President Bola Tinubu held separate bilateral meetings with his Kenyan counterpart, William Ruto, and the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, Mark Rutte, on the sidelines of the World Climate Action Summit in Dubai.

The meetings took place prior to the official opening session of the summit, which focuses on global efforts to address climate change.

The President departed from Abuja to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, on Wednesday to participate in the COP28 Climate Summit, also known as the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference or Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC.

Ajuri Ngelale, President Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, had indicated on Tuesday that “Tinubu, who will be participating in the World Leaders’ Summit on December 1 and 2, 2023, will deliver a national statement outlining Nigeria’s position on various thematic issues, including renewable energy and climate financing.”

During his stay in Dubai, Tinubu will actively engage in key sideline events that will further “support the advancement of his avowed commitment to aggressively attract foreign direct investment for enhanced wealth creation and revenue expansion in the country, in addition to other events hosted by the Nigerian delegation.”

Ngelale further stated that the Nigerian delegation to COP28 will actively explore opportunities to establish new and deeper bilateral partnerships to facilitate the implementation of Nigeria’s Energy Transition, Article 6 Projects, Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes, Technology Transfer, Capacity Building, and Methane Mitigation initiatives.
