The Nigerian president had asked Ban Ki-moon to mediate between the Federal government and Boko Haram in swapping the abducted Chibok schoolgirls with detained terrorists.
Ban Ki- moon said the UN recognized the achievements of the Buhari administration against Boko Haram, urging that human rights be upheld always, to prevent a repeat of the scenario being witnessed in Syria.
Ban Ki-moon also thanked the Nigerian leader for his commitment to issues on climate change, adding that the government should “own the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” for the good of its citizen.
