Buhari hails Amina Mohammed for reappointment as UN Deputy Sec.-Gen.

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated UN Deputy Secretary General Amina Mohammed on her re-election for a second term.

In a congratulatory message from his press aide, Femi Adesina, on Tuesday in Abuja, the president assured Mohammed of the prayers and support of Nigerians, especially the Federal Executive Council, where he served for some years.

The President expressed his deepest gratitude to the Secretary General of the UN, Antonio Guterres, for the trust placed in the former Minister of the Environment, giving her another opportunity to serve the world body and humanity, “which further enhances the voice and the presence of Nigeria. ”

According to President Buhari, Mohammed’s dedication to duty has always been exceptional, and his interest in improving people’s lives, through personal and institutional efforts, continues to shine.

She stated that the UN Under-Secretary-General had continued to be an inspiration to many women in Nigeria, Africa and the world community.

The president joined family, friends and associates of the renowned technocrat and diplomat to celebrate the well deserved re-election, wishing her all the best on the next rung of the leadership ladder.

Nigeria’s NAN news agency reports that in June 2021, Secretary General António Guterres requested Amina Mohammed to serve as Deputy Secretary General for a second term.

Prior to her appointment in 2017, she was Nigeria’s Minister of the Environment under the Buhari presidency.

She also served as special advisor to Ban Ki-moon on post-2015 development planning, which focused on the 2030 agenda for the sustainable development goals.
