A statement by presidential spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale, on Thursday had referred to that fact.
”We inadvertently referred to President Bola Tinubu as the first African leader to ring the bell at NASDAQ on Wednesday in New York, based on the information provided by a third-party event organiser.
”We have since found out that this information was/is incorrect as a former African leader has indeed had the privilege.
”This error is sincerely regretted.”
NAN report that the statement that was earlier given out said:
”In honour of President Bola Tinubu’s determined global push to aggressively attract foreign direct investment into Nigeria.
”The world’s second largest stock exchange, the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotation System (NASDAQ), on Wednesday in the world’s financial capital, invited President Tinubu to ring the closing bell.
”Making him the first African President to ever receive the honour”. (NAN)
