Politics / World Sustainable Development Goals Organization Calls For New Approach To Achie by Daudupress: 12:57pm On Mar 04
World Sustainable Development Goals Organization calls for new approach to achieving SDGs in Africa

An international NGO, World Sustainable Development Goals Organization, worldsdgs.org, has called for a new approach in achieving and enhancing the implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals across the globe with a bias in Africa.

The Member, Advisory Council and the Acting Director incharge of Africa, World Sustainable Development Goals Organization, Alhaji Yahya Muhammad made the call during the organization’s weekly TV project on Wtv with the theme: Actualizing SDGs.

Alhaji Yahya who made the call on Wednesday 7th of February, 2024 while discussing goal 3, Good Health and Well-Being on the Television program stated that the implementation of SDGs is very low and not down to grassroot.
“We understand that we have Senior Special Assistants, SSAs, on SDGs to the President, Governor and local government chairmen. But in my own opinion, I think that’s the reason why we are not seeing the required result.

“Now that constitutionally, we don’t have the office of the First ladies, talking about the President, Governors, Chairmen, and all their wives are known for NGO related projects. Why don’t World leaders look inward and create the SDGs office in all these tiers of government to be held by the wives of our governors, chairmen, and the wife of the President with a statutory allocation. This is the only way we can have the required result across the globe, especially Africa.

“These women went out during campaigns just as their husbands did, why then should they be relegated behind the bar after victory? They should be actively involved in governance. There should be all inclusivity”.

While speaking on the organization, he has this to say, “World Sustainable Development Goals Organization was established under the United Nations Article 7 in the UN Charter in 1945 to support the UN’s initiative in dealing with humanitarian issues, UN- Global Goals, issues of crisis, and conflicts resolution.

“We have trained 200 Philippines on website design, we have been doing a TV awareness project on SDGs for the past 2 years in Nigeria, we have also training alot of people on Photography skill, we have done lots of school sensitization projects across all the goals.

“As I speak with you, next month, March 2024, we would be training 500 liberians on digital skill. This is in line with goal 1 of the SDGs. Even the president is aware of the project.

“We are doing a lot perhaps because we are spread across the continents. Our Board of Trustees and Advisory Council cuts across all the continents of the World.

“We are doing well and we will continue until we have a better world for all”, he added.

While reacting to the award, Ismaila Hussaini encouraged Nigerian youth and the Coalition of the Nigerian Youth on Safety and Security Affairs to be resilient, focused, and hungry in achieving greater heights.
"You guys are doing great, however, we need to engage our youth. When you live in a society like ours and leave the youth redundant, you literally stand a chance to continuously fight crime, that's why we need reorientation and create useful platforms to be used as channels to engage the youth.

"However, I am so proud of myself as a Nigerian and the younger generation. You guys are intelligent and resilient. An average Nigerian youth want to be successful in every endeavor they find themselves irrespective of the part of the world they are in. That's what describes a Nigerian.

"Despite we understand that the government and the society at large are not creating enough enabling environment and creating a wide range of orientation and reorientation to let people see the potentials in themselves, especially the youth, I still admonish the younger generation to be resilient because Nigeria is a great nation and as citizens, we are all image makers of the country and it should be known by who we are, what we do, our contribution to global development and our roles in the security of lives and property.

"Recapping my statement, I want to personally beg all of you and encourage you all to keep up the good work.
I tell you for free for me, security is everyone's business and the agenda that drives the inspiration of what you guys are doing should be beckoned on national interest.

"You people have dedicated your time towards this agenda, and then, we cannot speak less of you, other than to encourage you all".

"Our VISION is to build a complementary and effective youth super-structure to collaborate with the security outfits of Nigeria to combat the rising security challenges across the country, while achieving improved security of lives and properties in all communities of the Nation. And in achieving the aforementioned, we have a MISSION of sensitizing the Nigeria Youth towards placing greater focus on and owing up Security Matters as a major community responsibility, and bridging the widening relationship gap between the youths and the nation's security architecture. Our major GOAL is to reduce crime among the Nigerians".

Politics / Eid-ul-maulid: Edoh Distributes 5k Each To 200 Youths Urges Them To Believe In.. by Daudupress: 12:34pm On Sep 29, 2023
Eid-ul-Maulid: Edoh distributes 5k each to 200 youths urges them to believe in Renewed Hope Agenda

The United Nations Habitat Ambassador to Nigeria, His Excellency Dr. Raymond Edoh has charged Nigerian youths to keep faith alive in the Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as he distributes five thousand naira each to two hundred youths pointing out that the birth of Prophet Muhammad calls for the show of love to neighbors irrespective of religion, tribal, political differences.
"What matters most is that we are all humans", he said.

Edoh who gave the charge in Lagos State during a delegation youth meeting he had with youths across the entire Local government Councils of Lagos state today, Wednesday with the theme: Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu: Youths are not left Out", in honour of the birth of Prophet Muhammad stressed that the birth of Prophet Muhammad calls for celebration, love and a renewed hope for Nigeria especially to the youth constituency even as he disclosed that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR mean well for Nigeria and Nigerians.

