President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has revealed that his meeting with King Charles III of England was a significant move in fortifying the partnership between Nigeria and the United Kingdom (UK).
Tinubu conveyed this information in a tweet shared via his official X account on Thursday.
He wrote, “I held a fruitful discussion with His Majesty, King Charles III of England, who also serves as the Head of the Commonwealth and is a fervent advocate for climate action.
“This meeting stands as a momentous stride in solidifying the alliance between Nigeria and the United Kingdom. I am optimistic about the constructive impact that our collaborative endeavors will exert on the future of our planet.
