Every September, world leaders and dignitaries from around the world gather in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly “General Debate.”  where the president/leader of each UN member state addresses the assembly on issues relating to his/her country and the world at large.

President Muhammadu Buhari addressed the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly few hours ago, and his speech covered various issues relating to the environment, terrorism, and corruption. We live tweeted the session and below are few tweets we curated from his speech and the reactions that followed;


While he was speaking his new media team was also working…

So what do people think about the speech? Apparently views vary. For some people, he made great points…

While for others, it wasn’t enough…


Surprisingly there was even a fake speech that was circulated on social media even before the President spoke…


Nigeria’s participation at this year’s UNGA hasn’t ended though as this side event organized by the Nigerian delegation will be holding on Thursday, 21st September

President Buhari will also be meeting with President Trump and other dignitaries in course of the week.
