President Bola Tinubu will leave Abuja on Wednesday (today) for Paris for a private visit.
This was revealed on Wednesday by presidential spokesperson Ajuri Ngelale in a statement.
Ngelale said the president will return to Nigeria in the first week of February.
“President Bola Tinubu departs Abuja for Paris, France on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, for a private visit. He will return to the country in the first week of February 2024,” the statement said.
The trip will be President Tinubu’s second to France since he took office in May 2023.
In June 2023, the president joined world leaders in Paris to review and sign a New Global Financial Compact that places vulnerable countries on a priority list for support and investment, following the devastating impact of climate change, the energy crisis and the subsequent effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The president participated in the two-day summit that discussed opportunities to restore fiscal space to countries facing difficult near-term financial challenges, especially the most indebted; mobilize innovative financing for countries vulnerable to climate change; foster development in low-income countries and encourage investment in “green” infrastructure for the energy transition in emerging and developing economies.