In his opening remarks, he has this to say,
"Eid-ul-Maulid, also known as Mawlid al-Nabi or simply Mawlid, is celebrated to commemorate the birth of the Prophet Muhammad. The word "Mawlid" translates to "birth" or "birthday" in Arabic, while "al-Nabi" means "the Prophet."

"The significance of Eid-ul-Maulid varies among different Islamic traditions and cultures. Some Muslims consider it an important observance and celebrate it with great joy and reverence, while others do not observe it as a religious holiday at all. The celebration of Eid-ul-Maulid is more commonly practiced in some Muslim-majority countries, particularly in parts of Africa, the Indian subcontinent, and Southeast Asia.

"For those who observe Eid-ul-Maulid, it is a way to express love, respect, and gratitude towards the Prophet Muhammad and to remember his life, teachings, and contributions to Islam. This day is often marked by special religious gatherings, processions, recitation of poetry and hymns, storytelling about the Prophet's life, and lectures or sermons that highlight his virtues and teachings, all of which we are doing here this morning.

"Muslims who commemorate Eid-ul-Maulid often engage in charitable acts, such as giving to the poor and needy, organizing events to feed the hungry, or donating to charitable causes. It is also a time for personal reflection, self-improvement, and reaffirming one's commitment to following the example set by the Prophet Muhammad.

"Overall, the significance of Eid-ul-Maulid lies in honoring and remembering the life and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad and promoting unity, love, and compassion among Muslims. It serves as a time for reflection, spiritual growth, and the rekindling of faith.

Prophet Muhammad emphasized the importance of treating neighbors with kindness, respect, and compassion. He provided numerous teachings and examples that highlight the significance of good neighborly conduct. Here are a few notable statements attributed to the Prophet Muhammad regarding neighbors:

"Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him treat his neighbor well." (Sahih Bukhari)

"This hadith underscores the connection between faith in Allah and treating neighbors well. It encourages Muslims to recognize the importance of good conduct towards neighbors as an integral part of their religious beliefs.

"The best companion in the sight of Allah is the best to his companion, and the best neighbor in the sight of Allah is the best to his neighbor." (Sunan Ibn Majah)

"In this statement, the Prophet Muhammad emphasizes that being a good neighbor is highly regarded by Allah. It implies that treating neighbors well is not only a social obligation but also a means of attaining closeness to Allah.

"He who believes in Allah and the Last Day should do good to his neighbor." (Sahih Muslim)

"This hadith urges Muslims to engage in acts of kindness and service towards their neighbors. It emphasizes the importance of practical deeds that benefit and support neighbors in their daily lives.

"By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe!" It was asked, "Who is that, O Messenger of Allah?" He said, "One whose neighbor does not feel safe from his evil." (Sahih Bukhari)

"This hadith highlights the severity of neglecting the rights of neighbors. The Prophet Muhammad states that a person who fails to ensure the safety and well-being of their neighbors cannot be considered a true believer.

"These teachings demonstrate the Prophet Muhammad's emphasis on treating neighbors with kindness, care, and consideration. Muslims are encouraged to establish strong bonds with their neighbors, support them in times of need, and maintain harmonious relationships based on mutual respect and cooperation.

"Inasmuch as we are here all gathered to celebrate, and show solidarity in the Tinubu led government, please I urge us the youths to go back to our places and show love to our neighbors. Some of our neighbors don't have food, transport to work, and several others, please check on them and show love according to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad.

"One other way we can also show love by extension is by believing in the Renewed Hope Agenda. Doing so means showing love for this country and it's components like the economy, the leadership of the country, and several others. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has this country and the youths of this country in mind. In a no distance time, policies and programs that would be rolled out will convince us all.

"Let's please give him the necessary support and also ensure that we engage in legal activities and business to protect the image of the nation locally and international ", he urged

Hence, we see the need to have, from us, the Minister for Youth, preferably our own, the youth political commander who led us in the campaign and electioneering war to success in the person of Comrade Aminu Aminu, the National Coordinator Grassroot Mobilization for Asiwaju (GMA 2023), which is the only coordinating body that immediately after seeking the blessings of the current Minister of Defence, the then Governor of the State and Regional Coordinator Tinubu/Shettima of the 19 Northern States, sworn into Actions by Mobilizing, promising young, vibrant, energetic and talented youth to support and rally round Asiwaju and Shettima across the 19 Northern States until victory was achieved.

"This includes those young politicians who do not even support APC, these and many other efforts were made with the notice of all of the Security Agencies such as, Police, DSS, NCSCD, and the Immigration Service among others.
These security agencies are fully aware of Comrade Aminu Aminu's tremendous contributions before, during and after the 2023 elections.

"Using his experience as the Former National President National Association of Jigawa State Students NAJISS 2004, the most popular NANS Presidential Aspirant in 2007/2008, Youths' Leader and Coordinating Officer PDP Presidential Campaign Council Goodluck/Sambo 2015 under the leadership of Abdullahi Maibasira, acted as Secretary Jigawa State Buhari/Osinbajo Presidential Campaign Directorate led by its Director, Senator Tony Nwonye.

