Tinubu slashes delegation to UN general assembly

According to a statement released by Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), the decision “is part of a broader effort to reduce the cost of governance in Nigeria”.

The statement added that to prevent any sharp practice in this regard, the U.S. Mission in Nigeria “is accordingly guided on official visa processing while Nigeria’s Permanent Mission in New York is further directed to prevent and stop the accreditation of any government official who is not placed on the protocol lists forwarded by the approving authority”.
