President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the maiden visit of the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, to Nigeria has shown that the world has not forgotten Nigeria.
This is just as Guterres said the United Nations had called for an additional 351million dollars as part of the overall 1.1billiion dollars for the humanitarian response plan for Nigeria.
Appreciating the visit, Buhari said Nigeria remained grateful to the UN and some world leaders for their steadfast partnership in fighting terrorism, noting that the spotlight on Russia and Ukraine could easily distract from other pertinent global challenges. Buhari noted that terrorism remained a threat to global peace, security and progress, with many already killed, while millions had been displaced by insurgents over many years.
According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari said this when he received Guterres at the Presidential Villa in Abuja. Adesina said Buhari informed the UN Secretary-General of the government’s effort to ensure that citizens return to their farms, businesses and other pursuits in life.
