SPEECH ON FILM (TRANSCRIPT)
SEQ. 4: SHAGARI: "Nigeria is gravely concerned that while two thirds of mankind is living in poverty, while fellow humans in Southern Africa are oppressed, humiliated and totally deprived of economic and political self-determination, because of the colour of their skin, the super-powers are engaged in competitive arms build up thereby threatening world peace and harmony. The maintenance of world peace is crucial to all countries of the world and I enjoin all men of good will to condemn unequivocally this arms build up and its consequential effect of generation of global tension and ill will. The super-powers must dismantle the deadly arsenal which they have stock-piled so as to remove the threat of war."
