President Bola Tinubu will depart Abuja, the nation’s capital, on Wednesday, for the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

A statement issued by Ajuri Ngelale, presidential spokesperson, on Tuesday, said Tinubu will deliver a national statement at the world leaders’ summit which takes place on December 1 and 2.

Ngelale added that the president’s address at the summit with the theme  — “Unite, act, and deliver” — will highlight Nigeria’s stance on various thematic issues, including renewable energy and climate financing.

“Mindful of the severe impact of climate change on Nigeria, such as desertification, flooding, erosion, drought, and national security risks arising therefrom, President Tinubu will maximize the opportunity afforded by the platform to advocate increased financial and technical support for developing nations, while reminding developed countries of their public pledge to provide $100 billion annually for support to localized initiatives to address climate change-related challenges,” the statement reads.


“The president’s message will also focus on holding businesses and institutions accountable, reflecting Nigeria’s dedication to sustainable and responsible practices.

“The Nigerian delegation to COP28 will actively explore establishing new and deeper bilateral partnerships to implement Nigeria’s Energy Transition, Article 6 Projects, Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs), Technology Transfer, Capacity Building, and Methane Mitigation.”

The statement also said Tinubu will participate in key events on the sidelines, in furtherance of his goal to attract foreign direct investments to Nigeria.


The president, who will be accompanied by senior government officials, is expected to return to Abuja at the conclusion of the summit, Ngelale added.
