ban ki moon in nigeria

The United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, has called for the unconditional release of the over 200 girls abducted in their school in Chibok, Borno State last year and other abductees of the Boko Haram sect.

Mr. Moon made the appeal while addressing State House correspondents shortly after having a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The UN scribe is on a 2-day official visit to the country.

Mr. Moon commended President Buhari who he said had embarked on an agenda for change with security and war against corruption as priority.

“When you change Nigeria, you have also changed Africa.” He said.

President Buhari said the discussion was on the difficult time Nigeria had found itself.  He said the step was taken so that the UN could assist the country.

He thanked Ban Ki-Moon for extending invitation to him to attend the UN General Assembly holding in New York on September 27 and 28.
