74th UNGA: Buhari jets out of Abuja to New York

Buhari waves

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Sunday, departed Abuja for New York where he will be attending the 74th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

The President, who departed in company of three governors and seven ministers among other delegates, will be the 5th on the list of presidents to address the Assembly.

According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffery Onyeama, “President Buhari will use the opportunity to articulate the priorities of the Nigerian government to the world.”

He also noted that Nigeria is hoping to partake in engagements that will help the country have seats in several organisations such as the International Maritime Organisation, the World Heritage Committee, and the International Civil Aviation Council.

“Nigeria will also be pushing for the UN’s support in the war on terror, the humane treatment of migrants, as well as Nigeria’s quest to recharge lake Chad,” he said.
