By Omeiza Ajayi

ABUJA—Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari’s presentation at the 72nd United Nations General Assembly UNGA, particularly his advocacy for the rights of minorities in Myanmar.


In a statement issued yesterday in Abuja by his Media Office, Atiku, however, urged Nigeria under Buhari to set the pace for the world to follow.

“It is also right that Nigeria, through President Buhari, drew the UN’s attention to the sufferings of Myanmar’s Rohingya people, cited by the UN as perhaps the world’s most persecuted minorities.

“The Waziri Adamawa stressed that minorities all over the world deserve the cooperation of majority groups. In addition to calling attention to this, the former Vice President says he is convinced Nigeria will also provide the world a good example in the way we treat our minority groups,” Atiku said.
