Tinubu will speak at the General Assembly during the current 78th UNGA.



On Sunday, Tinubu landed in New York and was welcomed by Amb. Yusuf Tuggar, the foreign affairs minister.

At the 78th session of the high-level General Debate of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), which is now taking place at the UN headquarters in New York, Nigeria’s President Bola Tinubu is scheduled to address international leaders.

According to the UN correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Tinubu would address world leaders on Tuesday in his debut appearance before the Assembly.

The Nigerian president would deliver his statement around 6.00 p.m.(11.00 p.m. Nigerian time) to the world leaders.

He will address to the theme of the 78th session of the UNGA: “Rebuilding Trust and Reigniting Global Solidarity: Accelerating Action on the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals towards peace, prosperity, progress, and sustainability for all.”

The topics of sustainable development, climate change, international collaboration, the need to confront inequality, and international humanitarian crises will all be covered in Tinubu’s speech.

According to NAN, Tinubu arrived in New York on Sunday and was welcomed by the country’s ambassador to the UN, Tijani Muhammad-Bande, the foreign minister, and Maj.-Gen. Dangana Allu, the country’s defence attaché in Washington, D.C.

Instead of the customary practise of officials lining up at the airport to see the president, Tinubu was welcomed instead.

Only three officials met the president at the airport this time; the other Nigerian officials were waiting for him in the UN Plaza Millenium Hilton Hotel.

Nigeria’s ambassador to the United States, Amb. Uzoma Emenike, the consul general of Nigeria in New York, Amb. Lot Egopija, and the consul general of Nigeria in Atlanta, Amb. Amina Samaila, were present to greet him.

Umo Eno, governor of the Akwa Ibom State, is one of the others. Others are governors Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Uba Sani of Kaduna, Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe, and AbdulRahman AbdulRasaq of Kwara.

The Nigerian president is scheduled to be the fifth African leader to speak on Tuesday, according to NAN, and has already attended the SDGs submission and other events that were held in conjunction with the occasion.
