As per the White House statement, the meeting aimed to reaffirm the enduring commitment to the U.S.-Nigeria relationship and the longstanding friendship between the two nations. President Biden expressed his appreciation for the Tinubu Administration’s efforts to reform Nigeria’s economy and commended President Tinubu’s strong leadership as the chair of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in defending democracy and the rule of law in Niger and the broader region.

Nigeria’s invitation to the G20 Summit recognizes its significant global role as Africa’s largest democracy and economy. Biden and Tinubu are set to meet again at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in New York later this month. In August, Ambassador Molly Phee, the U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for African Affairs, conveyed that President Biden specifically requested a meeting with Tinubu at the UN General Assembly, emphasizing the high regard the U.S. administration holds for Tinubu’s leadership in ECOWAS.

During the meeting with Ambassador Phee, President Tinubu expressed ECOWAS’s commitment to addressing the ongoing crisis in Niger and its refusal to allow insincere delays by the military leaders. Ambassador Phee pledged U.S. support for ECOWAS’s position and extended an exclusive invitation from President Biden to meet Tinubu during the UN General Assembly to further discuss matters. The U.S. expressed its commitment to fostering large-scale American investment in Nigeria and strengthening both the Nigerian and regional economies. President Tinubu accepted President Biden’s invitation to meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
