President-Elect Tinubu to Refine Nigeria Transition Plan in UK
President-elect Bola Tinubu has departed for Europe, in what his aide described as a "working visit", and part of final preparations for his assumption of office on 29 May.
His spokesperson Tunde Rahman said Tinubu "will use the opportunity of the trip to fine-tune the transition plans and programmes, and his policy options with some of his key aides without unnecessary pressures and distractions". During the visit, the president-elect will also engage with investors and other key allies hoping to convince them of Nigeria's readiness to do business under his leadership.
This is the second time Tinubu will be travelling out of the country after he was declared president-elect on 1 March. He returned to Nigeria on 24 April after a four-week vacation in France. Outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari extended his London trip for dental treatment after he attended the King's coronation last week.
Tinubu's victory is being challenged at the presidential election petition tribunal.
