President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has returned to Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city, after spending four days to participate in the G20 “Compact with Africa” (CwA) conference in Berlin, Germany.
Tinubu who touched down at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, was received by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje and his Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, among others.
Tinubu departed Abuja for Berlin last Sunday morning.
During the conference, the president joined other Heads of State and Government of CwA member countries, bilateral partners, as well as heads of international organizations and deliberated on the immediate enhancement of economic and business cooperation with a view to outlining concrete measures to boost investments in critical areas such as energy, trade, infrastructure, and new technologies, among others.
The G20 CwA Conference took place simultaneously with the Fourth G20 Investment Summit, co-hosted by the German government and German business associations.
The president also on Monday held bilateral talks with German Chancellor Scholz with top officials of the two countries including ministers in attendance.
President Tinubu 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 secured.
The president 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 advent of the Fourth Republic, President 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.”
