President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is scheduled to meet with UAE leadership during a technical stop in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, after departing from New Delhi, India.
The announcement was made by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, in a statement on Sunday.
Ngelale stated that this meeting follows recent discussions between the UAE Ambassador and President Tinubu at the State House in Abuja and aims to address specific issues within the bilateral relationship.
The meeting between Tinubu and leaders of the Gulf nation is intended to address ongoing bilateral matters and promote his investment objectives with high-level authorities in both the public and private sectors of the UAE.
This meeting comes after President Tinubu’s participation in the G-20 Summit and a successful investment campaign in India, where pledges of nearly $14 billion were secured in various sectors, including pharmaceuticals, power, petrochemicals, and agriculture.
Ngelale disclosed that President Tinubu is expected to return to Abuja immediately after the bilateral engagement.
Tinubu had departed Nigeria since Monday last week alongside four ministers and several private sector owners in the country to participate in the G-20 summit in India.
Among the big news that came from the summit is that the African Union, AU, is now a permanent member of the bloc. Before now, the European Union, EU, was the only regional bloc to have all members as part of the group.
