Turning promises into action: Gender equality in the 2030 Agenda

In the countdown to the International Women’s Day, March 8, 2018, UN Women has released its flagship report which demonstrates through evidence, new data and analysis how women and girls are faring across the world, and what it will take to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

Titled Turning promises into action: Gender equality in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, UN Women’s new flagship report provides a comprehensive and authoritative assessment of progress, gaps and challenges in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from a gender perspective. The report monitors global and regional trends in achieving the SDGs for women and girls based on available data, and provides practical guidance for the implementation of gender-responsive policies and accountability processes,

Gender equality is a right. Fulfilling this right is the best chance we have in meeting some of the most pressing challenges of our time—from economic crises and lack of health care, to climate change, violence against women and escalating conflicts.

Women are not only more affected by these problems, but also possess ideas and leadership to solve them. The gender discrimination still holding too many women back, holds our world back too.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by world leaders in 2015, embody a roadmap for progress that is sustainable and leaves no one behind.

Achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment is integral to each of the 17 goals. Only by ensuring the rights of women and girls across all the goals will we get to justice and inclusion, economies that work for all, and sustaining our shared environment now and for future generations.

This editorial package showcases UN Women’s 2018 flagship report, Turning promises into action: Gender equality in the 2030 Agenda. It features data, stories, videos and publications that illustrate how and why gender equality matters across all the Sustainable Development Goals, and how the goals affect the real lives of women and girls everywhere.

More than two years into the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, gender equality is fundamental to delivering on the promises of sustainability, peace and human progress.

Govt intervenes in Qur’anic recitation crisis between SUBEB, Tsangaya School

By Suzan Edeh

Bauchi State government has intervened in the dispute between the State Universal Basic Education Board SUBEB and Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi Foundation over Qur’anic recitation of Tsangaya Schools across the state.

The Commissioner for Education, Professor Haruna Danwanka, who disclosed this in a statement yesterday, said the government was deeply concerned over the lingering crisis between the renown Islamic scholar, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, and SUBEB on the mode of curriculum in Tsangaya schools.

He said the government waded into the matter, with a view to finding a lasting solution to the dispute.

According to Danwanka, “the lingering dispute between the Islamic scholar and SUBEB on the mode of curriculum in Tsangaya School is unnecessary and uncalled for, hence government has step into the matter and will come up with ways to address the problem.

“Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State has directed that both parties stay neutral and calm until a committee is constituted with a view to finding an amicable solution to this unfortunate incident.”

Tsangaya reacts

In a swift reaction, the National Director, Media and Publicity of Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi Foundation, Ahmad Saka, commended the government for its effort to address the dispute, but said: “There is no issue between SUBEB and Sheikh Bauchi concerning the mode of curriculum in Tsangaya Schools.

“The upheaval was caused by an interference of the government agency by a group called Izala People in SUBEB and the stoppage of recitation of Wazifah and Salatul Fatih, a Quaranic recitation, by SUBEB, which all Muslims and followers of Tijjaniyyah in the state felt violated their freedom of religion.

“They suspended the principal of the school concerned and did not post him anywhere.

“They also sent a letter barring recitation of Qur’anic of school and denied Sheikh Dahiru slots of admission in the school during the last academic session, which was not fair.”

Saka appealed to the government to return to them their school and to stop all government agencies from interfering in the activities of the school in the interest of peace, justice and fairness.


Also reacting to the matter, the SUBEB Chairman, Professor Yahaya Yaro, told journalists that the board barred teaching of Wazifah and recitation of Salatul Fatihi because of the complains they received from parents and it was not in the curriculum of the Tsangaya School.

Five years after dream actualisation, Bayelsa Govt honours late Prof. Dora Akunyili

Like the proverbial stone that does not tender its softness after a heavy downpour, so the honour of the late Prof. Dora Akunyili keeps raining in year-in-year-out despite her demise.

