President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Adejoke Orelope Adefulire as his Senior Special Assistant on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Mrs. Orelope-Adefulire served as Deputy-Governor of Lagos State in the administration of Babatunde Fashola, and is regarded as an accomplished politician with many years of experience in public service.

The news of the appointment is contained in a statement by the spokesperson of the President, Femi Adesina, on Monday.

The statement said Mrs. Orelope-Adefulire has also served as Commissioner for Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation in Lagos State.

According to the United Nations Development Programme, the Sustainable
Development Goals, otherwise known as the Global Goals, build on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), eight anti-poverty targets that the world committed to achieving by 2015.

The MDGs, adopted in 2000, aimed at an array of issues that included slashing poverty, hunger, disease, gender inequality, and access to water and sanitation, the UNDP said on its website.

“Enormous progress has been made on the MDGs, showing the value of a unifying agenda underpinned by goals and targets. Despite this success, the indignity of poverty has not been ended for all,” agency said.

“The new SDGs, and the broader sustainability agenda, go much further
than the MDGs, addressing the root causes of poverty and the universal
need for development that works for all people.

“The Sustainable Development Goals will now finish the job of the MDGs, and ensure that no one is left behind.”

    What is Imam Mohamed looking for in this woman, cunt or what? Alhaja Anatu Orelope-Adefulire achieved nothing during the donkey years she spent with Lagos government.

      She is not a moslem, idi0t.

      If I were Buhari, I’ll ignore you and your likes bcos nothing he does will ever please you. He appoints men and you complain. Now,he has appointed a woman and you are spewing vulgar and immoral invectives. Even if you place no value on your wife, mum or sisters don’t you pray to have a daughter someday? How will you feel if she’s messed up like you are messing another man’s daughter up?
      She’s not a Muslim and even if she is, i wouldn’t consider that a crime

        Are you saying that muslim females who hide bombs under hijab to kill people are not criminals? May a female suicide bomber hug you tight while discharging her explosives, say Amen. Why is it that Imam Buhari has succeeded in corrupting your minds? Now for you Buhari praise singers fair is foul, and foul is fair.

    Corrupt men and women in APC. This woman’s 15 floor highrise at Park View of all places has been put on hold.
    As at three years ago, a Danfo for interstate Transport Painted White with two blue strips still came to park in from of her house after the days work.
    After stealing so much, she became an Oligarch and is nw considered a performer for good stealing like Amaechi and Fashola.
    Bag of rotten eggs!

      In an attempt to reward his minions and punish his perceived enemies Buhari always make the worst job appointments any illiterate can make.

  • favourtalk

    • emmanuel

      give MDA’s to Hausa/Fulani and let Yorobber have such offices where Newspapers are the daily routine of the occupants. Unfortunately, this one nor sabi read Newspaper like Osinbajo

  • emmanuel

    i smell a rat here.
    Is this the undertaker Tinubu would use to do the job? Has he become humble so that he could get inroad since the Fulani boys gagged him from meeting Buhari?
    Is the woman coming on board with the same stuff he used to hold down the magistrate her co husband to the Cabinet, will Buhari fall for it, will he eat Abachas apple?
    The future will tell!
