President Bola Tinubu convened a high-level meeting at the Presidential Villa in Abuja. The meeting, which took place on Monday, September 4, brought together key figures in the nation’s defense apparatus, including Minister of Defense Abubakar Badaru and Minister of State for Defense Bello Matawalle.
Also in attendance were the nation’s top military leadership, including General Christopher Musa, Lt General Taoreed Lagbaja, Vice Admiral Emmanuel Ogalla, and Air Marshal Hassan Abubakar.
This gathering marked a significant engagement, occurring shortly after President Tinubu’s decoration of the Chief of Defense Staff and the service chiefs.
Held behind closed doors, the meeting lasted less than an hour, with details remaining undisclosed to the media.
Such meetings traditionally serve to brief the President on the overall security situation in the country, focusing on areas requiring intensified efforts and the need to address vulnerabilities.
Following this meeting, President Tinubu is scheduled to embark on a trip to New Delhi, India, to participate in the G20 Leadership Summit. This trip underscores the importance of international cooperation in addressing global challenges.
During the summit, President Tinubu is expected to participate in the Nigeria-India Presidential Roundtable and the Nigeria-India Business Conference, where he will deliver keynote addresses. These platforms offer opportunities to attract global capital and promote foreign direct investments in key sectors of Nigeria’s economy, with a strong emphasis on job creation and revenue expansion.
