President Bola Tinubu has arrived Delhi, the capital of India, where he will attend the G20 Leaders’ Summit and engage in other official meetings.

Tinubu arrived at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi, at about 6:40 pm (2:10 pm Nigerian time), accompanied by some senior government officials.

Besides participating in the Summit slated to hold between Saturday 9 and Sunday 10, September 2023, Tinubu also has lined up a number of high-level meetings and engagements with other world leaders and business executives on the sidelines of the Summit.

The President is also expected to meet with the Nigerian community in India.

Earlier in a statement, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, disclosed that President Tinubu would be engaging his time in India in various meetings to attract global capital and increase foreign direct investments (FDI) to the country.

“On the sidelines of the Summit, the President will participate in and deliver keynote addresses at both the Nigeria-India Presidential Roundtable and the Nigeria-India Business Conference.

If I Had Power I Would Have Fired Wike From PDP Long Ago – Dele Momodu

The Director of Strategic Communications for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Momodu, said he would have expelled the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) if he had the power.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Political Paradigm programme on Tuesday, Momodu accused Wike of trying to destroy the party, saying, “I don’t have the power, if I had power I would have fired him (Wike) long ago.”

The PDP chieftain, however, said he does not fault the ministerial appointment of Wike by President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Asked why he would fire the former Rivers State governor from the party, Momodu replied, “Such and unruly person who wants to destroy our party? One individual cannot hold everybody to ransom. If we fought the military, we fought the military in this country, Tinubu was part of those who fought the military in this country, and then you will now allow a civilian dictatorship?”
