Tinubu, Scholz Talk Security, Economic Ties in Bilateral Meet

Published on

President Bola Tinubu assured German Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Nigeria’s dedication to transformative governance during their bilateral political talks. The discussion focused on bolstering Germany-Nigeria ties. According to a report by The Sun, Tinubu expressed Nigeria’s ongoing challenges but remained optimistic about the nation’s trajectory.

“Nigeria may be struggling, but we’re committed to reshaping its story,” Tinubu said. He welcomed Germany’s partnership in sectors such as education, energy, and mineral resources.

Addressing national security, Tinubu acknowledged advancements in counter-terrorism efforts. However, he emphasized Nigeria’s continued need for international support to uphold democratic values.

Recent geopolitical developments, including coups in Guinea and Niger, have raised concerns. “We’re diplomatically navigating these events. Your expertise, especially in security, remains invaluable,” Tinubu told Scholz.

On the recent Supreme Court verdict, Tinubu conveyed relief. “This decision allows us to center our efforts on governance and driving Nigeria’s economic progress,” he said. Recognizing Germany’s economic prowess, he noted opportunities for mutual growth and collaboration, especially in environmental and energy advancements.

Chancellor Scholz reciprocated Tinubu’s sentiments. He affirmed Germany’s commitment to democratic values and promised continued support in tackling Nigeria’s security challenges. Scholz also highlighted potential economic collaborations, focusing on sustainable energy and Nigeria’s mineral wealth.
