Sokoto Doing Better Than FG On SDGs – Governor Tambuwal

Sokoto state governor, Aminu Tambuwal has disclosed that the state is doing better than the federal government in the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Tambuwal said this on Tuesday August 9, while receiving the outgoing United Nations Children’s Fund Nigeria representative, Mr. Peter Hawkins, and his team.

Reiterating that his administration is committed to meeting all of its obligations with the UN agency on target, he also restated his administration’s continuous support for the United Nations Children’s Fund in the state.

Tambuwal said;

“We are doing more on the SDGs than the Federal Government. The Federal Government is slowing down seriously on the implementation of the SDGs. We have not, for long, received any support or counterpart funding from the Federal Government on the SDGs.

“I believe for almost four years now, we have not received anything. But our SDG office has been functioning here in Sokoto. Year in, year out, we get some resources for them to continue with the implementation of those programs.”
