President Muhammadu Buhari will next week lead the Federal Government delegation to New York where he would address the 71st regular session of the United Nations General Assembly on September 21, 2016.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, who said this on Friday in Abuja, explained that the President would use the opportunity to build on his excellent relationship with other world leaders and demand the recovery of illicit and looted funds.

According to him, the FG would canvass for the election of an Afro-centric UN Secretary-General, who would be pro-developing countries.

He stated that Buhari would also push for the candidature of Nigerians into various international agencies which he said had influence on UN policy and programmes globally.

Onyeama said it was absolutely important that Nigeria engaged in multilateral relations, noting that it had candidates for positions in International Civil Aviation Authority and the United Nations Human Rights Council.
