Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has said that the reappointment of Amina Mohammed to the office of Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations was not a surprise to many because she always blazes the trail in whatever position she finds herself in the service of humanity.

Governor Uzodimma said Amina, like many others, was Nigeria’s gift to the global community and that the country is always proud of her outings both in national and global assignments.

In a statement by Governor Uzodimma’s Chief Press Secretary and Media Adviser, Oguwike Nwachuku, the Governor said Nigerians would have been surprised to hear that Amina was not reappointed given her sterling performance, commitment and dedication to the duty she has been assigned to as UN Deputy Secretary- General.

On Monday, the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, said in a statememt that Amina will continue in her role as Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations during his second term.

The UN scribe had said: “Ms. Mohammed’s leadership helped advance the conceptual shift from the United Nations that member states called for in adopting the Sustainable Development Goals.

“Over the last five years, the United Nations Sustainable Development Group was strengthened to enhance global leadership and oversight for development and the United Nations established a strengthened United Nations Resident Coordinator system as the foundation of a more effective development system.

“The Secretary-General expressed his appreciation for the Deputy Secretary-General’s leadership of the United Nations Sustainable Development Group and her determination to reinforce collective results and maximise the impact of the United Nations development’s system on the ground.

“From our robust response to the socioeconomic effects of the COVID-19 crisis, through a boost in climate action and unprecedented momentum for financing for development, to her strong emphasis on coherence across humanitarian, political and development action, her role was instrumental in keeping the Sustainable Development Goals alive at the country level and protecting the Paris Agreement on climate change, despite significant headwinds.”

Governor Uzodimma said he would not agree less with the UN Scribe on his observations on Amina, adding that her best is even yet to come.

The Imo State Governor prayed the UN to continue to provide an enabling environment that would propel Amina to always unleash her God-given potentials in her office in the interest of the global community.

Governor Uzodimma added that Imo State in particular will continue to support Amina in whatever ways possible in her quest to render selfless services to humanity.

Before assuming her role as Deputy Secretary-General in January 2017, Amina was appointed Nigeria’s Minister of Environment by President Muhammad Buhari, an appointment she acquitted herself creditably before the UN gave the offer.

Earlier in 2015, she was Special Adviser to former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Post‑2015 Development Planning.
