President Muhammadu Buhari will lead the Federal Government delegation to New York where he would address the 71st regular session of the United Nations General Assembly on September 21, 2016. Geoffrey Onyeama, Minister of Foreign Affairs, who made this known in Abuja on Friday,  explained that the President would also use the opportunity to build on his excellent relationship with other world leaders and demand the recovery of illicit and looted funds.

According to the minister, the delegation would canvass for the election of an Afro-centric UN Secretary-General, that would be pro-developing countries.

He stated that President Buhari would equally push for the candidature of Nigerians into various influential international agencies  on UN policy and programmes globally, noting that Nigeria has candidates for positions in International Civil Aviation Authority and the United Nations Human Rights Council.
