Junketing Buhari jets out to Qatar for UN conference

The Nigeria President, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) is set to depart Nigeria to attend the fifth United Nations conference on least developed countries (LDCs).

The presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, made this known in a statement signed and issued out by his ministry saying Buhari will leave on Saturday for the conference holding in Doha, Qatar capital, from March 4-9, 2023. He said the visit follows an invitation by Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar.

It was also noted that the president is expected to be back in Nigeria, on the 8th of March, 2023.

The statement reads, “The conference which is from 5th to 9th March, 2023 under the theme: ‘From Potential to Prosperity’ holds once in a decade and provides an opportunity to garner the support of the international community for accelerating sustainable development in the LDCs as well as assist them make progress towards achieving prosperity,” the statement reads.

“In Doha, President Buhari will reinforce Nigeria’s commitment to support the most vulnerable countries to meet their development challenges, highlighting areas through which the Nigerian government has provided them with various forms of assistance over time. As most of these countries struggle to find sustainable solutions to challenges of poverty, adverse effects of climate change, food and energy cr#sis as well as high-debt burden among others, the Nigerian leader will vigorously reiterate the need for sustainable solutions for countries facing these severe challenges.

“The Summit will be attended by world leaders, the private sector, civil society and youth organisations. It aims to share developmental ideas and mobilize political will, solidarity, action and solutions to transform the LDCs, by finding sustainable solutions to the challenges of poverty, food insecurity, hunger, weak or non-existent infrastructure, inadequate health facilities, climate change among others as they struggle to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.”
