Tinubu proceeded to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to attend a special World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting between April 28 and 29, after the engagements in The Netherlands.

The President was expected back in the country after the forum in Saudi Arabia.

But Tinubu is yet to return from the trip to Europe, fuelling speculations about his whereabouts.

In another report, the Nigerian Presidency has come down hard on former Vice President Atiku Abubakar over his claim of conflict of interest in the award of the Lagos-Calabar coastal highway by the Federal Government.

Africa Today News, New York recalls that Atiku, in a statement on Sunday, claimed that the road project was awarded to  Hitech Construction Company because the owner of the firm, Gilbert Chagoury, had business ties with President Bola Tinubu.

The ex-VP also alleged that Tinubu’s son, Seyi, sits on the board of a company owned by Chagoury.

Atiku also faulted the massive demolition of buildings to pave the way for the highway, saying it had the potential to discourage foreign investors.

But the Presidency, in a statement on Monday, denied the claims by Atiku, adding that the former VP lacked the moral right to raise the question of conflict of interests.
