Buhari Addresses UN, Calls For Peace, Global Support Against Terrorism.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday at the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly in New York, urged the world to strive for peace and decent living for all people. Buhari, who delivered Nigeria’s National Statement, lauded the international community’s support against Boko Haram and for providing support to address the huge humanitarian challenges in Nigeria’s North-East. “In an exemplary show of solidarity, the international community came together within my own region to assist the countries and communities in the Sahel. “The international community also assisted the Lake Chad regions to contain the threats posed by Al Qaida and Boko Haram. “We thank the Security Council for visiting the countries of the Lake Chad Basin to assess the security situation and humanitarian needs and for pledging assistance to rebuild lives and livelihoods. “Indeed, in Nigeria we are providing relief and humanitarian assistance to millions in internally displaced camps and those afflicted by terrorism, drought, floods and other natural disasters,” he said. The president also assured the UN of Nigeria’s support, especially at this troubled time in the life of the organisation.
