President Muhammadu Buhari will deliver his speech before the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, September 24, Per Second News gathered in New-York.

Several prominent leaders delivered in-person addresses at the U.N. General Assembly meeting on Tuesday, including President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, president of Ghana, Andriy Rajoelina, president of Madagascar, President Julius Maada Bio of Sierra Leone and President Gnassingbe Faure of Togo will address the UN Wednesday.

Many leaders are opting to use prerecorded video, as was done last year, or to have a lower-ranking representative speak in person, and the absence of a particular country’s leader this year can send a message.

His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President, Republic of Uganda, His Excellency Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, President and Head of State, Republic of Equatorial Guinea , His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Forces, Republic of Kenya and South Africa’s president are all sending a (pre-recorded) speech.

Perhaps the most prominent leader to skip a personal appearance at the General Assembly is President Xi Jinping of China.

Mr. Xi originally intended to have his deputy prime minister represent China, but in a last-minute change posted Monday by U.N. officials, Mr. Xi send a pre-recorded President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia will not attend either, and his foreign minister, Sergey V. Lavrov, will speak instead.

Iran’s new president, Ebrahim Raisi, also sent a prerecorded speech, skipping the opportunity for personal diplomacy that could help save Iran’s near-moribund nuclear agreement with major powers.
