Tinubu to UNGA: Africa doesn’t wish to replace old shackles with new ones

President Bola Tinubu gave his inaugural address at the United Nations General Assembly in the small hours of Wednesday, in which he championed the need for Africa to surmount foreign exploitation to attain prosperity through democratic ideals.

“As for Africa, we seek to be neither appendage nor patron. We do not wish to replace old shackles with new ones,” he said during his address on the first day of the 78th session of the assembly held at the UN Headquarters.

He spoke to foreign leaders of government just hours after similar speeches by US Vice President Joe Biden and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The President talked on the topic ‘Rebuilding Trust and Reigniting Global Solidarity: Accelerating Action on the 2030 Agenda and Its Sustainable Development Goals Towards Peace, Prosperity, Progress, and Sustainability for All’.

Many declarations have been made, but “our problems remain close at hand,” according to Tinubu.
