Tinubu embarks on foreign trip Dec 4
The presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will embark on foreign trips from December 4 to meet global leaders and pitch his presidential aspiration.
The Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Organisation disclosed this in a statement on Monday.
According to the statement, the APC flagbearer will return to Nigeria latest 12 December to continue his campaign rallies and stakeholders’ engagement.
“His first port of call will be London, where according to campaign sources, he will address the Chatham House, the United Kingdom’s elite Foreign and Policy Think-tank institution.
“His speech on 5 December will dwell on security, economy and foreign policy,” the statement read in part.
Tinubu and his delegation are also scheduled to travel to the United States of America, France and key European Union member states to share his vision and plans and to also solicit the support of the Western powers for the democratic process that will usher in new administration in Nigeria from May 29th, 2023.
Tinubu hopes to succeed the APC-led administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Asiwaju Tinubu will embark on foreign trip to meet global leaders and influencers. Western powers are still very influential on elections in Africa and they have more than passing interest in Nigeria’s election as the largest economy in the continent and biggest black nation on earth.
“Asiwaju will use the opportunity of this trip to sell his agenda for national development and also solicit the support of the Western leaders for our transition programme,” said a campaign source.
