Tinubu To Attend COP28 Climate Summit In Dubai

President Bola Tinubu will, on Wednesday, depart Abuja for Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to attend the COP28 Climate Summit, also known as the 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference, or Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP28).

This was made known in a statement by presidential spokesperson Ajuri Ngelale.

According to the statement, the World Leaders’ Summit, which takes place on December 1 and 2, 2023, under the theme, “Unite, Act, and Deliver,” will have President Tinubu deliver a national statement, highlighting 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 President’s message will also focus on holding businesses and institutions accountable, reflecting Nigeria’s dedication to sustainable and responsible practices”, the statement added.

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