"Additionally, During the 2023 election Campaign, Comrade Aminu Aminu worked under Four current ministers whom he believed would assist the Government in delivering excellent governance to Nigerians.

These ministers include;

1. H.E Muhammad Badaru
Abubakar MON, Mni, Grand Patron (GMA 2023), Honorable Minister of Defence
2. Imaan Suleman Ibrahim (ICC Special Duties), Honorable Minister of State Police Affairs.
3. Barrister Bello Muhammad Goronyo (PCC Youth Mobilization Committee), Honorable Minister of Water Resources and Sanitation.
Dr Mariya Muhammad, Honourable Minister of State FCT.

"He further Served in Seven (7) different Presidential Campaign Council Committees at the National, Zonal and State levels. Aminu did not lobby for any of the Committees to be coopted, rather he has been identified based on his hard work, commitment, resilience, dedication, honesty and transparency in political struggles.

"After he was convinced to support Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Aminu Aminu wrote a book entitled: "101 Fundamental Reasons for Supporting Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu" which was submitted to the Coordinator of the 19 Northern States Muhammad Badaru, the current Minister of Defence. Aminu worked with the hitherto Secretary of Data/Management Committee, APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC 2023), Malam Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi CCIE, Director General National Information Technology Development Agency NITDA and with the support of the first daughter of the President, Folashade, the former Governor of Jigawa State and the current Governor Malam Umar Namadi, Aminu Aminu with his team of Professionals and experienced former NANS Leaders at various capacity stormed every nook and cranny of Jigawa state and solicited for the supports of the people in the State for Tinubu/Shettima and Danmodi/Roller as President, Vice-President and Governor, Deputy Governor respectively in the 2023 general elections.

"After sinking his resources by providing a befitting Regional Office of the 19 Northern States in Dutse, the Capital of Jigawa state, which was commissioned for use by the current Jigawa Governor Malam Umar Namadi, Aminu went ahead and sponsored the training of over 5,000 Women in various fields trade such as make-up, cooking, tailoring among many others

"He also did the renovation of mosques, helped the needy etc.
Aminu further Sacrificed his cars for the campaign rallies within and outside the State.

"Your Excellency Sir, had you been aware of the calibre of the political environment Aminu was able to survive, and the risks he undertook, you would surely have encouraged this young man by rewarding his loyalty, steadfastness and massive political contributions to the overall success of the APC in Jigawa and beyond, with the Minister of Youth to fill the remaining ministerial vacancy.

"We urge President Tinubu to consider the young politician, Comrade Aminu Aminu, who hailed from Sara Town of Gwaram Local Government area, the most Populated Local government in Jigawa State the minister of youth of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

"This will no doubt, rekindle our hope and strengthen the belief we long held that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a grass-root politician.

"It will similarly serve as an energy booster to the Nigerian Youth, taking into cognizance, the unprecedented attachment of the gentleman (Comrade Aminu Aminu) to the Nigerian youth."

According to him, the mandate of NASENI is to make sure that Nigeria produces most of the goods and services it currently imports of which Nigeria has the capability to produce locally, thus developing the country’s economy and creating jobs for millions of Nigerians.

“I want us to work on -government-to-government level on new initiatives we embark on. We want a relationship that is beneficial to our country. We have a lot of companies we are reaching out to. We want to work with the Czech government and companies. We want them to come here and start producing and domesticating technologies. We want to industrialize Nigeria.

“We want Czech companies to come and invest here in Nigeria and have partnership with us,” Gwandu said, adding that NASENI is working on new initiatives that would accelerate Nigeria’s industrialization and would partner companies from the Czech Republic and other countries ready to set up factories and industrial bases in Nigeria.

“We await your new initiatives. In our country, we have a grant agency and a technology agency responsible for scientific cooperations and also the Academy of Sciences which will be beneficial to you.

“We have about two or three companies that are ready to work with you and three universities working with tropical agriculture. I think they deserve your cooperation,” he said, adding that they are ready to work with NASENI to make the new initiatives fruitful.

Politics / Int'l Youth Day: Un-habitat Amb. Dr. Raymond Edoh Task Youth On Skills by Daudupress: 11:48pm On Aug 12, 2023
...says youth are the live wire of every economy

The United Nations Habitat Ambassador to Nigeria, and Life member,
International Chartered World Learned Society, USA, has called on the youth globally to be skill minded and as well as been hardworking pointing out that no economy strives without the youth.

Dr. Raymond Edoh made the charge in a statement he signed today 12th August 2023 to commemorate international youth Day which was made available to journalists by his Executive Media Assistant, Mr. Emmanuel Daudu in Abuja-Nigeria.

According to the statement, Edoh stated and reaffirmed that the government can not provide all the jobs needed by the youths stressing that even if the government was able and did provide, the economy will suffer setbacks because civil service doesn't to a large extent make the production of goods and services a priority. The government only makes the environment conducive for such to be initiated and strives within the atmosphere of good economic policies, programs, security, electricity, infrastructure, and a sound transportation system.

