President Bola Tinubu has held separate bilateral meetings with the Kenyan President, William Ruto, and the Netherlands’s Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, on the sidelines of the World Climate Action Summit in Dubai.
Tinubu met Ruto and Rutte before the official opening session of the summit, which focuses on global efforts to address climate change.
Premium Politics reported earlier that the Nigerian President also had a bilateral meeting with King Charles III of the United Kingdom on Thursday, saying the meeting would foster a stronger bilateral relationship between the two countries.
Tinubu departed Abuja to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, on Wednesday, to participate in the COP28 Climate Summit, also known as the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference or Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC.
It would be recalled that the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, had earlier indicated on Tuesday, that “Tinubu, who will be participating in the World Leaders’ Summit on December 1 and 2, 2023, will deliver a national statement outlining Nigeria’s position on various thematic issues, including renewable energy and climate financing.”
During his stay in Dubai, Tinubu will actively engage in key sideline events that will further “support the advancement of his avowed commitment to aggressively attract foreign direct investment for enhanced wealth creation and revenue expansion in the country, in addition to other events hosted by the Nigerian delegation.”
According to Ngelale the Nigerian delegation to COP28 will actively explore opportunities to establish new and deeper bilateral partnerships to facilitate the implementation of Nigeria’s Energy Transition, Article 6 Projects, Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes, Technology Transfer, Capacity Building, and Methane Mitigation initiatives.
