Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates, is scheduled to meet with President Bola Tinubu at the State House, Abuja on Monday.
This was revealed by the Chairman of Dangote Group, Aliko Dangote, after a closed-door session with Tinubu at the Aso Rock Presidential Vila on Friday.
“I did not come to do much. I only came to inform the President about our visit with Microsoft co-founder and my friend Bill Gates. We will both see the President on Monday when we come together,” he told State House correspondents.
Although Dangote did not reveal the purpose of Monday’s visit, it is believed to be part of ongoing consultations Tinubu is having with key leaders within the local and global business community.
The President received Exxon Mobil Executives; Liam Mallon, Richard Laing and Mrs Adesua Dozie in a private meeting at the Villa.
In his inaugural speech on May 29, Tinubu promised local and foreign investors that he will “review all their complaints about multiple taxation and various anti-investment inhibitions.”
