Ban Ki-Moon in Nigeria: to meet with 10 young leaders

- Advertisment -

The UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, arrived in Nigeria on Sunday for a two-day official visit.

Ban, who arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at 4.15p.m., was received by Bulus Lolo, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The UN Resident Coordinator, Daouda Toure, UNFPA Executive Director, Babatunde Oshotimehin and Special Representative of UN Secretary-General to Nigeria and West Africa, Mohammed Ibn Chambas, were among those who received Ban.

The Secretary-General was driven to Transcorp Hilton, where he is expected to hold talks with state governors under the aegis of Nigerian Governors Forum, NGF.

The dialogue with the governors would hold under the theme: “Pathways to a New Nigeria – the Role of Sub-national Governments.”

The UN Scribe would on Monday meet with President Muhammadu Buhari at Aso Rock Villa.

Ban would later lay a wreath in memory of persons who died at the UN House bombing in 2011, as part of activities to mark the fourth anniversary of the incident.

The UN scribe would also have lunch with members of the business community with the theme: “The Role of Nigeria Business and the Economy in Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals and Addressing Climate Change.”

This morning, he will meet with 10 young leaders to answer questions on development, climate change and the role of young people.

Based on the large popularity of young people on Twitter in Nigeria, this will present an opportunity to talk to young leaders about development and the role in shaping a better future for all.

 

The Goal of the event will be to promote the sustainable development goals and increase momentum and ownership in Nigeria, to produce and communicate key messages to influence national political actions towards the implementation of the SDGs, to increase the knowledge of young people in Nigeria and across Africa on the new development agenda, especially on it’s opportunity for dealing with youth development issues, and inspire the next generations of leaders on their roles in promoting sustainable development.
