According to Channelstv’s report, President Muhammadu Buhari has left United Nations General Assembly to the United Kingdom today, Thursday the 21st of September 2017.

At the 72nd United Nations General Assembly meeting, the President addressed the gathering on Tuesday, 19th September 2017 in New York, United States of America.

President Buhari said the International community should come together to focus on the need for gender equality, youth empowerment, social inclusion, and the promotion of education, creativity, and innovation.

He, however, pledged Nigeria’s solidarity to the United Nations and he pleaded for the support of the international community in tackling global challenges.

Buhari added:  “Our faith in democracy remains firm and unshaken. Our regional organisation ECOWAS came together to uphold democratic principles in The Gambia – as we had done previously in Cote D’Ivoire.

“Through our individual national efforts, state institutions are being strengthened to promote accountability, and to combat corruption and asset recovery. These can only be achieved through the international community cooperating and providing critical assistance and material support. We shall also cooperate in addressing the growing transnational crimes such as forced labour, modern-day slavery, human trafficking, and cybercrime”.

President Buhari was in a meeting with the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Gueterres and was also one of the African Leaders that had lunch with United States President, Donald Trump.
