Tinubu Returns Today, to Spend Sallah in Lagos





President Bola Tinubu is set to return to Nigeria today, Tuesday, ahead of the Sallah celebrations.


After ending his official visit in Paris, France, where he participated in the summit for 'A New Global Financing Pact' organized by French President Emmanuel Macron, the president left for London on a private visit last Friday.


According to Presidency sources, barring any last-minute alterations, the President would hold his Sallah homage in Lagos before returning to Abuja, the nation's capital.


The federal government has declared Wednesday and Thursday public holidays to allow Muslims to celebrate Eid- El- Kabir this year.


President Tinubu, who was in France for high-level economic meetings, also met with fellow heads of state and government, global business leaders, and CEOs of prominent international and development financing institutions from around the world.


He also held a town hall meeting with Nigerians living in France before leaving, during which he presented his economic objectives.


According to a top Presidency official who spoke to news sources about the President's private journey to London, the President used the occasion to "rest and strategize."


“There is no big deal about this thing. He simply went to rest after the hectic meetings in France as well as strategise,” the source said.

“As you are aware, he had been working until very late before departing for France.”


Concerning the President's ministerial list, a Presidency source stated that the President will soon send the list to the National Assembly soon.


“You know that he has been meeting with stakeholders. The Governors submitted three names, the party APC also has inputs. So, all things being equal, the President will submit the list as soon as members of the National Assembly resume from their break, early July.
