Treat minorities well: Atiku tells Buhari

Reacting to President Buhari’s address to the United Nations General Assembly, Atiku said that minorities all over the world deserve the cooperation of majority groups
In a statement from his media office in Abuja, Atiku said President Buhari did the right thing by drawing the UN’s attention to the sufferings of Myanmar’s Rohingya people, cited by the UN as perhaps the world’s most persecuted minorities.
He congratulates President Muhammadu Buhari on a successful outing at the 72nd Session of United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday the 19th of September, 2017.
