President Bola Ahmed Tinubu

Nigeria’s chief marketing agent and number one diplomat, President Bola Tinubu has arrived Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, a day before a high powered Saudi-African summit is due to open.

While in the Middle East, Tinubu would attend two summits in the Saudi Arabian city designed by its organisers to boost the level of Arab-African collaboration and cooperation, and promote understanding between all the sides.

The President’s visit is coming against the backdrop of an official advisory issued by the United States warning travellers and investors alike of the danger in turning attention to Nigeria.

Although Nigeria has complained about the advisory, which has a capability of demarketing its efforts, the Tinubu administration which is however, busy scouting for business opportunities across the globe is hoping to convince investors to show more interest in the Nigerian economy.

Tinubu will be hoping to use the opportunity of the summit to underscore Nigeria’s desire to attract foreign investments through  well-knit business partnerships.

Ajuri Ngelale, presidential spokesperson said the Riyadh visit would strengthen government’s resolve to pursue ongoing economic reforms.

Talks at the Saudi-Africa Summit will among other things, centre around the promotion of joint action, reduction of regional security threats as well as the enhancement of the of political coordination.

On the trip with the President are the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Amb. Yusuf Tuggar; Minister of Education, Professor Tahir Mamman and the Coordinating Minister of the Economy and Minister of Finance, Mr Wale Edun.

Also on the trip with President Tinubu are the National Security Adviser, Malam Nuhu Ribadu; the Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Amb. Ahmed Rufai Abubakar; and the head of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, Malam Jalal Arabi.