The Statement also tasked the federal government of Nigeria to make the environment conducive for youths in the country to engage in profitable and legal businesses and provide achievable windows for skills acquisition noting that until the government motivates the youths and they feel they belong they can't make the country proud and as well metamorphose to economic growth.

The statement which reads in parts, "International Youth Day is an annual event that occurs on August 12th. The occasion is intended to raise awareness and drive action on a range of issues affecting youth globally. One of which is unemployment. We understand that we especially in Africa have this issue of unemployment, we have through activism engaged the government at various levels on this issue of unemployment and it's not working based on sundry factors what I have resolved to do is to tell our co-youths the truth by moving toward skills acquisition. That's the way out.

"Youths should consider solving problems through skills as the way out to better their lives and grow the economy. Though the government must come in by providing a conducive environment and creating rooms where some skills can be acquired freely through government scholarships and several degrees of empowerment.

"Regards the Nigerian government, we call on the federal government to include the youths on their list of priorities by making policies and programs that would empower the youths available and easily accessible to them.

"It's no doubt that this government is for the youths and assuredly we are optimistic that our interest is captured.

"Recently, the SGF, Sen. George Akume assured us of the Tinubu-led government to be a youth-friendly government and we have started seeing that evidently and we want to thank the President, H.E. Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his kind gestures towards the youths and I plead him to keep the good work going", Edoh added.

Politics / Ministerial Appointment: Group Urges Tinubu To Consider Dr. Raymond Edoh by Daudupress: 7:10pm On Aug 10, 2023
...Controversy as Dr. Raymond Edoh not appointed Minister

The internal crisis in Benue state has continued to muscle up over ministerial slot.
In the words of Thomas Paine, "He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."
Similarly, Ronald Reagan once said, "Our Founding Fathers well understood that concentrated power is the enemy of liberty and the rights of man...."
"We must recognize that we can't solve our problems now until there is a radical redistribution of economic and political power.... a radical restructuring of the architecture ...."- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Earlier, last week, Former Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, led some stakeholders of Idoma extraction under the algae of Coalition for the Survival of Nigeria, CSN, to address a press conference where they expressed misgivings over the inclusion of a Tiv man, Professor Joseph Utsev, as the ministerial nominee from Benue state which is a contrary norm in the state because a Tiv man in the person of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Former Governor of Benue State, Sen. George Akume is already a portfolio holder in the same government. It was expected of him, Sen. George Akume to have played kindly and judiciously nominate an Idoma person for a ministerial appointment knowing fully the funneled precedence that has been established and carefully followed for decades in the Benue State Politics.

According to the former Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Igbeh, Sen. George Akume under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has
marginalized the Idoma race in the scheme of things in Benue state, calling on the federal government to critically look into it as a matter of urgency, to maintain the already established precedence by nominating an Idoma man for the ministerial slot especially since he has an Idoma son in his political camp in person of Dr. Raymond Edoh, a loyal party boy who is making Nigerians and the good people of Benue State proud both from home and abroad.

Similarly, on Thursday, Benue State Inter-tribal Association in Politics, BSITAP, an umbrella body for inter-tribal political disputes in Benue State, distanced itself from a Tiv nomination for ministerial appointment, insists on Idoma person for Minister under the Bola Ahmed Tinubu's led administration.

While making this known to the press on Thursday in Makurdi, Benue State, the Chairman of the Association, Ene Ngutor, said the nomination of Prof. Joseph Utsev, a Tiv person, is not a wise idea stressing on maintaining the peaceful way of shared political designation amongst the two tribes in the state.

The secretary of the Association, Ocholohi Ogolekwu, also speaking, called on the federal government through the SGF, Sen. George Akume to consider his son, Dr. Raymond Edoh, life member, International Chartered World Learned Society, and the United Nations Habitat Ambassador to Nigeria,
for the Ministerial appointment to avoid unnecessary controversy.
"Sen. George Akume is a son in whom we are all pleased and proud in Benue State. He has never disappointed us, and would not. He has never turned us down on any request taken to him and we know he wouldn't, on this. Please, give room for the already existing mutual political understanding between the two tribes in Benue State, we plead you to speak with the President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to withdraw the ministerial nominee from Benue State, not on the basis of incompetence, but to give this mutual understand and precedence a chance amongst us all in the state.

"We are calling on President Ahmed Bola Tinubu through our son Sen. George Akume to consider Dr. Raymond Edoh an Idoma Man to take over the ministerial slot for Benue State. He has worked hard for the party and still working hard and should be given a chance to serve in that capacity," he added.

Aminu Aminu has extended gratitude to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for considering the iron lady, an Amazon of the 21st Century, Dr. Mariya Bunkore for a ministerial portfolio.

Aminu Aminu who is also
Director of Contact and Mobilization, ICC, and a member of seven other presidential campaign committees made this known to journalists in Abuja during the weekend.

According to him, "Managing government for effective service delivery needs not just educated persons but also committed, dedicated, devoted and selfless ones that would work for the interest of the country and its people.

"Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu has demonstrated that to Nigerians by nominating educated capable hands to assist him in pushing the country to the next level of development.

