Recall that in his speech to UNGA 76, the Nigerian leader focused on the recent trend of an unconstitutional takeover of power in West Africa and called on the world to show its disapproval.

The president affirmed Nigeria’s support to efforts by ECOWAS, AU and the UN to address this growing challenge.
Buhari also had held bilateral meetings with a number of world leaders, delegations and heads of International Development organisations.
The Nigerian leader met with the President of Burundi, Evariste Ndayishimiye, held a meeting with Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Director-General of the World Trade Organisation and also attended the UN Food Systems Summit.
