Buhari Jets Out To
The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, is expected to tackle the 72th session of the United Nations General Assembly in the United States on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Buhari is seventh on the provincial list of speakers at the event. He is expected to speak after the leaders of Brazil, the United States, Guinea, Switzerland, Jordan and Slovakia. After returning to Nigeria on August 20, 2017, after 103 days of medical leave in London, Buhari has not attended a public event outside Aso Villa and his country house in Daura, Katsina State. He has also attended only one federal board since he returned three weeks ago. Under the leadership of the president, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo recently visited the flood-affected Benue state where thousands have moved. Osinbajo, during the president’s representation, has also received members of the United States Congress, as well as the United Kingdom Secretary of State and Commonwealth Affairs and his team in the villa. The vice-chairman also chaired all economic meetings, including the 15th Annual Meeting of the ECOWAS Bank Investment Board and the National Industrial Council Meeting, which hosted Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, and many other industrial captains. The Senior Special Assistant of President Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, however, confirmed to our correspondent on the phone that Buhari would attend the UN General Assembly. Shehu said, “I can not tell you what time he will go because it can change.
