    The UNGA should help us defeat insurgency in Nigeria by mobilising the Security Council to intervene especially the Boko Haram

    All I want buhari to address at the UN is the economy situation and pleading with the world economy to come help us in diversification of economy by aiding us with technology expertise required

      The world cannot help us if we don’t help ourselves first. Buhari is there for the betterment of Nigeria, as well as other leaders too.

    Why can’t Osinbajo be representing Buhari in engagements like this? Buhari is old and should not be stressing himself traveling around.

      That’s not possible else you want people to start saying Mr president isn’t capable, which will lead to unhealthy controversy for the president. He has the strength to attend public functions, let him keep going

    I hope Buhari will represent the interest of all Nigerians and not the interest of somebody Nigeria
