The APC’s Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is to begin foreign trips from December 4 to meet global leaders and pitch his Presidential aspiration.
The presidential hopeful will return to Nigeria latest 12 December to continue his campaign rallies and stakeholders’ engagement.
It was gathered that the former governor of Lagos State would hit London first, where he would address the Chatham House, the United Kingdom’s elite Foreign and Policy Think-tank institution.
Sources said his speech on 5 December would dwell on security, economy and foreign policy.
Western Post reports that Tinubu and his delegation would also travel to the United States of America, France and key European Union member states to share his vision and plans and to also solicit the support of the Western powers for the democratic process that will usher in new administration in Nigeria from May 29th, 2023.
Tinubu is vying for the 2023 presidency on the platform of APC to take over after the expiration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term in office.
A top source said that “Asiwaju Tinubu will embark on foreign trip to meet global leaders and influencers. Western powers are still very influential on elections in Africa and they have more than passing interest in Nigeria’s election as the largest economy in the continent and biggest black nation on earth.
“Asiwaju will use the opportunity of this trip to sell his agenda for national development and also solicit the support of the Western leaders for our transition programme.”
