*Ex-Buhari’s minister leads UN delegation to Osinbajo
The United Nations Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed, on Wednesday led a delegation of the world body to a closed door meeting with the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Mohammed, who was Nigeria’s Minister of Environment until her UN appointment, later told State House correspondents that the meeting with Osinbajo centred on increased investment in women as well as peace development.
She said, “Its been exciting time to be here because really, we are talking about the implementation of the Agenda 2030 but also 2063.
“We know that there are many lessons that we have learnt and there are challenges that we have but we have some successes from the North East all the way to the South.
“We want to make sure that we do more so that we can see the scale of this, particularly from the women at the centre.
“In our discussion with the Acting President, it’s been about how to increase investments in women, peace and development to ensure that women are a central part of what we do.
“We will see the difference, as he said. It’s not just the question of the morals or rights but it’s an economic one as well.”
