The Presidency has issued a clarification regarding its previous assertion that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the inaugural African leader to participate in the ceremonial closing bell-ringing at the National Association of Securities Dealers Automatic Quotation System (NASDAQ) in New York.
In a statement released on Friday, Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Tinubu explained that the initial claim made by the Presidency was based on information provided by an external event organizer.
It has since come to light that a former African leader had previously enjoyed participating in this ceremonial event.
Mr. Ngelale expressed the administration’s sincere regret for the erroneous statement.
Notably, the Presidency had earlier announced President Bola Tinubu’s participation in this prestigious event, attributing the invitation to his resolute efforts in promoting foreign direct investment into Nigeria globally.
