Amina Mohammed pledges to prioritise Nigeria’s development @UN


- Advertisment -
The Deputy UN Secretary-General designate, Ms Amina Mohammed, has said her priority will be the development of Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
Mohammed stated this on Monday in Abuja at a dinner organised in her honour by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on her appointment as Deputy UN Secretary-General Designate
New UN Secretary-General António Guterres had in December 2016 appointed Mohammed as his Deputy.
Mohammed said her appointment was a great honour and a huge task but promised not let the nation down.
The minister said that she had spent four years at the UN shaping the life of others around the globe which, she said, she did with satisfaction.
Mohammed thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for giving her the opportunity to serve within and outside the country.
She said her development as `a made in Nigeria product`, `bred in Nigeria`, `panel beaten in Nigeria` had prepared her for the UN job
She said that Guterres appointed her because of the moral imperative to encourage others, especially as the world is currently facing a huge task.
Mohammed said her experience in the National Assembly, during which she faced the lawmakers on various issues, had also made her stronger to confront the global task.
