Recall that Tinubu had arrived in Saudi Arabia on Thursday to participate in the Saudi-Africa Summit.
Tinubu, during the Summit, underscored Nigeria’s commitment to attracting more Foreign Direct Investment and expanding business partnerships, strongly reinforced by his administration’s ongoing domestic economic reforms.
Also, discussions at the first Saudi-Africa Summit revolved around supporting joint actions, enhancing political coordination, addressing regional security threats, and facilitating economic transformation through research and the local development of new energy solutions, all while bolstering cross-sectoral investment cooperation.
Due to the bilateral meeting, the Saudi Arabian government had pledged to help repair two refineries in the country and carry out some other investments.
