President Muhammadu Buhari has accepted an invitation from the United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. Ban Ki-moon to a meeting of world leaders in New York which is expected to formulate a fresh plan of action against extremism.

President Barack Obama and President Francois Hollande of France are also expected to participate in the September 28 meeting which will, among other things  deliberate on a new United Nations draft resolution on combating extremism worldwide.

Mr. Ban Ki Moon also invited President Buhari to a meeting of a select group of 25 World leaders in New York on September 27 to deliberate on a global climate change agreement.

In offering the invitations Monday in Abuja, the Secretary-General  said they were in recognition of the political will demonstrated by President Buhari in combating terror in Nigeria and dealing with environmental issues.

Mr. Ban Ki Moon applauded moves by the Buhari Administration  to clean up  Ogoniland  and promised the full support of the United Nations for the exercise.

“We will find ways to complement your leadership on environmental reform.  We are happy with your plans for the  restoration of Ogoniland and we will see how we can help,” the UN Secretary-General assured President Buhari.

He said that the UN will welcome President Buhari’s “input and experience” in finalizing plans to introduce a new resolution against extremism at the General Assembly.
