On Monday President Muhammadu Buhari called for equal representation in the Security Council of the United Nations.

According to a statement released by Femi Adesina, his special advisor on media and advertisement, the President made an appeal when he joined other world leaders at a virtual event to celebrate the UN's 75th anniversary.

He also highlighted the contributions of Nigeria at the UN since the nation formally joined the organisation in 1960.

President Buhari said:

“The demand for the reform of the United Nations Security Council is just and a place for Africa in the very strategic organ of the organisation is long overdue.

“In our collective effort to rebuild the United Nations of our dream, Nigeria reaffirms her commitment to upholding the principles of the United Nations including: human rights, peace, and security, as well as democratic governance.

“I, therefore, reiterate Nigeria’s rededication to multilateralism and the rules-based international system.

“It is my hope that this anniversary will encourage us to respond to the numerous challenges we face and support efforts aimed at building the United Nations system we desire.”
