The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Youth Nigeria Office has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the National Association of Uniform Voluntary Organisation (NAUVO) to build a robust Public Private Partnership (PPP) with youth organisations and civil society bodies in Nigeria.

Speaking during the event, Country Representative of SDGs Youth Nigeria, Engr. Ifeanyi Uzoh, expressed optimism that the partnership deal would enhance the ability of youth leaders and groups to localize the SDGs in their communities.

“This partnership initiative is geared towards executing five important projects that have to do with promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Also, we have been able to set up a Central Planning Committee that will pilot the execution of these projects, starting from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and then, to the 36 states of the Federation.

“The Partnership activities include: Establishment of SDG Clubs in Secondary Schools, SDG YOUTH Sports Festival for Secondary Schools, Miss SDG Youth Nigeria, End Gender Violence now, and the Menstrual Hygiene Project. These projects will help to drive the advocacy aspect of the SDG in Nigeria as well as the evaluation, implementation and monitoring of the projects,” Uzoh explained.

National Coordinator of NAUVO, Amb. Abraham Kwaghfar, said the collaboration was timely, adding that the initiative would lead to greater synergy and productivity amongst the uniform organizations.

Kwaghfar called on the Federal Government and President Muhammadu Buhari to assent to the Peace Corps Bill, saying signing of the Bill would provide job opportunities and stem the tides of widespread insecurity across the country.

Other highlights of the event were the inauguration of a Central Project Committee and Special Recognition of UN-Habitat Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Raymond Edoh.

Edoh expressed hopes that the signing of the partnership deal would lead to better coordination and synergy amongst the uniform organisations.
