Stakeholders under the Civil Society Organisation on Community Advancement and Humanitarian Empowerment Initiative (CSCHEI) have called on the federal government to create a Civil Society Commission.

The coordinator of the group, Kunle Yusuf, made the call on Thursday at the formal launch of the CSCHEI’s projects and programmes in Abuja.

He said the commission would be charged with the responsibilities of coordinating the affairs of the over 45,000 registered nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) in the country.

Yusuf said: “We started disability commission; it has been approved. We are part of the people who started the diaspora commission that has been approved. It is now an agency of the federal government.

“We hope that in a few years to come, the civil society as a commission of the federal government will also be approved.”

He said one of the mandates of the proposed commission would be to ensure the domestication of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in all the states and local governments in the country.

A former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole, who chaired the launch, charged the audience, mostly youths, to take initiative and hustle for themselves as nobody would give power to them.

He said: “You must go out and hustle for yourselves. I think some of us who have held political offices or are holding political offices, I think we’ve embarrassed you enough. So, it is up to you guys to get to move on.”