Prof. Dora Akunyili

Penultimate week, it was another day of honour for the family as the oil-rich state led by Hon. Seriake Dickson, remembered her for having sold to the state her dream of building a viable Drug Mart in fighting against the sale and distribution of fake drugs in the Niger-Delta region, five years ago before she finally kissed the dust three years ago.

Henry Louis Mencken, a satirist, cultural critic and  American journalist, said that “Honor is simply the morality of superior men.” Unarguably, Dora falls into this category of persons in her stand against illicit drugs in the country when she was the Director- General of the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC.

It would be recalled that on June 5, 2013, through NAFDAC, Dora entered into a pact with the Bayelsa State Government to build a viable Drug Mart, an idea which the governor completely bought and immediately laid a block for the building and later commenced full construction work at the site. This year, the completion and inauguration took place at Yenagoa, the state capital.

While commissioning the state-of-the-art health facility, former President Olusegun Obasanjo extolled the virtues of the late Prof. Dora Akunyili as one of the Drug Mart halls was named after her.

The former president continued by evoking emotions of the multitude present at the inauguration. He said he liked her especially for her courage and unshakable love for Nigeria.

The host, Governor Seriake Dickson in same vein, paid glowing tributes to the late Nigerian game changer in the war against counterfeit drugs. He thanked her for the initiative and contributions she made towards fighting against counterfeit drugs in Bayelsa State and the country at large.

According to the governor, “Dora has been a big loss to all Nigerians. We are naming this hall after her as part of efforts at immortalising her. “  Just like a grateful bird that comes back to its cave to rest, the Governor demonstrated his gratitude by inviting the immediate family of the deceased and hosted them lavishly for three days.

FG charged on rising cases of out-of-school female children

By Gabriel Ewepu & Maxwell Tochukwu

ABUJA– THE wife of the Governor of Kebbi State, Mrs. Zainab Bagudu, disclosed that the rising cases of out-of-school female children would not reduce if common issues like personal hygiene and general learning condition remain a challenge in school environments.

Zainab Bagudu

Speaking at a   ceremony in Abuja, to commemorate Procter & Gamble’s ’25 years of impact in Nigeria,’ Bagudu also called on the federal and state governments, as well as private individuals to increase their social investment programmes, stating that this would go a long way to reduce the gap in the number of out-of-school children.

She stated that unless government at all levels address the underlying challenges confronting the girl- child across the country, bridging the gap in the number of out-of-school children, especially girls, would remain elusive.

She maintained that the learning conditions across public schools require urgent attention, stressing that the level of poverty in the country is directly linked to the challenges faced by young girls.

Bagudu, who thanked P&G for supporting girl-child education in the country, especially dealing with issues like menstrual hygiene management, noted that Kebbi State is currently making efforts in the same direction.

“We have six million girls that are out of school. This is one of the issues that take them out of school. The level of poverty is so high that some girls cannot afford to buy N100 sanitary pad,” she said.

Also speaking, Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, said education, particularly in the areas of science and technology, remained a key focus for the current administration.

Ahmed said the initiative by the company was in line with the Federal Government’s commitment to provide proper education and skills for young girls.

In his own remarks, Managing Director, P&G, Gorge Nassar, reaffirmed the company’s commitment to the Nigerian economy, adding that investment in social challenges remained a priority for the organisation.

He stated that the company would continue to provide superior products that would satisfy the needs of consumers across the country.

The Brand Director for the organisation, Tolulope Adedeji, added that the company’s Always in school initiative for girls, has equipped millions of young girls within the ages of 10 and 12, especially with necessary information on hygiene.

“This has resulted in reduction in the rate of absenteeism in school and increment in their confidence level.”

The event, which also marked a partnership pact with   Mercycorp is part of measures to extend the scope of the company’s reach in the area of bridging the gap in the number of out-of-school girls.

How IPOB attacked us at Enugu meeting—Igbo leaders

By Emeka Mamah, Clifford Ndujihe, Vincent Ujumadu, Anayo Okoli & Dennis Agbo

IGBO leaders, who were attacked by youths suspected to be members of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB and other pro-Biafra agitation groups in a meeting in Enugu on Tuesday have reeled out gory tales of how they nearly lost their lives during the commotion.

