First Lady of Nigeria: I hoped to holiday a bit in Belarus, but my schedule here is very tight

The First Lady of Nigeria, Oluremi Tinubu, told President Aleksandr Lukashenko today that she had already held a number of intense meetings and negotiations in Belarus


Oluremi Tinubu, first of all, thanked the Head of State for the opportunity to meet. She conveyed the warmest wishes to the Belarusian leader from the President of Nigeria, without whose permission this visit would not have taken place.

“This is my first visit to Belarus, and I want to thank you for the special hospitality that has been extended to us. Actually, I hoped to holiday a bit here, but my visit has turned out to be full of eventful and interesting meetings,” the Nigerian guest said, and Aleksandr Lukashenko suggested with a smile, “So not be in a hurry to go home: it is possible to prolong your holidays.”

“I promise that I will be back. Since the first day of my visit, I have had several meetings, and I was most impressed by the Belarusian Women's Union. We had a meeting with the Education Minister, discussing several ideas of co-operation with which we can move forward," the distinguished foreign guest noted.

Oluremi Tinubu also met with Natalya Kochanova, the Chairperson of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus, calling that event very fruitful.
