The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Friday congratulated the United Nations World Food Program on winning the 2020 Nobel Prize for Peace.

His congratulatory message was contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, titled ‘President Buhari congratulates UN World Food Program on 2020 Nobel Prize for Peace’.

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari congratulates the United Nations World Food Programme on winning the 2020 Nobel Prize for Peace”.

President Buhari believes that the award is a well-deserved honour for the frontline UN agency at the forefront of addressing hunger and promoting food security.

“The President notes that the award, coming on the heels of the event commemorating the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, will continue to spur the women and men of the WFP working in very difficult terrains to continue to respond to the numerous challenges facing the world.”
