Tinubu fails to join Paris summit economic panel on stage; asks another official to represent Nigeria

Tinubu has failed to join Paris summit economic panel on stage; asks another official to represent Nigeria.

The Nigerian leader asked the country’s ambassador to represent him instead. It was not immediately clear why Mr Tinubu could not go on stage by himself, especially as his office previously announced he was in France to attend the summit and participate in a debate about Africa’s economic prospects. 

The new global financing pact summit is a two-day event at Palais Brongniart in Paris, and organisers said it was aimed at finding efficient solutions to reduce poverty and the adverse effects of climate change on the world’s financial system.

According to the progamme of schedule sighted by The Nation, the one-hour panelist session is slated for 18:00 – 19:00. 

The panel session titled: “Ensuring more reliable, comparable information and data” will be moderated by Sylvie Goulard and Mark Carney (GFANZ).

Mr Tinubu was scheduled to join other participants on stage at 6:00 p.m. local time (7:00 p.m. in Nigeria) on Thursday, with his aides saying he was fully prepared for the event as his first since becoming president on May 29. 

Other panelists include: David Craig, Co-Chair of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD); Mark Carney, Co-Chair of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) ; Mary Schapiro, Vice-Chair of Global Public Policy at Bloomberg; Sabine Mauderer, Vice-Chair of the Network for Greening the Financial System ; and United Nations Special Envoy, Catherine Mckenna

The Nation reports Tinubu arrived at the venue in the company of his Aide-de-Camp, Nurudeen Yusuf and was received by the French Minister of Foreign Affairs and Europe, Catherine Colonna.
