President Muhammadu Buhari has charged the international community on the need for various countries of the world to band together to tackle the major threats facing mankind.
President Buhari gave the charge on Thursday at a ceremony for receiving Letters of Credence, hosted at the State House in Abuja.
He said most countries of the world are facing a range of crises, including terrorism, insurgency, displacement of persons, and climate change, reiterating that the growing challenges pose a real threat to human existence.
According to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Mr. Femi Adesina, the President urged diplomats to work towards building stronger relations, with a focus on providing joint solutions to rising human and natural challenges.
The President received letters of credence from High Commissioner of The Gambia, Mr Mohamadou Musa Njie, Ambassador of South Korea, Mr Kim Young-Chae, Ambassador of Slovak, Mr Tomas Felix, High Commissioner of Australia, Mr John Gerard Donnelly, High Commissioner of Bangladesh, Mr Md. Masudur Rahman and Ambassador of Guinea Bissau, Dr Jaao Ribeiro Butiam Co.
“I would like to lay emphasis on the need for us to come together to address and overcome our common challenges. Terrorism, insurgency, displacement of persons, climate change, population explosion, human trafficking, corruption, poverty, and proliferation of small arms and light weapons are all either the sources of conflict or results of it.
“These challenges, though on diverse scales, threaten the existence of humanity and human relations. These challenges underscore the need for the international community to work together to collectively identify appropriate measures to globally overcome these challenges,’’ he said.
