The Diaspora Head, International World Peace Advocacy, Denmark, Dr. Olanrewaju Abraham, has commended Oyo State Governmnent on its implementation of Sustainable Development Goals programme in the state.
Abraham gave the commendation during a courtesy visit to the Senior Special Assistant on SDGs to Governor Seyi Makinde, Mr. Kunle Yusuff on Monday,in Ibadan.
Abraham, a recipient of United Nations Peace Award stressed the importance of attaining the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, as championed by the International Association of World Peace Advocates.
While he commended Oyo State Government on its recent development projects on Sustainable Development Goals Programme, he tasked everyone not to feel less concerned about conflicts around the globe as it eventually has a way of hurting the people.
“I will use this opportunity to advocate for peace for humanity and pray that our world changes,” he said.
He also charged well meaning Nigerians to join the struggle to engender a peaceful world, through sensitisation on the essence of Sustainable Development Goals.
He, however, pledged unalloyed support to the Makinde led administration, even as the UN decade of action lapses in 2030.
Abraham noted that after careful monitoring of SDGs activities in Oyo State, his office is convinced on the need to collaborate with Oyo state Government through the office of SDGs in the state.
The Peace Ambassador also called for vehement sensitisation and active participation by the citizenry, saying: “We are ready to partner with Oyo State Government, seeing evidently that the State Government is SDGs compliant. So, we will join hands with Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration to sensitise the people and create an awareness.”
“We would advocate for peace, where there is need and try to encourage our citizen,” Abraham added.
