In a bid to combat the pressing challenges of security and economic development, President Bola Tinubu reached out to the European Union (EU) on Wednesday, seeking their support for Nigeria and the entire African continent. Recognizing the need for collaboration and assistance from trusted partners, Tinubu emphasized that the EU’s involvement is crucial in addressing the pervasive poverty that afflicts Africa.

According to a statement issued by the Director of Information at the State House, Abiodun Oladunjoye, Tinubu engaged in a telephone conversation with the President of the European Council, Mr. Charles Michel. The statement, titled ‘President Tinubu, in a telephone conversation with European Council president, seeks support to fight poverty, insecurity,’ revealed the nature of their discussion.

During the conversation, Tinubu appealed to the EU to focus on specific areas of security challenges, such as the Lake Chad region and coastal areas. He expressed his commitment to maintaining regular communication with the EU and its member states, emphasizing that poverty and insecurity are top priorities for his administration, warranting immediate attention.

In response, President Michel extended his congratulations to President Tinubu on his election and reiterated the Council’s dedication to fostering stronger cooperation and partnership with Nigeria. Stressing the importance of mutual respect and shared interests, he pledged the Council’s unwavering commitment to support Nigeria on its path towards progress.

Tinubu’s outreach to the EU underscores the gravity of the issues plaguing Nigeria and Africa at large. By seeking collaboration and assistance, he seeks to forge a united front in tackling the complex challenges of security and economic growth. Together, with the EU’s support, Nigeria aims to overcome these obstacles and pave the way for a brighter and more prosperous future. The success of this alliance will not only benefit Nigeria but will also contribute to the stability and advancement of the entire African continent.
