Meanwhile, President Bola Tinubu has called on the European Union to assist Nigeria and Africa in strengthening security and economic development to alleviate poverty in the continent.
According to reports, the President spoke during a telephone conversation with the President of the European Council, Charles Michel.
The European Council is the EU institution that defines the general political direction and priorities of the European Union.
According to President Tinubu, Nigeria and the whole of Africa would require the help and partnership of her friends and development partners like the EU to address the excruciating poverty in the continent.
While requesting the EU to look at specific areas of security challenges like Lake Chad and coastal areas, the Nigerian leader promised to remain in contact with the European Union and other member states.
He said poverty and insecurity were priority areas for his administration, and he would do all that is required to address them.
