President Buhari is in New York, for the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly with the theme Building Resilience Through Hope – To Recover from COVID-19, Rebuild Sustainably, Respond to the Needs of the Planet, Respect the Rights of People and Revitalise the United Nations. President Buhari is scheduled to speak by 2pm, he is to address the 76th Session of the high-level General Debate of the UN General Assembly at the UN headquarters in New York on Friday.
He is not doing the speech alone in Africa, but countries leaders like The Gambia, South Sudan, Republic of Benin, Senegal, and Germany would also be delivering their speeches. Buhari has not been idle in New York since he arrived a few days ago, he has met with several leaders of countries which include that of the Netherland, President of Burundi, Evariste Ndayishimiye, Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Director-General of the World Trade Organisation, and others. This speech to be delivered by President Muhammadu Buhari should be an opportunity for him to demand the two most important things needed by Nigeria as follows.
1. He should ask for more arms from the UN to fight terrorism.
President Muhammadu Buhari should use the opportunity to ask for more arms from the UN so that countries who are willing to sell firearms to Nigeria to fight terrorism will signify and enter a bilateral agreement. It is no doubt that the fight against terrorism in Nigeria can only be maintained when we have enough firearms that are superior to that of the terrorists.
2. He should ask for more loans.
Some Nigerians might disagree, but it is a fact that it is through loans that infrastructure in Nigeria can be developed. Through other loans that have been received by his administration, the railway sector has been revamped, roads constructed and other facilities provided.
