According to the Presidency, President Muhammadu Buhari will leave Nigeria on Saturday to attend the 5th United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LCDs) in Doha, the capital of Qatar.
The official journey was made in response to an invitation from the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, according to a statement from the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
Shehu claims that the conference’s theme, “From Potential to Prosperity,” would run from March 5 to March 9.
He continued by saying that the event, which only occurs once every ten years, offers a chance to enlist the assistance of the international community in order to advance sustainable development in LDCs and help them move closer to reaching prosperity.
In a ferocious confrontation, troops kill robbers and rescue 14 people in a hamlet near Kaduna.
Part of the statement states, “In Doha, President Buhari will underline Nigeria’s commitment to assisting the most vulnerable nations to overcome their development difficulties, emphasizing areas through which the Nigerian government has supplied them with different types of aid throughout time.
“The Nigerian leader will vehemently reiterate the need for sustainable solutions for countries facing these severe challenges,” reads a statement from the Nigerian government. “As most of these countries struggle to find sustainable solutions to challenges of poverty, adverse effects of climate change, food and energy crisis, as well as high-debt burden, among others.
The LDCs are battling to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, and the President further said that it intends to exchange developmental ideas and mobilize political will, solidarity, action, and solutions to transform the LDCs.
Shehu continued, listing the issues that need to be resolved as poverty, food insecurity, hunger, a lack of or poor infrastructure, subpar medical facilities, and climate change among others.
“Several Ministers and senior government officials are part of President Buhari’s group, and they want to take advantage of the trip to sign various agreements and Memorandums of Understanding with the Qatari government.
The president is anticipated to return to the nation on March 8th, according to the presidential spokesperson.
