President Bola Ahmed Tinubu held a meeting with King Charles of England in preparation for the COP28 Climate Action Summit scheduled to take place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The President on Wednesday, November 29, 2023, departed Abuja, Nigeria, to Dubai, the UAE 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.
Ajuri Ngelale, President Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, had 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.”
Ngelale further stated that 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.
This is the first time Tinubu will be meeting King Charles since his inauguration as Nigeria’s 16th president on May 29, 2023.
