Uzorma Ehikwe, Chief Executive Officer of Strategic Outreach Support (SOS), a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO)has urged the federal government to provide policies to assist those at the grassroots thrive and grow.
He spoke Friday in Abuja on the sidelines of a one-day workshop and seminar on influencing global policy implementation for sustainable development, organized by SOS.
Ehikwe said the event was part of programs to showcase the activities the organization had engaged in recently.
“Global policies implementation needs to be influenced for sustainable development. What I mean by that is the fact that we really want to have government participation enough and much more into providing policies that can really help grassroots to thrive and grow.
“Part of what we did recently was the market women support fund, which was a pilot program that is going to cover all local government areas in Nigeria, to be able to provide funds for our mothers who are in rural and grassroots areas to have an addiction to doing business and providing ease for doing business. We want to engage the government more in providing for the grassroots.
“We can’t leave these things for the government alone, that is why we also are putting our way to see that the dividends or the elements of sustainable development reaches the many people they can reach. Government should provide enough policies that can help grassroots thrive because without people we don’t have a nation,” he said.
Razak Ivori, Country Director, SOS, said the meeting was to enable sustainable development to have a grassroot seamless interjection.
“Development is becoming quite above the reach of the rural masses, so it is time for us to start bringing development, breaking it down into the rural spotlight and getting the rural people to benefit,” Ivori said
