President Bola Tinubu has traveled from Paris, France to London, United Kingdom following his participation in the summit for ‘A New Global Financing Pact’ hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron. The president’s official trip to France concluded on Friday, during which he made significant contributions at the summit.
Initially scheduled to return to Abuja on Saturday, President Tinubu’s plans changed as he decided to proceed to London for a brief private visit before returning to Nigeria in time for the upcoming Eid-el-Kabir festival.
