According to Tinubu, this is aimed to prepare the Nigerian youths for 21st century economy.

This was contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, and shared on his Facebook page on Saturday.

Addressing leaders at the 37th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Saturday, Tinubu stated that his administration would engage the African Union Commission in collaboration with member states to ensure that the bank takes off as scheduled in 2028.

On education, which is the theme of this year’s summit, Tinubu noted that education is the core ingredient in the process of evolving creative solutions to the unique challenges long confronting the continent.

According to the statement, Tinubu said that his administration is devoting ample resources to education at all levels.

The statement read, “As a continent and as individual nations, we face strong headwinds and difficult hurdles threatening to complicate our mission to bring qualitative democratic governance and economic development to our people. Many of these obstacles, such as climate change and unfair patterns of global trade, are largely not of our making.

“The drive for a peaceful, strong, and united West Africa is bigger than any one person or group of people. The bonds of history, culture, commerce, geography, and brotherhood hold deep meaning for our people.

“Thus, out of the dust and fog of misunderstanding and acrimony, we must seize the chance to create a new people-centric era of trust and accord.

“To all who care to listen, I declare that if you come to the table to discuss important matters in good faith, you will find Nigeria and ECOWAS already sitting there waiting to greet you as the brother that you are.”
