President Muhammadu Buhari’s reported entourage to New York is the fewest ever.
Buhari will be attending the 70th United Nations General Assembly with only about 21 delegates.

Governors of Kaduna, Niger and Cross River states, former governors Rotimi Amaechi and Kayode Fayemi; senator from Katsina, Hadi Sirika and a former member of the House of Representatives, Abike Dabiri.
