Vice President Yemi Osinbajo Inaugurates Presidential Council On SDGs
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday, inaugurated the Presidential Council on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Osinbajo, in his speech, stated that council’s work will be crucial for resource mobilisation, prioritisation of interventions, periodic assessment, as well as the overall oversight of SDGs implementation.
“Success with the implementation of the SDGs will have an impact on our cities, and on the quality of the lives of those who live within them,” Osinbajo said.
While noting that achieving the SDGs would mark a quantum socio-economic leap for Nigeria, Osinbajo urged all stakeholders to stay committed and work together to achieve the SDGs, as failure to achieve them will have grave implications for many generations.
“We are, therefore, in a real sense, a generation at the threshold of history, saddled with the responsibility of bringing about the change that will alter our development trajectory for the benefit of our people and planet,” the Vice President added.
