President Bola Tinubu on Saturday departed Paris, France, for London for a “private visit.”

“Tinubu, who was initially scheduled to be back in Abuja on Saturday, will now proceed to London, United Kingdom, for a short private visit,” a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Special Duties, Communication and Strategy, Dele Alake, read on Saturday.

The statement is titled ‘After successful Paris outing, President Tinubu off to London on private visit.’

Alake revealed that the “President will be back in the country in time for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir festival.”

Tinubu on Friday concluded his official trip to Paris during which he participated in the summit for ‘A New Global Financing Pact’ hosted by French President, Emmanuel Macron.

Aside from his participation at the event, the President also held high-profile sideline meetings with fellow heads of state and government, global business leaders and chief executives of leading multilateral and development finance institutions from around the world.

Meanwhile, the President has welcomed an investment of $520m in specialised agro-processing zones by the African Development Bank.

He praised the President of the multilateral institution, Dr Akinwunmi Adesina, for further opening up the economy for investments that provide job opportunities and reduction in poverty.

In a statement signed on Saturday by Alake, the President said this when he received Adesina after the two-day summit on A New Global Financing Pact in Paris.
