The United Nations Secretary-General, Mr Ban Ki-moon, will visit Nigeria from August 23 to 24 and will meet with President Muhammadu Buhari and State Governors.

Talks during the meetings with the nation’s leaders would focus on “Pathways to a new Nigeria-Role of Sub-National Governments”.

Mr Ki-Moon will also lay wreath to commemorate the 4th Anniversary of the attack on the United Nation’s House, in Abuja and embark on a field visit to Kuje Area Council.

During the two-day visit, he will also hold dialogue and lunch with Nigerian Business actors under the theme “The role of Nigerian Business and Economy in Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and addressing Climate Change”.

The UN Secretary-General will further hold talks aimed at deepening Nigeria’s democracy with government officials on the theme “Democracy, Sustainable Development, and Countering Violent Extremism”.

The highpoint of Mr Ki-moon’s visit will be his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, which will be rounded off with a joint press conference.

There will also be a dinner hosted by President Buhari in honour of the esteemed guest.

Mr Ki-moon’s visit is coming in the month that Nigeria is presiding over the UN Security Council and most African countries have said they would leverage on the opportunity to present security challenges facing some African countries. They expect to get the Council’s support in addressing the challenges.

On Wednesday, the UN called for support for nearly 1.5 Internally Displaced Persons in Nigeria’s north-east, as a result of terrorists activities. (Channels TV)
