opportunities for the country’s huge youth population. Before leaving the country, Tinubu met with the House of Representatives candidates for Speaker and Deputy Speaker 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.

As the 16th President of Nigeria, Tinubu is expected to return shortly for preparations for his official swearing-in on May 29, 2023. Tinubu’s commitment to hitting the ground running is reflected in his efforts to engage with global actors in the important areas of the economy and security. With his focus on a business-friendly climate and partnerships that prioritize job creation and skills acquisition, Tinubu hopes to make Nigeria an attractive destination for investors and drive economic growth in the country.
