According to the statement, Buhari made the call on Friday while speaking at the EXPO event in Dubai.
The President declared that the theme of the event, ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, depicts the call for all stakeholders, across national boundaries, to urgently work together for a better and brighter future.
Buhari said, “The concerted efforts by world leaders, working together, enabled us to limit the catastrophic consequences of this pandemic.
“Such level of continuing understanding and pragmatic partnerships are needed and must be reinforced to ensure that our world is a better place that addresses humanity’s common challenges to guarantee sustainable development and progress for the global community.”
The President also revealed that Nigeria was ready to partner with relevant investors in order to make the country better.

“It is my pleasure, therefore, to invite all participating countries, organisations, and other private sector operators to take full advantage of opportunities being provided by the EXPO 2020, by linking up with the Nigerian team, to collaborate with us in diverse areas of interests for our mutual benefits.”
