G20 Is Incomplete Without Nigeria – Tinubu Tells World Leaders
Meanwhile, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has expressed Nigeria’s readiness to play a major role within the G-20, as the body strives to forge a more equitable global order.
According to a statement by his spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, the President said this on Saturday while addressing World leaders during Day One of the 18th G-20 Leaders’ Summit in New Delhi, India.
President Tinubu asserted that collaboration and cooperation among countries and regions will achieve peace and prosperity for nations and acknowledged the vital role of the G-20 in shaping a rules-based world order that promotes shared prosperity and security.
Tinubu pointed out that the role to be played by the League of 20 strongest economies in forging a new and rules-based world order cannot be over-emphasized.
He said: “Most of today’s pressing issues are international in character and cannot be addressed without multilateral cooperation.
“Therefore, stronger collaboration, cooperation, and partnerships among diverse regions are the pathways to a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable future for our world.
“This is why the role and contributions of the G-20 in shaping a new world order that is fair and rules-based can not be over-emphasized. A world that lives as one family, but is divided by staggering income inequalities and uneven access to basic social goods by the vast majority of our people cannot result in a peaceful and secure world where shared prosperity is achieved.”
