The president also thanked the United Nations for its assistance in Nigeria's battle against Boko Haram.

Mr. Buhari similarly praised the worldwide community for delivering security and humanitarian assistance in the Sahel and Lake Chad regions, which have been ravaged by terrorism.

"We shall also cooperate in addressing the growing transnational crimes such as forced labour, modern day slavery, human trafficking and cybercrime".

Buhari commended UN's role in settling thousands of innocent civilians caught in conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Buhari says the worldwide community needs to work together to stop Islamic State extremist fighters from infiltrating into areas of Africa's Sahel region where "response capacity is weak".

The special goal entity making the acquisition will be called Pangea and receive about 600 billion yen in loans, the person said. In July, Toshiba's business partner Western Digital filed an injunction with a US court to block sale of the memory arm.

Buhari while speaking said Kim Jong Un's " accelerated nuclear programme" is "the most pressing threat to global peace and security today".

He noted that "in all these crises, the primary victims are the people, the most vulnerable being women and children".

The president who took a slight turn from Trump's veiled threat to Kim Jong Un's country asserted that the UN Security Council must use "all necessary pressure and diplomatic efforts" to ensure a "peaceful resolution of the crisis". He proposed for a strong United Nations delegation, from all regions of the globe to negotiate with the North Korean authorities. The United States is ready, willing and able but hopefully this will not be necessary.

The Nigerian delegation is expected to also canvass the support of United Nations member states for the Buhari administration's efforts towards combating illicit financial flows to foster sustainable development.
