President Muhammadu Buhari arrived in Abuja on Friday, after attending the United Nations Environmental Programme in Nairobi, Kenya.
He was initially scheduled to proceed to London for a medical check-up after the event in Kenya, as contained in an earlier press statement.
While in Kenya, Buhari participated in the Special Session to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the United Nation’s body.
“As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of UNEP’s existence, we laud the efforts of UNEP and encourage broader action to overcome climate change, biodiversity, rising levels of pollution and waste being three major crises threatening our planet,” Buhari said.
Buhari also met with the Executive Secretary of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) in Nairobi, Ibrahim Thiaw.
During the meeting, the president directed collaboration between the Ministries of Environment, Water Resources, Agriculture and Rural Development and Power to combat desertification.
