President Buhari has admitted that his administration cannot handle the corruption its promised during its campaign back in 2015, as well as combat COVID-19, terrorism and other challenges without concerted international response.
Buhari said this at an event to receive Letters of Credence of the new Ambassadors of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Argentina at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
With this, the President restated the need for the international community to collectively and frontally confront the COVID-19 pandemic and other common challenges affecting the globe, saying that the challenges are common with other nations. “We have common challenges that impact so much on our countries, which include Terrorism, Insurgency, Climate Change, Population Explosion, Human Trafficking, Corruption, Poverty, and Proliferation of Small Arms and Light Weapons”, he said.
“On top of all these, the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has come with different strains that pose an additional challenge to the initial outbreak. These challenges underscore the need for the international community to work even more in concert to collectively identify appropriate ways and means to globally resolve these challenges”, he added.President Buhari also expressed his admiration for the cooperation that Nigeria and the other three countries have enjoyed in other fora. “All three countries represented here to enjoy excellent multilateral relations with us. In addition to the United Nations, the largest multilateral umbrella platform, we are also members of the G-77 and the South-South Cooperation which Nigeria, Argentina, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia have used to advance our collective interests and causes. Nigeria is proud to be associated with these platforms, for they have enabled us to work closely together with the Principal Representatives of these countries.”
