President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday addressed world leaders in New York, calling for debt cancellation of poor countries.

Speaking at the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Buhari said developing countries were facing numerous challenges, including being able to service external debts.

He asked the world leaders to address what he described as the burden of unsustainable external debts.

Buhari told the world leaders that he would be addressing the diplomatic community as President for the last time, underpinning that by this time next year, Nigeria will have a new president representing her.

He vowed to entrench a process of free, fair, transparent and credible elections through which Nigerians elect leaders of their choice.

The President, who reiterated his commitment to constitutional limit, said Nigeria has stood for democracy and the rule of law as a country and in the sub-region in countries such as The Gambia, Guinea Bissau, and the Republic of Chad.