"The opportunity that the Nigerian Leader is giving to the youth in the affairs of governance is unprecedented most important is the gender consciousness he was able to inject into the selection of those that will form his cabinet.

"Dr Mariya Bunkore's ministerial nomination which came after another name earlier nominated in Kano was withdrawn from the ministerial list, has not only justified the superiority of competence but also maturity, experience, and a recognition of service to humanity.

"Born in 1976, Dr Mariya is an accomplished public servant who had contributed immensely to the well-being of the people of Kano State in particular and Nigeria as a whole as a medical practitioner and as commissioner for higher education in Kano State.

"The mother of four has always stood by the people of Kano State and has impacted positively their lives as such her nomination for minister did not come as a surprise but rather the confirmation of the expectation of the people in the state.

"Dr. Mariya is a woman of virtue, a woman of substance whose compassion, desire to take responsibility for others, incorruptible nature, detribalized posture, and love for the progress and development of the nation are known to all that has ever crossed her path.

"I, therefore congratulate Dr Mariya for her nomination as the minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and on behave of the Nigerian Youth under the Youth and Civil Society Coalition for Development (YCSCD) and Grassroots Mobilization for Asiwaju (GMA 2023), thank President Bola Ahmed for bringing on board tested and trusted hands to undertake the Nigerian project with him.

"Dr. Mariya's nomination and subsequent confirmation are a plus to the stock of leaders carefully selected across the country who are ready to sacrifice their time, family, and comfort for the betterment of Nigeria and its citizens.

"Ministerial designates like His Excellency Muhammad Badaru Abubakar, his confidant, His Excellency Atiku Bagudu, Dr. Iman Sukeman Ibrahim, Barrister Bello Muhammad Goronyo, and a host of others across all regions in the country give Nigerians hope for a brighter future and the feeling that the country is in the good hands.

"With this caliber of people in the President's cabinet, Nigerians should expect extraordinary performance from this government. We the youth in the country have supported and will continue to support this government until the country is delivered from the myriads of social and economic challenges bedeviling it.

"We pray that more capable hands will continue to be selected for other positions in the government so that the reforms for better development in achieving a prosperous nation targeted by Tinubu's administration will become a reality.

"Once again on behave of my fellow Nigerian Youth, I congratulate all the Federal government appointees and wish them God's guidance, protection, and wisdom to do the right thing always.

Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
Long live Mr. President
Long live the Nigerian Youth".

We have always been partners in the distribution of petroleum products in the downstream and as such we condemn in eloquent and strong terms this disturbing and laughable impression Mr. Bashir Tahr seems to portray.
It's even more laughable when one says he pays PTD a huge some of N200,000.

Democracy Day: Dr. Raymond Edoh congratulates Nigerians, urges leaders on focused leadership

The United Nations Habitat Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Raymond Edoh has called on Nigerian leaders to imbibe result-oriented driven leadership for a high-breed good governance that would metamorphize into all-inclusive dividends of democracy in its holistic context for its citizenry.

The young global youth icon and international activist while on an economy and infrastructural wide tour in North America make the statement today 12th June, 2023 urging the Nigerian youth to continue believing in Nigeria and her leaders pointing out that the country is a blessed nation that needs total commitment to be able to harness and explore its potentials.

According to the letter he signed electronically and made available to journalists by his media aide, Emmanuel Daudu,
"Nigerian Democracy Day is a public holiday in Nigeria that is celebrated annually on June 12th. The holiday commemorates the restoration of democracy in Nigeria, which occurred on June 12, 1993, when the country held its first presidential election since the military coup of 1983.

"The election was widely considered to be free and fair, with a record turnout of voters. The results of the election showed that Moshood Abiola, a wealthy businessman, and philanthropist, had won the presidential election. However, the military government at the time annulled the election results, leading to widespread protests and political unrest.

"After years of struggle by pro-democracy activists and international pressure, Nigeria finally returned to democratic rule in 1999. In recognition of the significance of June 12th in Nigeria's democratic history, the country's government declared it as Democracy Day in 2018 and it has been celebrated as a national holiday since then.

Edoh, while outlining major issues affecting Nigeria, he has this to say.
"As Africa’s most populous country, the largest economy, and most notable democracy, Nigeria is a bellwether for the continent. A weakening economy, rising insecurity, and violent conflicts threaten progress made in its democratic development. Amid deepening distrust in government and institutions, Nigeria has significant work to do in improving national, state, and local security and governance.

"Nigeria’s federal system gives governors great responsibilities in addressing the issues driving the country’s multiple conflicts, including farmer-herder violence, deepening regional divides, armed banditry and the Boko Haram insurgency, corruption, youth exclusiveness in governance, absence of accountability and transparency in governance amongst many other issues. The federal government should bring together state governors, national policymakers, and civic leaders to design and implement inclusive policies that mitigate violence and strengthen community-oriented security. Sure, this will Institute engagements and a variety of influential figures, empowering citizens and using its expertise and convening power to inform achievable and implementable policies.

Giving measures as to what Nigerian leaders should look out for, Edoh said, Nigeria, like any other nation, can only progress and thrive if it is united and all its resources are optimally utilized for the benefit of its citizens.

