BREAKING: Tinubu Departs Nairobi For Nigeria (Photos) 

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has departed Nairobi, Kenya after participating in the African Union (AU) 5th Mid-year Coordination meeting held at the United Nations (UN) complex.

President Tinubu is expected back in the country later today.

During the meeting, President Tinubu said past plundering and exploitation of the African continent would not be allowed to repeat itself.

He stated this on Sunday at the Fifth Mid-Year Coordination Meeting (5thMYCM) of the African Union (AU), the Regional Economic Communities (RECs), the Regional Mechanisms (RMs), and the African Union Member-States in Nairobi, Kenya.

In his speech entitled “Address on Status of Regional Integration in ECOWAS,” Tinubu called for good governance to ensure a prosperous future for Africa, free from the exploitations of the past.

President, in his capacity as the Chairperson of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, announced plans to strengthen the coalition’s Standby Force to deter coups and combat terrorism in the sub-region.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Special Duties, Communications, and Strategy, Dele Alake, the Nigerian leader reaffirmed Africa’s unity and strength while strongly rejecting the notion of a new scramble for Africa.

He emphasized the need for Africa to overcome its challenges and work towards a prosperous future, focusing on inclusive growth, good governance, and leveraging the opportunities provided by the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).
