The Executive Director of Centre for Centre for Global Solutions and Sustainable Development (CENGSSUD), Adebowale Adeniyi has urged government all levels to always form a formidable partnership with Civil Society Organisations and private sector to build a sustainable development for advancement of the people and the country at large.

Adeniyi said this at a three-day empowerment program organised by CENGSSUG under the flagship project called Ending Poverty in Community, (EPIC), a solution initiative established to help the poor getting out of poverty in rural communities at  Oke-Eletu, Ijede, Ikorodu area of Lagos.

According to him, it is tasking and difficult to get support for this kind of project especially in this part of the world. We are still very far behind in terms of developmental project.

“Government is seeing us as threat and competitors instead of seeing us as people who are ready to help them do what they are supposed to do”

“They sometimes frustrate what we are doing, Imagine a secretary to a council asking us how the party members will benefits from the empowerment program meant for the common people in the community, So there is need for government to find a common ground with CSOs and private sectors to provide essential needs of the society”, he said

He also described the challenges of dealing with private sectors as worrisome as most of them tell them they are into Corporate Social Responsibility which most of them rarely do “Some private sectors will tell you that they are doing CSR, they complain about the dollar rate, they complain about harsh economy and all sorts”

He urged the government to continuing to create the needful development in a holistic way. “There should be a linkage among the private sector, CSOs and government and the lacuna need to be closed to create sustainable development for the people”

He mentioned further that CENGSSUG is a globally focused organization (CENGSSUD) that has the primary objective of promoting sustainable development and contributes to advancing practical and workable solutions to the world’s numerous problems through research, advocacy, policy development and partnerships with intention of taking the project to major part of the country and other countries in Africa.
