For a six-day official visit to New Delhi, India, President Bola Tinubu has arrived. He will be there to attend the G20 Leaders’ Summit and other events.
Top government officials, including ministries and presidential aides, accompanied Tinubu on the trip.
The G20 Summit is set to take place between September 9 and September 10. The president is anticipated to attend.
Tinubu will meet with the Nigerian community in India and hold high-level talks with other international leaders and business executives in the run-up to the submission.
Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the President’s Special Advisor on Media and Publicity, had previously said that Tinubu planned to utilize the trip to entice foreign investment to Nigeria.
Leading businesspeople from the Indian and Nigerian private sectors, as well as senior government representatives from both nations, will attend the CEO Roundtable.
”The President wants to use this platform to draw in foreign investment and encourage more of it in Nigeria’s core labor-intensive industries so that more jobs and money can be generated.
Additionally, he will take advantage of the occasion to emphasize Nigeria’s allure as a location for foreign investment, specifically by articulating his cross-sectoral reform strategy as embodied by the Renewed Hope Agenda.
Leading businesspeople have requested separate individual sessions with the President during the conference because of his well-known success in luring investment to Lagos State.
”Additionally, the President will have bilateral talks with a variety of international leaders from four separate continents who are both G-20 and non-G20 members. These interactions aim to improve the mutually beneficial bilateral economic, trade, and investment partnerships.
“The Nigerian leader is anticipated to present Nigeria’s viewpoint on the G20 Summit’s theme, “One Earth-One Family-One Future,” which speaks to the need for international cooperation to confront the challenges facing humanity and the environment.
Ngelale further stated that the summit would be used by the nation to investigate the advantages of joining the G20.
“While it is ideal for Nigeria to be a member of the G-20, the government has started a wide-ranging consultation process to determine the advantages and hazards of membership.
This is in line with the President’s ambition to democratically democratize foreign policy and articulate policy formation and implementation through a Whole-of-Society and Whole-of-Government strategy that advances the country’s long-term strategic goals.
“The government will determine whether or not to seek to join as necessary when discussions are complete. President Tinubu’s attendance at the G-20 Summit in India will help to achieve this goal, according to Ngelale.
The conference will end, and the president will leave straight for Nigeria.
