President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday received the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres at the State House in Abuja.
Guterres had arrived in Nigeria on Tuesday on a two-day official visit to Nigeria.
The UN chief had after his arrival visited Borno State where he proposed the reintegration of repentant terrorists. According to him, this is key to the restoration of peace in the North East region.

The Nigerian President thanked the UN boss for the visit, noting that it came at a time when the world is focussing on the Russia/Ukraine crisis.
Buhari said the visit underlines the assurance that the world is with Nigeria.
On his part, the UN scribe called for developed nations to ramp up vaccine support to countries in the global north, halt the asymmetrical distribution and reform the global financial system.
