Aside his participation at the event where he represented Nigeria well, his Special Adviser on Special Duties, Communications & Strategy, Dele Alake, said President Tinubu 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.

He said the summit afforded the President the opportunity of projecting, on a global stage, his advocacy for widening the fiscal space, economic justice for Africa as the world accelerates the pace of energy transition, and the urgency of addressing the pressing issues of poverty and climate change.

Alake explained in a statement on Saturday that President Tinubu, who was initially scheduled to be back in Abuja on Saturday, will now proceed to London, United Kingdom, for a short private visit.

He said the President will be back in the country in time for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir festival.
