Since the United Arab Emirates and we have a lot in common, we would like to work together. The fact that the relationship is improving over time makes me happy.

“I am aware that President Tinubu views politics as business, and he supports everything that will elevate Nigeria. Therefore, we are here as his foot soldiers to support him in seeing that his program for renewed hope is carried out, according to Wike.

In order to allow Nigerians to travel to Dubai and other UAE cities for business and tourism, Wike urged the UAE to swiftly address the visa and Emirates flight concerns.

Al-Shamsi had earlier said how much he loved the people of Nigeria and was thrilled that President Tinubu will be in Dubai for the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 28).

He declared, “This is going to be something really amazing for us.”

The ambassador gave the minister his word that the visa and Emirates flight problems would be fixed quickly.

The UAE will host the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Expo City Dubai will host the conference from November 30 to December 12 in order to debate and come to a consensus on audacious, doable, and ambitious solutions to the world’s climate crisis.
