Buhari travels to New York for the 77th UN General Assembly
Today (Sunday), President Muhammadu Buhari will leave Abuja for New York, New York, to attend the United Nations General Assembly, the yearly gathering of world leaders (UNGA77).

This occurs as Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who was scheduled to represent Nigeria at various events during Queen Elizabeth II's State Funeral, left Abuja for London yesterday.

A watershed Moment: Transformative Solutions to Interlocking Challenges is the topic of the 77th session, which began on Tuesday, September 13, according to a statement released yesterday by Mr. Femi Adesina, the President's Media Adviser.

The announcement listed important issues that will be covered at this year's UNGA, such as the conflict in Ukraine, the energy crisis, climate change, containing the COVID-19 pandemic, and a special summit on transforming education.

In the release, it was revealed that President Buhari would speak on the second day of the general debates on September 21. The Nigeria International Economic Partnership Forum (NIEPF), hosted by Nigeria in collaboration with the Business Council for International Understanding (BCIU), and Strengthening Coordination through National Humanitarian Development Peace (NHDP) Framework: A practical approach to sustainable durable solutions to ensure no one is left behind, hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, are just a few of the high-level meetings and side events in which the President will take part. While in New York, the president will also have important bilateral meetings with international leaders, eminent financiers, and the CEOs of multinational corporations. The First Lady, Aisha Buhari, as well as a few governors, ministers, and senior government officials are in the president's entourage.

The president is anticipated to return to the nation on September 26.

Additionally, Vice President Osinbajo left Abuja for London yesterday in order to represent Nigeria at the State Funeral for Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.

The vice president will attend the ceremonies, including the funeral service scheduled to take place at Westminster Abbey, along with members of the Royal Family, world leaders, including Commonwealth Heads of State, Governors-General, Prime Ministers, and foreign royal families, according to a statement released by his media assistant, Mr. Laolu Akande.

Osinbajo would be among the guests and dignitaries King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla will host at a reception in Buckingham Palace today, prior to the service.

The vice president would meet privately with James Cleverly, the foreign secretary of the UK.

The Commonwealth's Head of State and the longest-reigning British monarch was Queen Elizabeth II.

On September 8, 2022, at Scotland's Balmoral Castle, she passed away at the age of 96.

Osinbajo will likely return to Abuja following the state funeral on Monday.
