President Muhammad Buhari on Friday returned to Abuja after attending the United Nations Environment program in Kenya.
A press statement from the presidency had said president Buhari would travel to London for a medical check up after the Kenya program.
The statement stated that Buhari would spend two-weeks in London for a medical check-up.
In his congratulatory message to the Special Session to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the United Nations’ body on Thursday in Nairobi, Kenya, Buhari reiterated Nigeria’s commitment towards addressing the devastating effects of climate change.
He said, “During last year’s COP26 in Glasgow, Parties worked towards spurring action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also pledging to take steps to adapt to climate impacts.
“Nations are constantly facing the threats of disrupted weather patterns, low food production and rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding among other challenges.
“In that regard, Nigeria pledged to work with other countries in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and in doing so has increased her conditional contribution to reducing greenhouse gas from 45 per cent to 47 per cent.
“I take this opportunity to urge redoubled collective efforts to improve and sustain climate action, nature action, chemical and pollution action, air, bio-safety, disasters and conflicts, green economy, gender, oceans and seas, resource efficiency, water, and youth education in order to save our planet and achieve the 2030 agenda on sustainable development.”
