CSJ bags United Nation’s special status
The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) has been granted the United Nation’s special consultation status through its arm-Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).ECOSOC had adopted the recommendations of its committee on Non-Governmental Organisations, which rated CSJ as worthy of being actually engaged with the council and its subsidiaries as well as the UN’s secretariat, programmes funds and agencies in various ways.
Consultative relationship with NGOs also enables the council or one of its bodies to seek expert information or advice from organisations with special competence in a subject matter.
CSJ may now request the Secretary-General, through the committee on Non-Governmental Organisations, to place items of special interest in the provisional agenda of the council.
It is also entitled to designate official representatives to the United Nations headquarters in New York and the United Nations offices in Geneva and Vienna.The Lead director of CSJ, Eze Onyekpere, said the recognition is a further call to duty, assuming that he and his team will not relent, but continues to pursue the course of humanity.
