President Buhari Departs Abuja To Attend 74th UNGA In New York


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

The President is on the top five list of presidents to address the assembly.

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

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, said Onyeama.

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.
