Tinubu seeks European Union’s support to fight poverty, insecurity



President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Wednesday called on the European Union to assist Nigeria and Africa in strengthening security and economic development to alleviate poverty in the continent.


In a statement by the Director of Information to the President, Abiodun Oladunjoye, Tinubu spoke during a telephone conversation with the President of the European Council, Mr Charles Michel.


The European Council is the EU institution that defines the general political direction and priorities of the European Union.


According to President Tinubu, Nigeria and the whole of Africa would require the help and partnership of her friends and development partners like the EU to address the excruciating poverty in the continent.


While requesting the EU to look at specific areas of security challenges like Lake Chad and coastal areas, the Nigerian leader promised to remain in contact with the European Union and other member states.


He said poverty and insecurity were priority areas for his administration, and he would do all that is required to address them.


The Council president used the opportunity of the telephone conversation to once again congratulate President Tinubu on his election.


While pledging the commitment of the Council towards stronger cooperation and partnership with Nigeria based on mutual respect and common interests, he pointed out that Nigeria is critical to the EU and the International Community.


Mr Michel urged the Nigerian leader to continue to work with the EU in all relevant areas.

  1. President Tinubu must not sell Nigeria to European countries. They have nothing to offer to the country. When you have them as friend, there’s needless looking for ur enteral ennemis. European countries are ready to empty Nigeria resources for peanuts. I don’t know if President Tinubu has signed agreements with these devilish people. It’s better for Nigeria to look towards China and Russia, they can be our win win partnership.
