Nigeria, according to President Bola Tinubu, is ready to assume a leadership position within the G-20 and help create a more just global order.
This was announced on Saturday in Abuja by Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.
Speaking to international leaders during the 18th G-20 Leaders’ Summit in New Delhi, India, Tinubu urged them to work together to find solutions to urgent problems, promote diversity, and create a more equitable global order.
The President praised the G-20 for its efforts to create a rules-based international system that benefits all nations.
Most of the problems we face today, Tinubu continued, “have an international dimension and cannot be solved without multilateral cooperation.”
Therefore, greater cooperation, partnership, and collaboration among different regions are the means to a sustainable, peaceful, and wealthy future for our planet.
This, he says, is why the G-20’s efforts to create a more equitable and rules-based global order are so crucial.
To add emphasis, “I hasten to add that such rules and global governance structures of our collective dreams must be collectively designed, collectively owned, and collectively managed.”
The president said that this reflects the true spirit of one Family, mutual respect, and long-term growth.
“Nigeria is poised, able, and willing to be a major player in this family of the G-20 and in shaping a new world, without whom, the family will remain incomplete,” he said.
After his initial remarks, Tinubu extended his gratitude to India for hosting the historic summit and praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for leading the country to the moon.
