Former Vice President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on a successful outing at the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, the United States (U.S.) on Tuesday.
Atiku aligned with the President’s message of gratitude to the international community for their efforts in the Lake Chad Region which has helped bring succour to Nigerians affected by the scourge of terrorism.
The former Vice President, according to a statement in Abuja by his media office, said: “It is also right that Nigeria, through President Buhari, drew the UN attention to the sufferings of Myanmar’s Rohingya people, cited by the UN as perhaps the world’s most persecuted minorities”.
The Waziri Adamawa stressed that minorities all over the world deserve the cooperation of majority groups.
In addition to calling attention to this, the former Vice President said he was convinced that “Nigeria will also provide the world a good example in the way we treat our minority groups”.
“It is my sincere desire that arising from President Buhari’s speech, the UN will increase its support to Nigeria and her neighbours in the Lake Chad Region as we redouble our efforts to rid the region of the scourge of terrorism and restore peace and prosperity to a once thriving zone”, he said.
