Minister for Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama has said that the Nigerian Government would use the Forum of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) to seek global support fighting terrorism and increasing Foreign Direct Investments (FDI).
Onyeama made this known on Tuesday in Abuja during a Pre-UNGA briefing with newsmen stating the expectations of the Nigerian government during the high level summit from Sept. 17 to Sept. 30.
According to Onyeama, Nigeria would take advantage of its position as President of the 74th UN General Assembly to project the country and articulate priorities of the country, what t seeks to achieve and areas for global support.
He said that President Muhammadu Buhari will be lead the Nigerian delegation which would include Members of his cabinet and some Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to ensure Nigeria have the best technical resources.
Onyeama listed other priority issues of the country to be discussed at the summit to include: issues of Peace and Security, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG ) which covers socio-economic, education, humanitarian issues regarding child’s right.
Other issues are: poverty eradication, illicit financial flows, recovery of stolen assets,
“More strategically as a country, it is an opportunity to project our country as an important member of the international community.
“And having the Presidency of the General Assembly is something that also gives us that higher visibility and great influence.
“We would also want to use that to push agenda of importance to us as a country, our fight against corruption, repatriation of foreign loots, engaging with other countries.
“In our quest to successfully deliver on SDG objectives that cover our social economic challenges, terrorism, and countering violent extremism.
“Is also something we would want to maintain at the highest levels of global priorities because it is our major challenges.
“Mr President has just come back from a summit of ECOWAS Heads of States on Peace and Security in the West Africa Sub-region so this is still a challenge that we are facing.
“And it is important to use that opportunity to keep the global community engaged and supportive of what we are doing, our fight.
“And also taking the opportunity to a greater United Nations for support in that fight against terrorism but also in the global conflicts taking place in Africa,” Onyeama said.
Onyeama said tha Nigeria has been very present in Peace Keeping interventions across the continent under the framework of the African Union.
He added that with such large troops from Nigeria it was important to have financial and other support from the UN peace keeping division.
The Minister said that President Buhari would also be having bilateral meetings with some Heads of States and engaging with different personalities like Bill Gates to discuss attracting FDI.
Onyeama explained that the Foreign revenue streams of the Country expected hence, the need to diversify to attract more Foreign Direct Investment into our country.
He said that Nigeria would also be soliciting support of the UN to recharge the Lake Chad which has shrunk by 90 per cent and has affected the source of livelihood of people living across the region.
Onyeama added that Nigeria will use the opportunity to canvass support for a number of Nigerians and the country itself vying for certain international position, engage with countries to try to get their support so that the nation can deliver on the positions.
“For instance, Nigeria is keen to be elected into a category of the International Maritime Organisation.
“We didn’t make it the last time round, so we are persisting this time and with the challenges that we have, maritime challenges, we feel that it is important that we be on the governing bodies for regulating maritime issues.
“We are also vying for a position on the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO, we are vying for a seat under part two on the International Civil Aviation Organisation Council.
“We have a candidate that we are pushing to be on the Committee Against Torture, we also have a candidate that we are pushing for election to the United Nations Committee on Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.
“So, we will be taking advantage of our presence there during the General Assembly to also lobby for these positions,” Onyeama said.

Hungary to launch national consultation on measures to restart economy
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced on Friday that a new national consultation would be launched in Hungary on a range of issues relating to the novel coronavirus epidemic and measures to restart the economy.
Orban said that most of the questionnaires were ready and they would be sent by post to every citizen, adding: “I ask everyone to complete it and return it.”
Regarding the Hungarian economy, he said if the implementation of the special measures planned to restart the economy were successful, Hungary would not only get out of 2020 well, but might have a fantastic year in 2021, without giving further details.
The Hungarian government sends out questionnaires to the population for “national consultation” on a regular basis, on subjects such as immigration or the protection of families, which might affect the general public.
According to official figures, the total number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Hungary stood at 3,841 on Friday, with 2,024 recoveries and 517 fatalities.
