President Muhammadu Buhari says world leaders need to continue to stick together to address humanity’s challenges.

Speaking on Friday at the ‘Nigerian Day’ at the Expo 2020 Dubai, Buhari said the efforts of world leaders working together have helped to curb the spread of COVID.

The president said the relationship among world leaders should be reinforced to ensure there is sustainable growth and development across the globe.

“The concerted efforts by world leaders, working together, enabled us to limit the catastrophic consequences of this pandemic,” he said according to a statement by Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman.

“Such a level of continuing understanding and pragmatic partnerships are needed and must be reinforced to ensure that our world is a better place that addresses humanity’s common challenges to guarantee sustainable development and progress for the global community.”

The president said the COVID pandemic compounded his administration’s efforts in addressing insecurity, fighting corruption and diversifying the nation’s economy.

“Therefore, the Nigerian delegation is participating in this Expo with great prospects for positive outcomes, while assuring the world of our determination and readiness to partner with relevant investors in our bid to tackle a number of challenges to make Nigeria a better country,” he said.

“Nigeria is participating in this epoch-making event in order to explore opportunities that are capable of unlocking the huge potentials that abound in our country, as it makes conscious efforts to be a strategic partner of choice for the global community.

“It is my pleasure, therefore, to invite all participating countries, organisations and other private sector operators to take full advantage of opportunities being provided by the EXPO 2020, by linking up with the Nigerian team, to collaborate with us in diverse areas of interests for our mutual benefits.”

Buhari said the Expo 2020 Dubai is the single most important global event of its kind to take place in the Middle East, Africa and the South-East Asian regions in recent years.

“We are proud to be a part of this dynamic evolution of pragmatic partnerships that are both creative and innovative for the progress of the country,” he added.
