President Muhammadu Buhari will be jetting outside the country once again, few days after returning from a week-long trip to China, where he went to discuss issues concerning Africa and Nigeri.

This time, he would be attending a meeting of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, scheduled to hold at the United Nations headquarters from September 18, 2018, where he would be speaking, also.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, who disclosed this to journalists on Tuesday in Abuja, said the President would use the opportunity to canvass for a permanent seat at the United Nations and a for a Nigerian to emerge as the President of the General Assembly next year.

“It is an opportunity for the President to put forward Nigeria’s position globally, the ideas and vision as a global community”, he said.

The Foreign Affairs Minister explained that President Buhari is expected to brief the session on a wide range of issues affecting the country.

“President Buhari will be addressing areas such as eradication of extreme poverty, maintenance of international peace and security, human rights, highlights on humanitarian activities, tackling climate change and promoting environmental sustainability”, Onyema added.

Apart from addressing the General Assembly, the President will also hold a high-level meeting with African Heads of States which will focus on the fight against corruption.

The General Assembly is one of the six main organs of the United Nations, with equal representation for member states.
