President Buhari Gets Special Honors In The U.S


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday received double honours as the State of New Jersey and City of Philadelphia gave him special citations in New York.

Buhari had made a presentation at the ‘High-Level Roundtable on Corruption, Migration and Bridging Africa’s Infrastructure Gap’, a programme on the margins of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly.

After his presentation, Diane Campbell, representing Sen. Turner of New Jersey, then stepped forward and read a citation of Buhari, acknowledging his military, professional and political strides.

The Nigerian leader, who was surprised and least expected the honour at such a high-level meeting, stood straight and still, as the hall erupted in an applause.

The Chairman, Nigerian Coalition for Business Development and Investment, Dr Jude Iheoma, also read a citation of Buhari on behalf of the City of Philadelphia.

Present to witness the honour were international investors and captains of industry, Ministers, Directors-General and Dr Ibrahim Mayaki, Chief Executive Officer of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) International.

Mrs Gloria Akobundu, head of NEPAD Nigeria; Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, former Minister of External Affairs; and top senior government officials from Nigeria were also present at the event.

Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, in a statement on the unexpected honours bestowed on the Nigerian leader said: “Truly, nothing succeeds like success”.
