Nigerians have expressed anger that Toke Makinwa, IBD Dende, and Seyi Tinubu are listed as “item 7” on a list of 1,411 attendees for the COP28.
The list released by the Federal Government has angered most Nigerians after sighting certain names on the tall lists of attendees that President Bola Tinubu sponsored for the COP28 Climate Summit in Dubai.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) government is hosting COP28, also known as the 28th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC. It is scheduled to take place from November 30 to December 12.
Toke Makinwa recorded her attendance at COP28 and shared it on her verified Instagram profile today, December 2, 2023. She promised to provide updates to her fans and follow as the summit’s proceedings develop.
While other countries send expertise in climate-related sectors, Tinubu’s team from Nigeria, which includes entertainment industry personality Toke Makinwa, causes controversy. Opponents contend that these decisions damage Nigeria’s credibility when it comes to its participation in international gatherings.
Critics denounce the apparent abuse of taxpayer dollars for political goals and express concerns about the use of public funding for actions they believe are politically motivated and frivolous.
Nigerians want accountability and openness, and they want politicians to give priority to deserving candidates who can significantly advance the conversation on climate change.
