APC: Why Tinubu Didn’t Meet Biden at UNGA

by Adenike Adeodun

Speculations rose in Nigeria regarding President Bola Tinubu not meeting US President Joe Biden at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York. The All Progressives Congress (APC) clarified that since the two leaders had recently met at the G-20 Summit in India, they felt no need for a second meeting in New York.

According to a report by Premium Times, Felix Morka, the APC spokesperson, addressed rumors instigated by Phrank Shaibu, an aide to the presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Shaibu hinted that APC might be misleading about the scheduled meeting.

Morka said, “There’s no need for further discussion on this meeting.” Unlike earlier beliefs, he clarified that another meeting during UNGA wasn’t planned.

Addressing political debates, Morka highlighted President Tinubu’s contributions. He stressed Tinubu’s significant economic changes. These include pivotal roles in the Ministry of Finance, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), and Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS). Moreover, introducing the Ministry of Marine and Blue Economy showcases an effort to diversify the economy.

Questions arose concerning the validity of Tinubu’s degree from Chicago State University. Currently, this topic is under review in a US court. The Centre for Reform and Public Advocacy (CRPA) suggests this could influence future interactions between Tinubu and the US leadership.

Under the APC, Nigeria faces numerous challenges, ranging from economic recovery to citizen safety. With Tinubu leading, there’s a drive for more transparent governance involving accountability and inclusivity.

Morka urges Nigerians to engage in democratic discussions actively. He emphasizes the importance of distinguishing genuine feedback from biased opinions. He said, “Nigerians should stay informed and cautious of misleading information. President Tinubu remains steadfast in bettering Nigeria for everyone.”
