Tinubu to attend UN general assembly on Sunday


President Bola Tinubu will depart Abuja on Sunday to attend the 77th United Nations General Assembly in New York City.

The President will use the opportunity to meet with other heads of state and key economic stakeholders around the world. 

He will also meet with the CEOs of Microsoft, Meta, General Electric, and Exxon Mobil to discuss ways to deepen digital transformation, leverage new innovations, and advance investment in the oil and gas sector.

In a statement, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, said that the President’s visit to New York is part of his “aggressive economic development and diplomatic drive” to attract foreign direct investment into Nigeria.

The President is committed to deepening digital transformation in the country and expanding the digital economic footprint,” Ngelale said. “He is also committed to leveraging new innovations such as artificial intelligence to impact the way we do business in Nigeria.”

The President’s meeting with the CEOs of Microsoft, Meta, and General Electric is expected to be wide-ranging and will focus on how these companies can partner with Nigeria to achieve its economic goals.

The President’s meeting with the CEO of Exxon Mobil is also expected to be significant. Nigeria is a major oil producer, and the President is keen to attract investment in the oil and gas sector.

In addition to his meetings with CEOs, the President will also hold bilateral meetings with the President of the United States, the President of Comoros, the President of South Africa, the President of the European Union Commission, the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, the King of Jordan, the Algerian President, the Brazilian President, and the Spanish Prime Minister.
