President Bola Tinubu has expressed Nigeria’s readiness to play a major role within the G-20 and contribute to shaping a more equitable world.
This is contained in a statement on Saturday by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, in Abuja.
Tinubu called for global unity and cooperation in tackling pressing challenges, fostering inclusiveness, and establishing a fairer world order while addressing world leaders at the 18th G-20 Leaders’ Summit in New Delhi, India.
The President acknowledged the important role of the G-20 in shaping a rules-based world order that promotes shared prosperity and security.
Tinubu also emphasized: “Most of today’s pressing issues are international in character and cannot be addressed without multilateral cooperation.
Therefore, stronger collaboration, cooperation, and partnership among diverse regions are the pathways to a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable future for our world.
According to him, “This is why the role and contributions of the G-20 in shaping a new world order that is fair and rules-based cannot be over-emphasized.
“I hasten to add that such rules and global governance structures of our collective dreams must be collectively designed, collectively owned, and collectively managed.”
The president noted that this is consistent with the true spirit of one Family, mutual respect, and sustainable development.
“Nigeria is poised, able and willing to be a major player in this family of the G-20 and in shaping a new world, without whom, the family will remain incomplete,” he said.
Speaking further, Tinubu congratulated India for hosting the historic summit and for successfully landing on the moon under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
