President Muhammadu Buhari addresses the 72nd UN General Assembly

President Muhammadu Buhari is set to participate in the United Nations General Assembly's 74th Session in New York, United States, amidst insecurity and gross human rights under his administration.

More than five human rights activists including pro-democracy campaigner, Omoyele Sowore, have been detained by the Buhari’s regime since January 2019.

In a post on Twitter on Thursday, the Presidency said Buhari will speak at the gathering of world leaders to address silent global issues.

The tweet reads, “President Buhari will depart Abuja Sunday for New York, United States, to participate in the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly which opened on September 17.

“President Buhari is scheduled as number five speaker on the first day of the debates – another plus for Nigeria as most world leaders will be listening in the General Assembly while the global audience watches on live television.

“President Buhari is expected to underscore his administration’s commitment to building on the achievements of its three-point agenda following the renewal of his electoral mandate by majority of Nigerians.

“He will also reaffirm Nigeria’s position on salient global issues.”
