Former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode has praised President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his recent diplomatic achievements.

This comes after the president attended the G20 summit in New Delhi, India, which resulted in significant foreign investment in Nigeria. During the summit, Tinubu emphasised Nigeria’s indispensable role on the global stage, reaffirming the country’s position as a key player in international affairs.

Upon his return, he negotiated with the UAE leader, Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to lift the year-long travel ban placed on Nigerian passport holders.

In a recent tweet posted on his verified X account, Fani-Kayode commended Tinubu for placing Nigeria back on the international stage, asserting that the country rightfully belongs there.

His tweet read: “In the last few days, our President has placed Nigeria back at the centre stage of international affairs, where she rightly belongs.

“After a fantastic outing in India at the G20 summit, which has attracted billions of dollars in investment to our country and where he rightly told world leaders that they cannot do without Nigeria, he went to the UAE and not only ensured that the visa ban on Nigerians was lifted but also ensured a resolution to the trapped Emirati funds at the Central Bank and the issue of flight routes and air travel between our two countries.

“All these achievements in a matter of a few days. These are things that the previous administration could not achieve in years of protracted and oftentimes acrimonious negotiations.

“I am truly proud of our President, and, under his watch, Nigeria is clearly on the rise again. Not only has he restored our confidence and hope, but he has also proved to the world that Great Nigeria, the Giant of Africa, has come alive again. Glory be to God!
