How many countries Tinubu has visited

Here’s a list of every country the President has visited since inauguration:

Paris, France

As Nigerian president, Tinubu’s first country of travel was France, where he attended the New Global Financing Pact Summit.

The journey happened barely a month after he took the oath of office, and he was reported to have used the period to discuss Nigeria’s economic growth with global leaders.

London, the United Kingdom

Two weeks after the France summit, President Tinubu visited London, where he met with his predecessor, ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, on June 27.

The duo meeting was the first of its kind since Buhari handed over to Tinubu on May 29.

On Tuesday, August 1, President Tinubu visited the Benin Republic with six governors to celebrate the country’s democracy with the French-speaking people.
