The governing All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari’s showing at the United Nations 74th General Assembly in New York.
The party which described Buhari’s address at the event as inspiring, said he had restored the battered international image of Nigeria.
APC stated this in a statement Tuesday night by its national publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu.
He said, “We particularly commend the president’s call for strong action against xenophobia, racism, poverty, climate change, international crimes terrorism and other forms of threat to life.
“From our previously battered international image, it is a thing of immense pride that Nigeria under the President Buhari-led APC administration is being restored to its respectable standing among the committee of progressive nations.
The theme of the 74th UNGA is “Galvanising multilateral efforts for poverty eradication, quality education, climate action and inclusion”.
According to the ruling party, a stable and developed Nigeria is needed to effectively support global efforts in combating and seeking solutions to equally global threats and challenges that we face.
Issa-Onilu went further to say, “While the administration works to rebuild the economy, empower our citizens through social investments, curb corruption, check terrorism and other crimes, the President Buhari administration has demonstrated its solid commitment to the principles of the United Nations as regards mutual cooperation and partnership with member nations.
“The ongoing implementation of the National Social Investment Programme which seeks to build an inclusive society has economically touched the lives of many Nigerian households who before the pro-poor scheme, lived on the margin.
“Also, the administration’s diversification drive has benefitted previously and typically marginalised groups i.e. women and youth through participation in growing and support sectors such as agriculture and solid minerals.”
