You Are Respected Everywhere, Ban Ki-moon assures Buhari

The United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for his war against corruption and terrorism. He told Buhari that leaders across the world respect him for giving Nigeria a positive image.

President Buhari’s Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, in a statement quoted Ban Ki-Moon as saying this during a bilateral meeting with the President on the sidelines of the 71st UN General Assembly in New York.

The UN scribe was quoted as saying: 
"You are highly respected by world leaders, including myself. Your person has given your country a positive image."

He said the UN recognised the achievements of Buhari administration against Boko Haram, urging that human rights be upheld always, to prevent a repeat of the scenario being witnessed in Syria.

Ban Ki-moon also thanked Buhari for his commitment to issues on climate change, adding that the government should “own the Sustainable Development Goals,” for the good of its citizens.
