President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday paid a courtesy visit to the President of the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Prof. Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, telling him that he bears a heavy weight on his shoulders and that Nigeria was solidly behind him in the onerous task.

Muhammad-Bande, a Nigerian diplomat, was earlier in the year unanimously elected President of the General Assembly for one year.

Buhari who is currently at the ongoing 74th edition of United Nations General Assembly, paid the UNGA president a visit at his office in New York.

He told him that he bears a heavy weight on his shoulders and that Nigeria was solidly behind him in the onerous task.

“I sincerely congratulate you. Your election was well received by the whole world. It was a unanimous support, and the global community received you well. That support puts heavy weight on you, and I wish you well,” Buhari said.

Responding, Prof. Muhammad-Bande said he was delighted to receive the Nigerian President, “along with your team of professionals and politicians.”

He added: “Your nominating me for this position is the greatest honour I can have. The support from Africa and the world has been outstanding so far.”