Hungarian football fans to be allowed into stadiums
Hungarian football fans will be able to return to reopening stadiums, but only under strict precautionary measures, the Hungarian Football Federation (MLSZ) informed here on Thursday.
“Fans can return to the stands if the organizing club decides to take the opportunity and keep certain restrictions and precautions. Spectators can be admitted to football matches again from Thursday, based on the government’s decision,” MLSZ wrote in a statement published on its website.
“With regard to the stands, the government decree lays down rules for Hungarian clubs. An important element of this is that only one in four chairs can be used. Social distancing has to be kept at all points, especially points of entries, buffets and restrooms,” the MLSZ added.
“In order to protect the health of players, the strict regulations and mandatory tests applicable to them will remain in force,” the MLSZ underlined.
This means that the so-called sports zone, such as the immediate surroundings of the field, is subject to the same strict regulations as in the past, while only persons whose participation is essential to the match and who possess a recent negative coronavirus test can enter the area.
Hungarian football started again on May 23, but so far all matches have been held behind closed doors. The next open game will pit Kaposvar against ZTE on Friday night.
According to official figures, the total number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Hungary stood at 3,816 on Thursday, with 1,996 recoveries and 509 fatalities.
Hungary reopens border with Slovenia for local citizens
Hungary and Slovenia eased coronavirus border restrictions on Thursday afternoon, Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto said on his Facebook page.
“Citizens of both countries will be able to cross the border without quarantine and other restrictions from today afternoon,” he said in a video message following a joint press conference held at the Dolga Vas-Redics border crossing with Slovenian Foreign Minister Anze Logar.
“The pandemic showed how closely interdependent we, the nations of central Europe, Slovenes and Hungarians are,” Szijjarto said.
“During this difficult period, the two countries strengthened their friendship, strategic alliance and cooperation.”
The move came two days after the opening of Hungary’s borders to citizens of Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Last week, the border crossings between Hungary and Romania were also reopened.
Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic reopen common borders
Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic will reopen their respective borders to each other’s citizens at midnight on Tuesday for stays of no more than 48 hours without quarantine, Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto said on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
“Over last night and this morning I agreed with my Czech and Slovak counterparts to allow Hungarian, Slovak and Czech citizens to stay in their countries without a quarantine stay of no more than 48 hours, effective from midnight,” Szijjarto said in a video message recorded while in a visit in Romania.
On Monday, Hungary announced the opening of its border with Serbia, following last week’s opening of the border with Romania.
“From Tuesday, we are opening all railway and road crossings with Germany and Austria, as well as the Hrensko river crossing, and we are abolishing comprehensive border controls,” Czech Interior Minister Jan Hamacek said on Monday in a statement, adding that proof for a negative COVID-19 test will still be mandatory and border checks will be random.
Crossing borders in non-designated areas will still be prohibited until June 13, and the external borders of the Schengen area will be closed until at least June 15, Czech media reported.
Meanwhile, the German government is planning to lift a travel warning for tourists for 31 European countries from June 15, ending an unprecedented directive against all international travel, German news agency DPA reported on Tuesday.
Alongside Germany’s 26 fellow EU member states, the warning will also be lifted for Britain and the four non-EU members of the borderless Schengen area — Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein — according to a draft policy proposal seen by DPA.
The German warning against all foreign travel is to be replaced by advice tailored to the risks in individual countries, the report said.
Hungarian gov’t aims to lift coronavirus state of emergency on June 20
The Hungarian government aims to end the state of emergency it had introduced in response to the novel coronavirus outbreak on June 20, Justice Minister Judit Varga said on Tuesday.
“A bill calling on the government to end the state of emergency will be submitted to Parliament today,” Varga wrote on her Facebook page. “With the adoption of the act, the state of emergency is expected to end on June 20 in Hungary, much earlier than in many European countries,” she added.
Hungary has performed well in an international comparison, she said, and also completed successfully the first phase of defense, which she argued was due to the introduction of a special legal order, which allowed the government to act quickly and effectively against the pandemic.
The Hungarian government declared a state of emergency in response to the coronavirus outbreak on March 11. On March 30, Parliament granted special powers to the government of Prime Minister Viktor Orban to battle the novel coronavirus.
