President Bola Tinubu has described Nigeria as a country that is progressing slowly in comparison to thriving economies, especially in terms of green energy and environmental development indicators. However, he expressed his determination to change this narrative and bring about transformative governance in the nation.
Speaking during a visit by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to the Presidential Villa in Abuja, President Tinubu highlighted the need for Nigeria to modernize its energy infrastructure and environmental protections to align with the global needs of the 21st century.
He also expressed his gratitude for the recent Supreme Court judgment affirming his election as President, which he said has put an end to unnecessary distractions from his political opponents, allowing the government to focus on serving the people and advancing economic opportunities for the nation.
Tinubu welcomed Chancellor Scholz and his delegation to Nigeria, emphasizing the importance of the visit and the potential for partnerships between Nigeria and Germany, given Nigeria’s status as the largest economy in Africa, rich in natural resources, and transitioning toward cleaner energy sources. The President discussed areas of collaboration, including education, power, mineral resources, and security, and expressed his hope that Germany would provide further support in the fight against terrorism and efforts to sustain democracy and the rule of law in Nigeria.
Chancellor Scholz reaffirmed Germany’s commitment to democracy and the rule of law and expressed a willingness to cooperate in various areas, including security and police training.
The visit was seen as an opportunity to strengthen diplomatic ties and explore collaboration in various sectors between Nigeria and Germany.
