Tinubu to speak in London
Legit.ng gathered that Tinubu and his entourage would hit the city of London and visit France, the United States, and other EU countries to consult and solicit their support for his presidential bid.
It was further gathered that Tinubu would speak at Chatham House in London with a host of foreign investors and economic brainiacs to break down his presidential bid and plans for the country.
The statement reads:
"Asiwaju Tinubu will embark on foreign trip to meet global leaders and influencers. Western powers are still very influential on elections in Africa and have more than passing interest in Nigeria's election as the largest economy in the continent and the biggest black nation on earth.
"Asiwaju will use the opportunity of this trip to sell his agenda for national development and also solicit the support of the Western leaders for our transition programme."
