War against terror: Obama, Ki-Moon, Buhari, Hollande meet Sep 28


President Muhammadu Buhari has accepted an invitation from the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General, Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, to a meeting of world leaders in New York, the United States (U.S.) which is expected to formulate a fresh plan of action against extremism.
President Barack Obama of U.S. and President Francois Hollande of France are also expected to participate in the September 28 meeting which will, among other things, deliberate on a new United Nations draft resolution on combating extremism worldwide.
Ban Ki-Moon also invited Buhari to a meeting of a select group of 25 World leaders in New York on September 27 to deliberate on a global climate change agreement.
In offering the invitations on Monday in Abuja, the Secretary-General said they were in recognition of the political will demonstrated by Buhari in combating terror in Nigeria and dealing with environmental issues.
Ki-Moon applauded moves by the Buhari administration to clean up Ogoniland and promised the full support of the UN for the exercise.
“We will find ways to complement your leadership on environmental reform. We are happy with your plans for the restoration of Ogoniland and we will see how we can help,” the UN Secretary-General assured Buhari.
He said that the UN will welcome Buhari’s “input and experience” in finalizing plans to introduce a new resolution against extremism at the General Assembly.
