Tinubu Departs Saudi Arabia For Guinea-Bissau (Photos)
President Bola Tinubu has departed Saudi Arabia for Guinea Bissau to attend the 50th Independence Day and Armed Forces Day commemoration of the African country.
In a statement on Wednesday by the presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, President Tinubu will arrive in Bissau on Thursday for the ceremony, which will be hosted by President Umaro Sissoco Embalo.
Guinea-Bissau marked its 50th Independence Anniversary on September 24, 2023, but the government had scheduled all celebrations for November 16, 2023.
The statement added that President Tinubu is expected to return to Abuja on Thursday.
While in Saudi Arabia to attract foreign direct investment and mobilise capital to build needed infrastructure, Tinubu signed preliminary agreements on energy-related cooperation.
He also secured a multi-billion dollar infrastructure finance facility from the Islamic Development Bank to fund a multi-sectoral portfolio of infrastructure projects at Nigeria’s federal and sub-national levels.
The development resulted from substantive investment discussions held between President Tinubu and the Vice-President (Country Programs) of the Islamic Development Bank, Dr. Mansur Muhtar, after the President’s return from evening prayers.
