New York, 12 August 2015

Happy International Youth Day!

Ban Ki-moon Secretary-General, United Nations.

Ban Ki-moon
Secretary-General, United Nations.

We are meeting together at a very promising time.

Governments have just agreed on a bold new sustainable development vision to transform our world by 2030.

Today’s young people can help realize the sustainable development goals.

Youth face many challenges, including poverty, conflicts and unemployment.

But young people are not simply accepting this as their fate. They are rising up to challenge power structures… speaking out for justice and human rights … and advocating global action for people and the planet.

As we mark this Day on the theme of civic engagement, I stand with these young activists.

The sustainable development goals are for you – and they will only be achieved with you.

The new agenda aims to end poverty. It takes a comprehensive approach, integrating the environmental, social and economic dimensions of sustainable development.

This agenda is for all countries – no matter what their income.

IYD_20152 copy

The goals aim to tackle systematic problems that young people understand so well – like inequality, wasteful consumerism and the lack of decent jobs. Read more

“The problems are more with transmission than generation, and we equally need to secure the power infrastructure round the country.
“We will address all these issues,” the President assured.
Ambassador Igali told the President that power generation in Nigeria which was 1,750 MW in 1999, had now peaked at 4,600 MW.
He added that gas was available to take generation to 5,500 MW in a short time, but that the country needed to expand its electricity infrastructure to accommodate additional power generation.
