The presidency has confirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari has been scheduled to address the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly in the United States.
The UNGA is taking place on Tuesday, September 19, 2017.
Buhari is listed as number seven on the provincial list of speakers.
He is expected to speak after the leaders of Brazil, the United States, Guinea, Switzerland, Jordan and Slovakia.
Last week, news broke out of the president’s trip to the US, but the presidency quickly debunked it, saying that it was untrue.
However, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu has confirmed to Punch that Buhari would attend the UN General Assembly.
Shehu said, “I cannot tell you the time he will be going because it can change but I know he is expected to be the eighth speaker at the UN. So, he will be there and he will speak.”