"It is essential for the government to prioritize the health, safety, and prosperity of its people as an urgent concern. This can be achieved by investing in public health infrastructure, providing access to quality education and healthcare, creating job opportunities, and promoting economic growth.

"It is also important for the government to address issues of corruption and mismanagement of public resources, as these can hinder progress and development. By ensuring transparency and accountability in the management of public resources, the government can build trust with its citizens and promote a sense of unity and common purpose.

"Overall, Nigeria has the potential to be a great nation, but it can only achieve this by working towards unity and optimizing its resources for the benefit of its people regardless of political party, social strata, religious differences, and others.

"Nigeria and Nigerians should grow far beyond these and build a nation they all can be proud of", he added.

Edoh also tasked the youths to continue hoping and believing in the nation's prospects stressing that in a no-distance time, the overdue growth in the economy that the youths are yearning for will come to a reality.

“We should also live our lives with a consciousness of eternity that one day, every action we embark upon in this world will stand before the God of the universe, he added.

Speaking while distribution the food items and empowering the less privileged people,he said “I realized that Jesus Christ didn’t just preach the gospel with words anywhere, there was a need to meet practicality. Multiplied food.

“For example, for people who are in need of food, and experience these kinds of things.This is the inspiration that the gospel is not only preached to the world, it is preached and people may not hear what you say, but they believe what you do when they see the action”.

On her part, Dr Mrs Becky Enenche said we are always grateful to God even though is my husband’s birthday, we take every day seriously with God and trust God that everyday we fulfill destiny and impact lives.

Politics / Sdgs-youth Africa Awards Dr. Raymond Edoh by Daudupress: 9:02am On May 30, 2023
The UN Habitat Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Raymond Edoh has been awarded by the SDGs-Youth Africa on the basis of immense contributions in the implementation of the 17 SDGs across Africa stressing that his commitment in the achievements of the SDGs goals has earned him the continental honour.

The young oil mogul while speaking shortly after receiving the Award of Recognition, Dr. Edoh expressed hopes that the signing of the partnership deal would lead to better coordination and synergy amongst the uniform organisations and make it easier to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals at the grassroot levels.

He further expressed gratitude to the organisers of the event, particularly the SDG-Youth forum for the unique distinction given to him.

“The award means a lot to me because when you are recognised in this manner it means that people are seeing what you are doing and they appreciate you. This award will spur me into greater exploits and community service,”

Also speaking during the launch of the initiative, the Country Representative of SDGs Youth Nigeria, Engr. Ifeanyi Uzoh, expressed optimism that the partnership deal will enhance the ability of youth leaders and youth groups to localize the sustainable development goals in their communities whilst also developing policies and programmes that will enable young people to lead and thrive.

He stated that the five concerned key areas identified and the main focus are People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership. These areas are considered essential for achieving sustainable development, and a strategic partnership with the Uniform Youth Organizations is expected to make them more practicable and attainable, stressing that the SDGs Youth Nigeria are seeking to work with other organizations and stakeholders to promote sustainable development and achieve their goals.

“The essence of today’s event is to sign a partnership agreement between the SDG Youth Office and the National Association of Uniform Voluntary Organization (NAUVO) – that is, The Boys Scout, Girls Guide, Peace Corps of Nigeria, Royal Rangers International, and all the other Voluntary Youth Organisations that put on uniforms in Nigeria.

“This partnership initiative is geared towards executing five important projects that has to do with promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Also, we have been able to set up a Central Planning Committee that will pilot the execution of these projects, starting from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and then, to the 36 states of the Federation.

“The Partnership activities include: Establishment of SDG Clubs in Secondary Schools, SDG YOUTH Sports Festival for Secondary Schools, Miss SDG Youth Nigeria, End Gender Violence now, and the Menstrual Hygiene Project. These projects will help to drive the advocacy aspect of the SDG in Nigeria as well as the evaluation, implementation and monitoring of the projects,” Uzoh explained.

Earlier, while giving a lecture at the event, the UN Habitat Ambassador, Dr. Raymond Edoh has this to say.
"It's worth joining this history making event that is occasioned to officially engage the Nigerian Uniform volunteers in the execution of the Nigerian SDGs- Youth Projects which holds today 12 May, 2023 At th MKO National Stadium, Abuja-Nigeria.

"The three major concern terms as to why we are here today are SDGs, Uniform, Volunteerism.
To start with SDGs, permit me to take us on a quick history.

"History: The 2030 global United Sustainable Development Goals known as SDGs in acronym, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.

