Femi Adesina, a Nigerian journalist, is the special adviser on media and publicity to Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari. This is an official statement from him. The headline might have been adjusted.

President Muhammadu Buhari Monday in New York paid a courtesy call on President of the 74th United Nations General Assembly, 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.

“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,” the President said.

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.”
