On Monday, Tinubu also held bilateral talks with the German Chancellor, Scholz with top officials of the two countries including ministers in attendance.

Similarly, the President on Tuesday, attended the 10th German-Nigerian Business Forum in Berlin where he assured the German business community that with Nigeria’s stable political landscape, foreign investments into the country are now very secure.

He further disclosed that with a resilient democracy, Nigeria is well-primed to attract foreign direct investments.

Tracing the history of stable democratic dispensation in Nigeria since the inception of the Fourth Republic, Tinubu said: ”Since 1999, we have witnessed changes in democratic governance, with peaceful transfers of power within and between parties.

“Democracy in Nigeria has proven to be flexible and resilient. Shake off any remnants of the military era syndrome; we have moved beyond that. Despite challenges faced by other African nations, Nigeria stands firm, and we are your partners.”
