Tinubu returns after 10-day ‘working visit’ to Europe

PRESIDENT-elect Bola Tinubu on Saturday, May 20, returned to the country after a working visit to Europe.

The President-elect, who spent about 10 days in Europe, was received at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, by Senate President Ahmad Lawan, vice-president-elect Kashim Shettima, a former governor of Akwa Ibom State Godswill Akpabio, and Kano State governor Abdullahi Ganduje, among others.



    Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s media aide, had prior to the President-elect’s trip told the media that his principal would meet with investors and finetune transition plans.

    “Tinubu hopes to convince them of Nigeria’s readiness to do business under his leadership through mutually-beneficial partnerships premised on jobs creation and skills acquisition.

    “Reviving the country’s economy forms 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 create empowering opportunities for the country’s huge youth population,”Rahman said in a statement released before Tinubu’s trip.

    The former governor of Lagos State is expected to assume office as Nigeria’s President on May 29 when the second term of President Muhammadu Buhari expires.
