Protesters at UN headquarters as Buhari is set to read his address
The 76th Session of the high-level General Debate of the UN General Assembly will be addressed by President Muhammadu Buhari at the UN headquarters in New York on Friday.
However, in a four-minute video that emerged online, some protesters stormed New York, where the United Nations meeting is ongoing to state their demands.
In the video, one of the protesters, who claimed he was not a Nigerian, was seen carrying a placard with the caption, ‘Nigerian Christians not target of genocide.’
The protesters, clad in a green and white shirt, were also seen with another placard with the caption, ‘stronger together.’
Some of the protesters insisted that they have no idea why they are protesting.
The Nigerian leader will speak to the theme of the Assembly and other global issues.
The theme for the 76th session is, “Building Resilience Through Hope – To Recover from COVID-19, Rebuild Sustainably, Respond to the Needs of the Planet, Respect the Rights of People and Revitalise the United Nation’’.
Friday’s session will also include speeches by leaders from The Gambia, South Sudan, Republic of Benin, Senegal and Germany, among others.
Buhari has participated in some bilateral meetings with a number of leaders of other countries’ delegations and heads of International Development organisations.
He has met with the President of Burundi, Evariste Ndayishimiye, held a meeting with Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Director-General of the World Trade Organisation and also attended the UN Food Systems Summit.
The Nigerian leaders also held a bilateral meeting with Her Majesty, Maxima Zorreguieta, Queen of The Netherlands and participated in a hybrid High-Level event, tagged “Transformative Actions for Nature and People”.
