President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Wednesday, departed Abuja for Paris, France, for a private visit.
His Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, had revealed this in a statement on Wednesday but did not disclose the reasons for the visit.
According to the statement, Tinubu is expected to return to the country in the first week of February 2024.
The PUNCH reports that this visit is Tinubu’s third to the country since he assumed office eight months ago.
On June 20, 2023, three weeks after assuming office, Tinubu opened his foreign schedule in the city he last visited as President-elect, Paris, the French capital.
In September 2023, the President spent nine days with world leaders in New York, USA, at the 78th United Nations General Assembly, which began on September 19, his first UNGA as President.
Afterward, he proceeded to Paris, France, where he remained for five days, arriving in Abuja on September 29 ahead of Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Day anniversary on October 1.
