Buhari misses UN’s Boko Haram meeting

Buhari misses UN’s Boko Haram meeting

PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI WAVES AS HE DEPARTS THE UMARU MUSA YAR’ADUA AIRPORT, KATSINA ON THURSDAY (24/9/15) FOR NEW YORK TO ATTEND THE 70TH SESSION OF THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

President Muhammadu Buhari and his delegation were not present at a United Nation’s meeting to discuss and proffer solution to the problems of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

The United Nations, Chad, Niger and Cameroon appealed on Friday for help for millions of people in the Lake Chad Basin region forced to flee the violence of Boko Haram and hit with repeated droughts and floods that have brought malnutrition and disease.

US and European Union diplomats said they were disappointed that Nigeria did not attend the event chaired by United Nations aid chief Stephen O’Brien on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
