“In witness whereof, I, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, have set my hand and Seal of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on this Instrument of Ratification at Abuja on this 19th day of October in the year Two Thousand and Twenty-Three.”

“If we succeed, democracy succeeds. If we succeed, freedom succeeds. We need all of our partners’ hands on deck to sail together.”

“We have a young and vibrant population, and we are determined to succeed. If we succeed, democracy succeeds. If we succeed, freedom succeeds,” Tinubu said in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, titled ‘President Tinubu calls for strengthening of Nigeria-EU relations; receives EU energy and int’l partnership delegation.’

Tinubu welcomed the signing of eight financing agreements between Nigeria and the EU under the “EU Global Gateway in Nigeria.”


He highlighted the ongoing economic reforms in Nigeria, especially in digital education, energy, renewable energy, and broadband access, with the aim of improving the living conditions of millions of citizens and promoting democracy and freedom.

The EU Commissioner commended Nigeria for its role as a key partner in politics, economics, and social development across Africa and discussed the EU’s strategic investment program, “Global Gateway,” aimed at fostering equal and mutually beneficial partnerships with partner countries.

”We are investing in critical infrastructure such as energy, transportation, and digital infrastructure, as well as in human capital, education, and research,” she said.
