Buhari Returns, To Address Nigerians On Independence Day

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday returned to Nigeria after attending the 70th United Nations General Assembly in New York.A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, confirmed his arrival and added that the President “will on Thursday, October 1, 2015, make a nationwide broadcast as part of programme of activities to mark Nigeria’s 55th Independence Anniversary.
“The broadcast will take place at 7am.
“All electronic media stations are kindly requested to join the network services of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) for the broadcast”, the statement added.
President Buhari on Tuesday highlighted the roles required of UN member states in order to stop violent extremism and the threat posed by terror groups in Middle East and Africa.
He noted that Boko Haram regained strength after it declared its allegiance to the Islamic State, adding that the group’s recruitment has expanded to the Sahel region and encouraging activities of Boko Haram.
President Muhammadu Buhari reminded UN member states that “groups like al-Qaeda and ISIL express their anger when people feel that injustice and corruption leaves them with no choice of improving their lives”, adding that “the international community will be required to disrupt illicit financial flows from nations with weak anti-theft structures to other parts of the world” insisting that “where such funds are identified, the victim states should be helped to recover them expeditiously”.
He made this known while speaking on a panel on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism chaired by United States’ President, Barrack Obama, at the 70th United Nations General Assembly.
