"Misplaced priority!!"

Presidency shares what Buhari will be remembered for, sends message to UN

In another report, the chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Gambari, has told young citizens that they are fortunate to be Nigerian.

While addressing members of the Legislative Mentorship Initiative (LMI) on a learning visit to the state house on Sunday, November 6, Gambari said the country deserves a permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council.

According to him, Nigeria is projected to be the third most populated nation in the world after India and China by 2050, and this should be a yardstick for inclusion.
