President Muhammadu Buhari returned to Abuja after his engagements at the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, USA, on Saturday morning, a day ahead of schedule. News Agency of Nigeria reports that the president was initially scheduled to return to Abuja on Sunday morning at about 7.00a.m.
However, the presidential aircraft carrying the president, his aides and some members of his entourage landed at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja early Saturday morning. NAN gathered that the president’s decision to return home was informed by the fact that he was able to complete all his official engagements in time. The president, who left Abuja on Sept. 22 for New York, participated actively in the main and high side events of the UNGA74.
NAN reports that the first official engagement of Buhari at the UNGA74 was on Monday in New York where he addressed the United Nations Climate Action Summit with the theme, “A Race We Can Win. A Race We Must Win.”
At the event, Buhari announced robust plans and initiatives by his administration to reverse the negative effects of climate change in Nigeria.
