President Tinubu Missing At Live Economic Session Summit Of World Leaders In Paris.

By Glam & Essence


The President of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu, didn’t participate in the live economic session of world leaders at the ongoing summit in Paris, instead, he asked the country’s ambassador to represent him.
His inability to go on stage to participate in the live session wasn’t given,since his office had announced that he was in France to attend the summit and participate in a debate about Africa’s economic prospects.
The new global financing pact summit is a two-day event at Palais Brongniart in Paris, and organisers said it was aimed at finding efficient solutions to reduce poverty and the adverse effects of climate change on the world’s financial system.
President Tinubu was scheduled to join other participants on stage at 6:00 p.m. local time (7:00 p.m. in Nigeria) on Thursday, which his aides had said he was fully prepared for, being his first international event since becoming president on May 29.
He was, however, represented by the Nigerian ambassador to France, Ambassador Adamu Ahmed, who was on stage with David Craig, co-chair of the task force on nature-related financial disclosures (TNFD); Mark Carney of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ), Mary Schapiro of global public policy at Bloomberg, Sabine Mauderer of the Network for Greening the Financial System; and United Nations special envoy Catherine Mckenna.
The President’s failure to participate in today’s panel has since sent tongues wagging over the real reason he made that trip,further fueling the rumour making in rounds that it was more for health reasons to receive treatment than to participate in the ongoing summit.
Sceptics are still waiting to see if President Tinubu will be seen participating in the two-day event to lend his voice to the discussions at the summit before it comes to an end.
