President Muhammadu Buhari is in New York, to attend the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly UNGA.
The President, who arrived in New York in the late hours of Sunday, was received on arrival by Nigeria’s Ambassador to the US, Justice Sylvanus Adiewere, Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyama and that of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire among others.
President Buhari is scheduled to be the 5th to deliver his address at the UNGA general debate, which starts on Tuesday.
The President is expected to underscore his administration’s commitment to building on the achievements of its three-point agenda following the renewal of his electoral mandate by majority of Nigerians. He will also reaffirm Nigeria’s position on salient global issues.
The President’s participation at this year’s gathering of world leaders is particularly significant as it coincides with Nigeria’s Presidency of UNGA.
The theme for UNGA74 is, ‘Galvanizing Multilateral Efforts for Poverty Eradication, Quality Education, Climate Action and Inclusion.’
