President Muhammadu Buhari, is expected to receive the President of the United Nations General Assembly, PGA, Ms. Maria Espinosa, who is paying a one-day official visit to Nigeria, on Monday.
Espinosa’s Spokesperson, Ms. Monica Gravley, announced this at a Media briefing, at the UN Headquarters, in New York, United States of America, on Friday.
According to her, the PGA’s visit to Nigeria, is part of her eight-day official trip to Central and West Africa, beginning on Friday.
The Spokesperson did not disclose the agenda of the PGA’s meeting with the President, when asked by the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.
Rather, she promised to keep Reporters updated on the proceedings, at the meeting.
Gravley said that the cabinet members will join Buhari in receiving the PGA, who will later meet with Students of the University of Abuja.
Espinosa is expected to speak on the role of multilateralism, and how to respond to global challenges in a fast-changing world, according to the Spokesperson.
Gravley disclosed that Espinosa will also meet with UN Officials in the country, and take part in a discussion with women, on their role in promoting multilateralism.
Multilateralism is an alliance of several nations, for example, the UN, pursuing a common goal.
It seeks to bind powerful nations, discourage unilateralism (one-sided action), and give small powers a voice and influence they could not otherwise exercise.
However, the system is facing several challenges, especially the dominance of world powers, such as the United States, in terms of military and economic might.
