You’re Respected Worldwide, Ban Ki-Moon Tells Buhari

Ban Ki-moon


THE United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for his war against corruption and terrorism. He also told Buhari that leaders across the world respect him for giving Nigeria a positive image.

Buhari’s Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement quoted Ban Ki-Moon as saying this during a bilateral meeting with the President on the sidelines of the 71st UN General Assembly in New York. The UN scribe said, “You are highly respected by world leaders, including myself. Your person has given your country a positive image.”

He said the UN recognised the achievements of the Buhari administration against Boko Haram, urging that human rights be upheld always, to prevent a repeat of the scenario being witnessed in Syria.

Ban Ki-moon also thanked the Nigerian leader for his commitment to issues on climate change, adding that the government should “own the Sustainable Development Goals,” for the good of its citizens. – Punch

  1. That comment by SA, Femi Adesina is only a claim and has not correlation with true possibility. First by saying that Ban Ki moon compared Nigeria with Syria, these are totally opposite type of Govt. except if Ban Ki Moon is comparing Buhari to Bashar Al Assad as both Dictators.
    If the image of Nigeria has improved worldwide, why have we not seen it reflect. It pains my heart to see that the most populous black race nation in the world that has produced ground breakers is only lead by a purported SSCE Holder in a country of over 2m PHD and professors.
