He said President Tinubu has told the Beninoise President to work with the newly appointed Comptroller General of Customs, Adewale Bashir Adeniyi in the interest of both countries.
He said: “We must recognise the fact that we need each other. We are in a loop and no one should separate us.

He added: “We are ready to improve relations. Africa has been the centrepiece of Nigeria’s foreign policy.

“I believe in Africa. We have the necessity to grow the continent. The world’s economy is wobbling, and Africa has been left behind.
“On risk factors, Africa is always placed high, with higher interest rates on borrowing.
