The ex-governor of Lagos State from May 1999 to 2007 was also greeted by colorful Nigerian Army and Nigerian Navy personnel as his convoy traveled from Ikeja to his private property in Bourdillon, Ikoyi.

Alongside other world leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron, Tinubu was in Paris, France, for the meeting on the New Global Financial Pact, which took place at the Palais Brongniart.

The President traveled to London, United Kingdom, for a “short private visit” after the two-day conference, according to a statement from his spokesperson, Dele Alake, last Saturday. This may be a signal that the President would return to Nigeria for the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations on June 28 and 29, 2023.