During the state of emergency, the government governs by decrees. Elections, by-elections and referendums are not permitted throughout the emergency period.
“In recent months, the Hungarian government has been attacked with baseless allegations, but the misleading information about us has proved to be false again,” Varga said.
She also said that she expected those who falsely accused the Hungarian government to present apologies: “We expect those who have attacked us with unjust political accusations to apologize for leading a slander campaign instead of cooperating in defense.”
According to official figures, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Hungary stood at 3,771 on Tuesday, with 1,836 recoveries and 499 fatalities.
Hungary reopens border with Serbia for local citizens
Hungary reopened its borders with Serbia on Monday and is making preparations to open them with Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, said the country’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto.
“On Monday, from 10 a.m., citizens of the two countries can cross the border without restrictions,” Szijjarto announced on his Facebook page.
“Serbian citizens can enter Hungary without a quarantine obligation and Hungarian citizens can return from Serbia without quarantine obligations as well,” he said.
“The opening of the border provides an opportunity for families and communities living on both sides of the border to reunite, and also contributes to a new impetus for economic relations,” the minister underlined.
Szijjarto also spoke about preparations being made to reopen Hungary’s borders with Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
“I discussed with my Austrian, Czech and Slovak counterparts in a video conference on the easing of border restrictions,” Szijjarto said.
The four countries have set on June 15 as the target date for starting to lift border restrictions, the minister said, adding that this depended greatly on the status of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Hungarian schools allowed to reopen from June 2 with restrictions: official
Schools in Hungary will be allowed to reopen from June 2, but only for small groups or for individual consultations, a government official said on Thursday.
In an interview given to public radio MR1, Hungarian State Secretary for Public Education Zoltan Maruzsa said that the digital education introduced in mid-March due to the novel coronavirus epidemic would continue until the summer break.
“However, the rigid ban which was introduced on March 14 will lift on June 2 so that where needed, small group or even individual consultations, or sessions for catching up will be permitted,” the State Secretary said.
“Teachers and heads of institutions should consult with parents,” Maruzsa added.
He underlined that children will not be required to attend school, but cautioned that the opening could help a lot for those who for some reasons could not get into digital education.
According to official figures, the total number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Hungary stood at 3,641 on Thursday, with 1,509 recoveries and 473 fatalities.
Hungary reopens border with Romania
Hungary reopened all of its border crossings with Romania and will start talks to reopen its borders with Slovenia, official sources informed here on Thursday.
“On May 21, 2020, from 06:00 a.m. Hungarian time, all Hungarian-Romanian border crossing points operated before the emergency will reopen,” the Hungarian national police announced on its official website.
“Transit opportunities have been expanded for Romanian citizens transported by cars, buses and mini-buses, who travel by plane from Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport, or their aircraft arrives in Hungary and they travel home by car,” the police said in a statement.
Drivers and their passengers arriving for the above purpose shall be exempt from official home-quarantine upon entry. During their trip, they can stop at the designated refueling stations and rest areas in Hungary only when absolutely necessary, according to the statement.
Hungary also aims at reopening its borders with neighboring Slovenia, as negotiations on the opening of the Hungarian-Slovenian borders will begin shortly, Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto announced on his Facebook page on Thursday.
The minister said that Hungary was interested in a reasonable easing of the restrictions at the borders, and the Slovenian and Hungarian police chiefs would start negotiations on the details of the border opening.
Hungary closes two controversial transit camps for asylum seekers
Hungarian Government on Thursday said it was closing two controversial transit camps where asylum seekers were held in shipping containers surrounded by high fences and barbed wire.
According to right-wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s chief of staff, Gergely Gulyas, the approximately 280 people in the Roszke and Tompa camps have already been taken to other facilities for asylum seekers.
Budapest has come under fire from Brussels for its hard line migration approach, which has been repeatedly challenged before the Luxembourg-based European Court of Justice.
Gulyas said the government did not agree with the court’s ruling but was however complying with it.
