 The International Association of World Peace Advocates IAWPA has concluded plans to celebrate the UN SDG third anniversary  and also recognize Nigerians whose efforts have helped promote the Sustainable Development Goals thereby helping to promote peace and development in the country.

The association in a press statement signed by its Director of Media and Publicity Comrade Nwokoma Messiah said aside the recognition of 17 governors across the country that have impacted on their states in terms of the goals, the group will be recognizing other eminent Nigerians by appointing them Eminent Peace Ambassadors with all benefits that comes with such appointments.

The Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer of the Bank Of Agriculture Kabir Mohammed Adamu, Executive Secretary of the Universal Basic Education Commission Hammid Bobboyi as well as the Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Abdullahi Baffa are among eminent Nigerians that will be recognized by the association for the efforts they have made in ensuring that the goals encapsulated in the Sustainable Development Goals are met in their various organisations.

The association which is an official partner of the United Nations Organisation and a major promoter of the SDG in the African sub region says with the collaboration of major stakeholders in the country, Nigeria can meet the set goals before the year 2030. The group said it is doing all it can to ensure that Nigerians are kept abreast with the objectives of the SDG especially at the policy making levels.

The statement commended the Bank of Agriculture for helping alleviate poverty and creating employment for Nigerians in the agricultural sector which has boosted production. “What the Bank of Agriculture is doing in the agricultural sector will help make Nigeria a major agricultural hub in the continent and it is imperative that we recognize such efforts as well as that of the basic and tertiary education heads that are driving the country to greater heights through people oriented and effective policies” the statement added.

The Sustainable Development Goals SDG of the United Nations Organisation came into effect on the 25th of September 2015 and was signed by member countries of the global body as a successor to the Millennium Development Goals MDG.
