The event, which took place at UN headquarters in New York on Wednesday, also served as the official inauguration of the Alliance for Poverty Reduction, an initiative of the President of the General Assembly, Prof. Tijjani Muhammad-Bande.

Buhari, in a statement Wednesday by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, also expressed concern that 10 percent of the world’s population were classified as living in extreme poverty. He said a large percentage of Nigerians lived in various stages of poverty and that the prospect of the population sliding further into extreme poverty was real.
