Group confident Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will deliver on SDGs
Action Award winner for Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in 2018, Creative Youth Community Development Initiative (CYCDI), has expressed confident in Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to deliver the goods.
In a statement issued in Basel, Switzerland, CYCDI CEO/Project Director, Foluke Michael, extolled the new governor and wished him a highly successful tenure in office.
According to her, of all the states in Nigeria, Lagos still possesses the biggest potential to give expression to the SDGs, majorly deriving from its ever-growing population and the desire of earlier administrations to achieve a sustainable mega city status.
“We at CYCDI are indeed very happy that Lagos has a new governor, who, among other qualities, is a believer in the SDGs’ cause, which means that creative solutions to curb and eliminate world problems as proposed by the United Nations would receive fair attention and better implementation under his administration,” she said.
The group stated that the THEMES agenda of the Sanwo-Olu government perfectly resonated with the SDGs, adding that with proper implementation, Lagos would be on the path of Sustainable City and Communities, a key element of the goals.
In 2018, CYCDI’s work for driving SDGs gained global acclaim, as it was recognised as the most creative solution. This earned Michael the UN Action Award for Innovation at the global SDG Summit.
The process to replicate CYCDI’s Solution 17 model is currently on-going in Morocco and India, while she has been a guest of several SDGs platforms to share ideas behind the model.
