President Buhari seeks expansion of Security Council during UN speech

President Muhammadu Buhari has advocated the reconstitution and expansion of the membership of the Security Council of the United Nations which currently has 15 member states with only five world powers as its permanent members.

Advocating a reformed and more equitable UN Security Council representative of the global community in New York, Buhari said Nigeria had contributed its quotas to the implementation of UN’s mandates.

The President also advocated international cooperation towards accelerating the recovery efforts of Lake Chad Basin, and collaboration against illicit financial flows across borders as well as other forms of corruption within countries.
