Our Nigerian president, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is currently in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Why is our president in Dubai?
Well, our president, Bola Tinubu, is in Dubai to attend the 28th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This UN Climate Change conferences happen every year and during them, a lot of the world's most powerful people gather to hold a multilateral decision making forum on climate change with almost complete membership of every country in the world.
It is a very big deal event. In essence, the COP is where the world's power players come together to agree on different ways to address the climate crisis. Some decisions being made at the event were limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, achieving net-zero emissions by the year 2050, and helping vulnerable communities adapt to the effects of climate change.
Outside of the climate conversation, during the COP event, President Bola Tinubu met with His Majesty, King Charles III of England, and had a discussion with him. Now, President Tinubu is telling us what the two powerful men talked about. Here's what he said.

What Did Tinubu Discuss With King Charles?
On Pres. Bola Tinubu's official X account, he wrote:
PRESIDENT TINUBU: I had a productive meeting with His Majesty, King Charles III of England who is also the Head of the Commonwealth, and a passionate climate advocate.
The meeting was a significant step in strengthening the partnership between Nigeria and the United Kingdom, and I am optimistic about the positive impact our joint efforts will have on our planet’s future as we look forward to setting an equitable global standard for environmental stewardship at #COP28
So from the looks of it, it sounds like the conversation was mainly about climate change. Hmmm, interesting!
