LAGOS, Nigeria (AA) - Nigerian President Muhammed Buhari hailed the reappointment Tuesday of a female former minister from the country as UN deputy secretary-general.

"(Amina) Mohammed’s dedication to duty has always been exceptional. The UN Deputy Secretary-General remains an inspiration to many women in Nigeria, Africa and the global community," said Buhari.

He commended UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for the confidence placed on the former minister and reiterated the support of Nigeria for the UN chief and the UN community.

Buhari's spokesman, Femi Adesina, said Mohammed’s reappointment to a second term was a reward for her dedication.

Mohammed, a diplomat and politician, was minister of environment under Buhari from 2015 to 2016.

She was first appointed deputy of the global body in 2017.
