Nigeria unopposed for presidency of the 74th UN General Assembly (UNGA)
Nigeria remains unopposed in its bid for the presidency of the 74th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
Mohammed-Bande, a Professor of Political Science and former Director-General of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), formally announced his bid in New York on Saturday.
An informal interactive session with candidates for the position is scheduled for Monday also in New York, and would be webcast through UN WebTV
Earlier in a letter to member states of the Assembly, Espinosa explained that the informal dialogues were aimed at “contributing to the transparency and inclusivity of the process’’.
This, she said, is in line with Resolution 71/323 of the General Assembly, and gives candidates the opportunity to present their vision statements and plans for the future presidency.
All 193 members of the United Nations are members of the General Assembly, with the addition of Holy See and Palestine as observer states
It is the main deliberative, policy-making and representative organ of the UN.
