Nigeria’s UN Mission Embarrasses President Buhari

This source told SaharaReporters by phone that “if I had to say it, many members of the [official Nigeria] delegation are not happy. Could things have been better organized? Yes.” SaharaReporters has also spoke with other members of the delegation who place these blunders on the shoulders of the Nigerian Mission to the UN and Ambassador Joy Ogwu for not adequately briefing the President or coordinating his visit.


Nigeria’s notorious Permanent Mission to the United Nations, lead by Ambassador Joy Ogwu, has reportedly mismanaged President Buhari’s official schedule resulting in several missed opportunities and embarrassing moments for the President and his official delegation.

Early Saturday Reuters news agency reported that Nigeria had no official representation at a High Level Meeting on insecurity and displaced people in the Lake Chad Basin region. Nigeria was the only major player not present during the meeting, which was organized by the United Nations Under-Secretary for Humanitarian Affairs Stephen O’Brien, which resulted in international diplomats to say they were disappointed in Nigeria’s conduct.

A Nigerian official speaking on the condition of anonymity with a SaharaReporters correspondent on Saturday said that “at the very least the National Security Adviser should have been present at the meeting.” The NSA Major General (Rtd) Monguno is attached the President Buhari’s official delegation.

The Cable reported today that President Buhari “was also prevented from meeting with Pope Francis because he was not properly briefed by the Nigerian UN mission staff.” READ MORE HERE
