Tinubu is expected to spend 13 days on the foreign trip as APC takes campaign abroad

Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president, will go to the United States and other European nations starting on December 4.

According to the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the APC, Mr. Tinubu will travel abroad for 13 days.

The PCC posted a statement on its Twitter account on Monday in an effort to win the support of important world leaders for the former governor of Lagos State’s bid for the presidency.

Additionally, it was announced that Mr. Tinubu would lecture on security, the economy, and foreign policy at the prestigious Chatham House, a think tank on global and policy issues in the United Kingdom, on December 5.

The additional nations the APC candidate will visit were not named by the council.

On its official website, Chatham House announced that Mr. Tinubu will speak about “his vision and recently unveiled manifesto for’renewing hope’ in Nigeria,” as well as “his policy proposals for economic reform and revival and how to deliver secure and inclusive job opportunities for Nigerian citizens.”

“Nigeria’s recently enacted Electoral Act has contributed to improved hope around the election process, reflected in the addition of 12.29 million new voters in Nigeria’s voter registration exercise across the federation’s 36 states and 1,491 constituencies.

The event is a part of a series of activities and products studying Nigeria’s elections and political trends, according to the statement.

The polls would bring to an end President Muhammadu Buhari’s two terms in office since his victory in 2015 and will be the first time he has skipped a presidential election since Nigeria’s switch to civilian administration in 1999, according to Chatham House.

“Yet Nigeria stands at a critical juncture, having suffered from two recessions in the past six years, unprecedented levels of food insecurity, persistent fuel scarcity and high levels of crude oil theft.

“Civic fatigue also remains an important challenge and President Muhammadu Buhari’s three main policy pillars of security, economy and corruption continue to be defining issues for citizens.”

Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) are some presidential candidates who have recently taken their campaigns abroad.
