President Muhammadu Buhari will leave today for the 5th United Nations Conference on Least Developed Countries (LCDs) in Doha, the capital city of Qatar.
A statement by the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, says the President’s visit follows an invitation by the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.
Buhari attended the UN Conference on Least Developed Countries in Qatar.
The conference, which is from May 5 to March 9 2023, under the theme: “From Potential Prosperity”, is held once a decade and provides an opportunity to garner the support of the international community for accelerating sustainable development in the LDCs as well as assist them in making progress towards achieving prosperity.
In Doha, President Buhari will reinforce Nigeria’s commitment to supporting the most vulnerable countries to meet their development challenges, highlighting areas where the Nigerian government has provided them various assistance over time.
As most of these countries struggle to find sustainable solutions to the challenges of poverty, adverse effects of climate change, food and energy crises, and high debt burden, President Buhari will vigorously reiterate the need for sustainable solutions for countries facing these severe challenges. The Summit will be attended by world leaders, the private sector, and civil society and youth organisations.
The conference is aimed at Underdeveloped nations.
The statement says the conference aims to share developmental ideas and mobilise political will, solidarity, action and solutions to transform the LDC by finding sustainable solutions to the challenges of poverty, food insecurity, hunger, weak or non-existent infrastructure, inadequate health facilities, and climate change, as they struggle to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
