Shehu said, “I cannot tell you the time he will be going because it can change but I know he is expected to be the eighth speaker at the UN. So, he will be there and he will speak.”

 

Other leaders that had been listed to speak at the assembly include that of the United States, Brazil, Guinea, Jordan, Switzerland and Slovakia.

If Buhari eventually makes the journey, it will be his first official outing since he returned to the country from London after medical vacation.

He had been delegating vice president Yemi Osinbajo on most of the public fucntions.
