President Bola Tinubu will attend the upcoming G-20 meeting, which will be held in New Delhi, India, on September 9–10.
Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said this during a news conference on Friday.
Tinubu’s primary goal during the summit, according to Ngelale, is to encourage foreign investments to Nigeria, underlining the need of generating private cash from around the world to assist the country’s public infrastructure development.
The G-20, commonly known as the Group of 20, is an intergovernmental summit of 19 countries and the European Union. It aims to address important global economic concerns such as international financial stability, climate change mitigation, and sustainable development.
The group consists of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union.
Ngelale further stated that President Tinubu will meet with world leaders, chiefs of state, industry leaders, and CEOs of significant corporations, particularly those with Indian roots.
“We are going to make sure, under the direction of the president, that we make the most of the opportunity to add value to the nation, to create jobs for our citizens, and ultimately, to increase and generate resources for the nation to guarantee that the government can properly finance and support its forward-thinking programmes across sectors.
“There is a lot to cover, and when we get into Nigeria the following week, there will be live updates from India, which I will provide every day to give Nigerians full access to what their president is doing on their behalf,” he said.
