The Senior Special Assistant to the Nigerian President on Sustainable Development Goals, Princess Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire will in July present to the United Nations the progress and status report on the implementation of the SDGs in the country. This presentation will be done during the 2017 High Level Political Forum under the auspices of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN-ECOSOC) in New York. The high-level political forum provides a platform for partnerships among major groups and relevant high-level international stakeholders. Luckily, Nigeria is one of the few countries selected to make formal presentations this year.
Speaking on the report Nigeria will present, the Media Assistant to the Senior Special Assistant, Mr. Desmond Utomwen revealed that it will highlight current implementation progress and status, some of the good practices, lessons learnt so far in trying to accelerate implementation, challenges faced and areas that require urgent and sustained attention, while making efforts to foster inclusion. It will also outline the current policies and strategies, key successes recorded so far on the efforts and existing partnerships for accelerating the achievement of the Goals.
Hopefully, Nigeria is able to achieve all 17 SDGs by 2030.
