On Saturday in New Delhi, India, President Bola Tinubu affirmed Nigeria's determination to participate actively in the G-20 and help create a more just world.


In a statement on Saturday, Ajuri Ngelale, the President's Special Advisor on Media and Publicity, noted that the President had urged world leaders to work together to address urgent issues, promote inclusivity, and create a more just global order while addressing them at the 18th G-20 Leaders' Summit.


Speaking on the sub-theme of Session II of the Summit, "One Family," President Tinubu emphasized the size of the issues facing humanity and asked the international community to work to establish an inclusive society in which everyone has access to the essentials of life.


President Tinubu stressed that the majority of today's urgent issues are "international in character and cannot be addressed without multilateral cooperation," even as he acknowledged the crucial role of the G-20 in establishing a rules-based international system that fosters shared prosperity and security.


"Therefore, paths to a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable future for our planet lie in deeper collaboration, cooperation, and partnerships among varied regions.


"For this reason, it is impossible to overstate the importance of the G-20's role in establishing a just and rule-based global order. It is impossible to have shared prosperity in a world where most people have unequal access to basic social goods and massive income disparities separate us from living as one family.


"I hasten to add that any global governance structures and rules of our collective aspirations must be cooperatively created, owned, and administered. This is in line with the fundamental meaning of One Family, respect for others, and sustainable growth.


The President also pleaded with the advanced economies, the Global North, and multilateral institutions to mobilize funds and focus efforts where they are most needed in the underdeveloped Global South.