IPOB members on solidarity march

Secretary of Igbo Leaders of Thought, ILT, and former director-general of the National Orientation Agency, NOA, Prof Elochukwu Amucheazi, said he nearly lost his life during fracas.

A group of youths suspected to be members of IPOB and other pro –Biafra groups disrupted the event which was meant to honour some notable Igbo, including the first republic president, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi and late Chief Sam Mbakwe, among others.

Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB however, issued a statement yesterday, denying involvement in the attack.

Amucheazi told Vanguard on the telephone that, although his red cap, eye glasses and mobile telephone which were forcefully taken away from him were immediately returned, he was still in shock over the attack.

He said:  “I was there to see Prof Nwabueze, as I didn’t even know  about the awards or that anybody would be honoured.

“Before much was said, they started shouting and started throwing sachet (pure) water at  me. They wanted to destroy my car.   We were cautioning them to listen to the elders so that they would learn from them, but they refused to listen.

“However, some of the boys who didn’t like what happened or the way I was treated, cautioned their colleagues; collected my red cap, eye glasses and my telephone and returned them to me.”

FG must address South East grievances

He, however, asked the Federal Government to address the myriad of grievances in the the country to reduce youth restiveness in the land.

“There is a lot of anger in the land. Majority of Nigerians are suffering and the government of the day has to address the issues involved. This idea of treating some people or the Igbo as a conquered people will not be allowed to go on forever.

“My advice is that the government should address the grievances in the land. The idea of treating Igbo as a conquered people will not be allowed to go on forever. The fact that Nnamdi Kanu was subdued does not mean that another Nnamdi Kanu   will not emerge again,” he added.

IPOB not applying right method– Maria Okwor

Also giving account of what happened, Deputy leader of the Eastern Consultative Assembly, ECA, Chief Mrs Maria Okwor said that the young members of   the Indigenous People of Biafra were not applying the appropriate method pursuant of their agitation for a separatist country.

She said that IPOB and other Pro-Biafra groups should accept restructuring Nigeria for now, noting that if the country is restructured, it would be easier to realise the autonomous country as being agitated by the groups.

Okwor who was reacting to the disruption of ECA meeting in Enugu  on Tuesday  observed that the Dr Dozie Ikedife-led Biafra agitation group was going about the quest legally and asked the younger agitators to take it easy.

She however asked President Muhammadu Buhari to listen to voice of the angry Nigerians and devise a means of assuaging the monumental anger in the country.

“Nobody is happy, we are all dissatisfied. Look at the security hierarchy, there is no Igbo there. They said they have defeated Boko Haram but they are still there. I sympathise with these youths and their lives no longer mean anything to them.

Incident was unfortunate—Mbazulike Amaechi  

Reacting to the incident, First Republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi yesterday described as unfortunate, the disruption of the event of the Igbo leaders in Enugu, advising those who had any reason to protest against any perceived injustice meted out to them to always adopt peaceful means in fighting their cause.

“After my address, I was honoured before I left and there was no objection or murmur from the crowd. As I was going, I saw a lot of buses heading towards the venue. It was in the Vanguard Newspaper that I read that there was disruption.

“Our people should not forget what Zik did for the country. With him as our leader, we confronted the colonial masters and chased them away and took over government. If not what we did, Nigeria would not have got her independence at the time she did,” he said.

IPOB apologises

It was also gathered that the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB had apologised to the leaders of the Eastern Consultative Assembly, ECA, over the disruption of their programme in Enugu.

Reliable sources told Vanguard yesterday, IPOB leaders made separate telephone calls to the convener of the ECA meeting where the issue of restructuring of the country was to be discussed, with the awards to prominent eastern leaders as highlight of the occasion.

“They felt bad that people like Prof Nwabueze, Maria Okwor and Ugochukwu- Uko, who had been giving them advice on how to go about their agitations in a peaceful manner were embarrassed.
