President Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently in the USA with working visit, has delivered an address at high level plenary meeting at the United Nations Headquarters, New York on September 16, Monday.
During the first session of the 71st United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Buhari and other world leaders would be discussing issues around migration and security, amongst others.
NTA reports that in his speech Nigeria’s president has warned the world leaders that unless their is collective resolve to develop more effective strategies in addressing large movements of refugees and migrants as well as humanitarian needs of IDP’s in Nigeria, the world aspirations towards achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals may be obstructed.
Buhari said humanity is better promoted and protected if leaders work for the joint good of all.
Meanwhile, security has taken the shine off the meeting even before it kicked off formally following an explosion that rocked the city.
Earlier today, President Buhari participated in high level meeting on refugees and migrants’ issue. He will also attend AU Peace and Security Council Meeting.
Over 190 Heads of State and Governments attended the summit.
