The United Nations, UN, has pledged commitment to renewing its mission in securing peace and prosperity for all across nations and in Nigeria in particular.


Reports show there have been significant achievements in the areas of peace, security, health, and humanitarian assistance among other engagements, since the inception of the UN-Nigeria joint cooperation

This cooperation led to the existence of 24 UN agencies active in Nigeria, today and touches every state and the FCT in the country.


The UN mission in Nigeria, used the occasion of the 77th United Nations day to exhibit its works in the country, showcasing the breadth and depth of projects implemented in the 35 states and the FCT.

Addressing the Assemblage, the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Matthias Schmale, stressed that actualizing the ideals and values of the mission in order to attain peaceful coexistence cannot be overemphasized in spite of the numerous threats of climate change, conflict, COVID-19 among others.

Mr Schmale noted that since the inception of the UN on October 24th, 1945, the mission had determined to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which had brought untold sorrow to mankind, hence its constant engagements to promote peace and stability across the globe.


According to Matthias who was represented by the World Health Organization Country Representative in Nigeria, Dr. Walter Mulombo, in order to drive the vision, the mission is already making preparations for the signing of a new Cooperation Framework aimed at re-establishing their strong support to the Nigerian Government and the people. Stressing that the framework will serve as a guide for joint cooperation in the next 5 years.

The theme for this year’s UN Day is “The UN and Nigeria: Partner for Peace, Prosperity and Sustainable Development” which is a kind of pledge to uphold their core mandate by leaving no one behind, especially the most vulnerable.