"At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are:
GOAL 1: No Poverty, GOAL 2: Zero Hunger, GOAL 3: Good Health and Well-being, GOAL 4: Quality Education, GOAL 5: Gender Equality, GOAL 6: Clean Water and Sanitation, GOAL 7: Affordable and Clean Energy, GOAL 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, GOAL 10: Reduced Inequality, GOAL 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, GOAL 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, GOAL 13: Climate Action, GOAL 14: Life Below Water, GOAL 15: Life on Land, GOAL 16: Peace and Justice Strong Institutions, GOAL 17: Partnerships to achieve the Goal

"All these are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
The SDGs build on decades of work by countries and the UN, including the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs
• In June 1992, at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, more than 178 countries adopted Agenda 21, a comprehensive plan of action to build a global partnership for sustainable development to improve human lives and protect the environment.
• Member States unanimously adopted the Millennium Declaration at the Millennium Summit in September 2000 at UN Headquarters in New York. The Summit led to the elaboration of eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to reduce extreme poverty by 2015.
• The Johannesburg Declaration on Sustainable Development and the Plan of Implementation, adopted at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in South Africa in 2002, reaffirmed the global community's commitments to poverty eradication and the environment, and built on Agenda 21 and the Millennium Declaration by including more emphasis on multilateral partnerships.

"The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to transform our world. They are a call to action to end poverty and inequality, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy health, justice and prosperity. It is critical that no one is left behind.

"To achieve these goals, it is necessary that future decision-makers and stakeholders in society consider these goals to be important and that's why we're are all gathered here today.

"It was possible to categorize the SDGs into three higher-level factors that reflect the three pillars of sustainability (social, economic, environmental). These three pillars are considered to be of varying importance in different countries. We also correlated the ratings of these higher-level factors with country-specific indicators, such as the Human Development Index. The correlations between the indicators and the higher-level factors revealed that in countries with higher indices, the SDGs are rated as less important compared to in countries with lower indices. These results provide stakeholders with important guidance on how the SDGs should be promoted in their country.

"Coming to uniform volunteerism:
one sector of the social economy in the Nigerian Community that is viable and productive is the voluntary organisations.
Volunteerism is playing an important role in almost every field of our social activity. You contribute to employment creation, active citizenship, democracy, provide a wide range of services, play a major role in sport activities, represent citizens' interests to various public authorities and play a major part in promoting and safeguarding human rights as well as having a crucial role in development policies.

"Volunteerism, over the years have made an increasing contribution to the development of Nigeria which is something that should be encouraged and to keep motivating the players by giving them more widows to showcase their talents, which is the major reason why we are here, today.
Volunteers however engage in a lot of roles including:
(a) Service delivery or provision to provide to their members or clients services such as social services, health care, training, information, advice or support.
(b) Advocacy: organisations whose purpose is to campaign, lobby, and otherwise argue on behalf of some cause or group with the aim of changing public perception or policy.
(c) Self-help or mutual aid: organisations typically formed by groups of individuals with some common interest or need in order to provide mutual help, information, support and cooperation.
(d) Resource and co-ordination: so-called "intermediary bodies" which co-ordinate the activities of, or provide information and support to, either individual organisations working in a particular field or to the sector in general. Such organisations fulfil the important function of providing an interface between the sector and public authorities.
Given this importance, the nigerian volunteering Community sees time as its most precious resource. So if you are considering volunteering, but wondering if it’s worth your time and effort, it’s important to remember that even though you won’t be earning a wage, the skills you gain are priceless.
Volunteers gain so much out of volunteering: new friends, a sense of purpose, a connection to the community and the satisfaction of helping others. You’ll also pick up plenty of soft skills that you can use to help you land to your dream job. Today, the SDGs Youth-Nigeria wants to engage you all because of the skills acquired over the years through volunteering.
Before we get into the skills gained from volunteering, it’s also worth highlighting the volunteer skills that organizations are looking out for.

"What qualities make a good volunteer?
Some of the key qualities that volunteer organizations look for are: Passion, Compassion, Strong work ethic, Teamwork, Time management, Positive attitude, Willingness to help.
These soft volunteer skills are more important than any technical or special skills for volunteering, as anyone with the right attitude and a willingness to learn can be trained for specific tasks. All of these skills we have seen in you and we want to see congratulations. You can celebrate your selves, please.

"We are engaging you all today because you all have acquired lots of skills ranging from ability for teamwork, problem solving, creativity, persistence, leadership skills, relationship building, confidence, punctuality, organization amongst many others. Please, don't disappoint us, don't disappoint SDGs Youth-Nigeria.

"I wouldn't want to bother you with too much lecture today, but just to say a big congratulations for this little beginning. Assuredly, there would be a mutual benefit in the nearest future", he added.

The partnership between the SDGs Youth Nigeria Office and the National Association of Uniform Voluntary Organisation (NAUVO) is a positive step towards promoting the involvement of young people in achieving the SDGs. The NAUVO is a group of young people who are committed to promoting volunteerism, community service, and national development.

Through this partnership, the SDGs Youth Nigeria Office and the NAUVO can work together to raise awareness about the SDGs, mobilize young people to take action towards achieving the goals, and monitor progress towards achieving the SDGs in Nigeria. This partnership is an excellent example of how collaboration between different organizations can help to promote sustainable development and improve the lives of people in Nigeria.

The initiative, according to the SDG Youth forum, is aimed at building a robust Public Private Partnership (PPP) with strategic youth organisations and civil society bodies in Nigeria to prioritise and achieve the SDGs.

