Tinubu Seeks EU Support To Fight Poverty, Insecurity

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday called on the European Union (EU) to assist Nigeria and Africa in strengthening security and economic development to alleviate poverty in the continent.

A statement signed by Director, Information, Media and Publicity in the State House, Abiodun Oladunjoye, said the president spoke during a telephone conversation with the President of the European Council, Mr. Charles Michel.

The European Council is the EU institution that defines the general political direction and priorities of the European Union.

According to Tinubu, Nigeria and the whole of Africa would require the help and partnership of her friends and development partners like the EU to address the excruciating poverty in the continent.

While requesting the EU to look at specific areas of security challenges like Lake Chad and coastal areas, Tinubu promised to remain in contact with the European Union and other member states.

He said poverty and insecurity were priority areas for his administration and he would do all that was required to address them.

The EU President used the opportunity of the telephone conversation to once again congratulate Tinubu over his election.

While pledging the commitment of the council towards a stronger cooperation and partnership with Nigeria based on mutual respect and common interests, he pointed out that Nigeria was important to the EU and the International Community. 

Michel urged Tinubu to continue to work with the EU in all relevant areas.
