President Bola Tinubu Returns to Abuja After Two-Week Overseas Tour

Nigeria’s President Bola Tinubu has returned to Abuja after a two-week trip abroad, arriving at his official residence in the Aso Rock Villa early Wednesday morning, confirmed by PUNCH Online.

Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Mr. Bayo Onanuga, announced his impending return via Twitter on Tuesday evening, stating, “President Bola Tinubu, along with his aides, will return to Nigeria tomorrow from Europe.”

The journey commenced on April 23, 2024, when the President left Abuja for The Netherlands for a three-day official visit, responding to an invitation from Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte. During his time in The Netherlands, Tinubu participated in the Nigerian-Dutch Business and Investment Forum and held meetings with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima.

Subsequently, Tinubu traveled to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to attend a World Economic Forum Special Meeting on Global Collaboration, Growth, and Energy for Development from April 28–29. The summit convened leaders from various sectors and countries to review progress since the inaugural Growth Summit held in Geneva in 2023. Following the event, Tinubu proceeded to London for a private visit, although the specifics of his engagements were not officially disclosed.

This return marks Tinubu’s 20th foreign trip since taking office last May, totaling 96 days abroad. His travels have taken him to various destinations, including Paris, London, Bissau, Nairobi, New Delhi, Abu Dhabi, New York, Berlin, Addis Ababa, Dakar, Doha, and The Hague.