The one-day event which held on Friday at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja also sought to advocate for a more sustainable world by spreading vital information about climate change, supporting alternative energy research and protecting the environment, encouraging sustainable trade and consumption, and promoting more equal and sustainable lifestyles.

Also speaking, the National Coordinator of NAUVO, Amb. Abraham Kwaghfar gave a brief background of the organization. He said the National Association of Uniform Voluntary Organization was established in 2018 to serve as a rallying platform for all Uniform Voluntary Organizations towards greater synergy and national progress.

He noted that the Partnership initiative with the SDG Youth forum, was a timely and welcomed development, adding that the initiative will lead to greater synergy and productivity amongst the uniform organisations.

Amb. Kwaghfar also used the opportunity to call on the Federal Government and President Muhammadu Buhari to assent to the Peace Corps Bill. He said the signing of the Bill will provide job opportunities and stem the tides of widespread insecurity across the country.

He said: “We want to use this opportunity to call on the Federal Government, particularly Mr. President, to do all within his power to sign our appeal that is before his table; that is, the Nigeria Peace Corps Bill. We strongly believe that if the Bill is signed, many of our members and sister-organisations will benefit from it. It will reduce crime and create job opportunities

Politics / May 29: Group Debunks Eneche's Comments On Tinubu's Inauguration by Daudupress: 6:20pm On May 29, 2023
A group, Concerned Christian Youths (CCY), has debunked recent comments attributed to Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr Paul Enenche.

An online publication in a recent post captioned, 'Tinubu Don’t Have To Be Afraid Because All The Campaigns Against Him Are Mere Distraction', quoted Enenche as noting that "they are currently making efforts to clean and detoxify the Abuja environment where Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu will be operating from."

Reacting, the group in a statement by its President, Enitan Caleb and Secretary,
Darlington Okujaye, said Enenche never made such comments.

The statement titled, "Re: Tinubu Don’t Have To Be Afraid Because All The Campaigns Against Him Are Mere Distraction", reads: "Our attention has been drawn to the above caption being attributed to the revered Dr Paul Enenche on opera news.

"The caption can be best described as false, malicious and misleading. It is a figment of the imagination of some mischievous elements who are desperate to cause misinformation and confusion.

"Dr Enenche never made such a statement. Those who know the man of God and his antecedents can confirm that the captioned statement is incompatible with his nature and public comments and pronouncements.

"Yes, prayers were made in church today against all forces of evil militating against our nation in this season, but no politician was addressed, either directly or indirectly. As a patriotic citizen, Dr Enenche has been consistently engaging his congregation in praying for the nation, even years before this current electioneering and transition season.

"It is therefore callous and devilish for some untutored rogues to attempt to distort the truth, misinform the public, cause confusion and smear the impeccable reputation of a man known for his unparalleled integrity.

"We would like to sound a note of warning to opera news to desist from peddling false news and quack journalism. They should pull down the fake, false, mischievous and malicious writeup immediately and make conscious efforts to be truthful and professional in their reportage henceforth."

Politics / ASQ Group Boss Pleads Buhari To Append Signature On Peace Corps Bill by Daudupress: 9:34pm On May 07, 2023
The Chief Executive Officer of the United Kingdom-based ASQ Group, Mr. Samson Adeosun has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR to give assent to the Nigeria Peace Corps (Etablishment) Bill, pointing out that the benefits associated with assenting to this bill are enormous stressing that it would specifically engage the youths and drastically reduce insecurity in the country, adding that the corps would help in complementing the tireless efforts of other security agencies at maintaining peace across the country.

Adeosun made this appeal on Saturday in a press statement he signed and made available to journalists.

According to him, "Creating jobs can have numerous benefits, especially in a country like Nigeria where youth unemployment is a major challenge. By creating job opportunities, the government can engage the youth and provide them with a sense of purpose and direction. This can help reduce the likelihood of young people being drawn into criminal activities and other forms of insecurity.

"Moreover, job creation can have a ripple effect on the economy, as people with jobs tend to spend money and contribute to overall economic growth. This can also lead to increased tax revenues for the government, which can be used to fund other important initiatives as in this regard insecurity would be holistically brought to an end.

"In addition, job creation can help address social and economic disparities, as it provides opportunities for people from different backgrounds and regions to participate in the economy and improve their standard of living. This can ultimately lead to a more stable and cohesive society.

"Overall, the benefits of creating jobs are significant and far-reaching and should be a priority for any government seeking to promote economic growth, reduce insecurity, and improve the well-being of its citizens.

"Assented to by the President, will go a long way in providing jobs for a large number of unemployed youths and also ensuring peace and unity in the country.

"In line with provisions of the 1999 Constitution, President Buhari is expected to assent to the bill on or before 11th May 2023 when 30 days window given for such important action must have been exploited.

"The Bill, If assented to, the existing Peace Corps of Nigeria which had been operating on the template of volunteerism over the years, will now be a Federal Government owned and funded Agency in the name of Nigeria Peace Corps", Adeosun said.

Appreciating and encouraging the ever-resilient and dogged National Commandant, Peace Corps of Nigeria, Professor Dickson Akoh, Adeosun charged him to keep hope alive as there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
