SDG 6 Reference — General Debate 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly

Statement by His Excellency Mr. Issoufou Mahamadou, President of the Republic of Niger

 

My wish was to see Niger undergo a transformation on all levels: political, economic and social. The balance sheet of ten years of implementation of the rebirth program is largely positive. We built roads, electrified villages, developed telecommunications infrastructure, nurtured Nigeriens thanks to the 3N initiative "Nigeriens Feed the Nigeriens ", educated and cared for our children, promoted access to water and sanitation and finally, created jobs, particularly for youth. Moreover, despite threats from organizations terrorists and criminals who shake the Sahel and the Lake Chad Basin, we have managed to preserve the integrity of our territory.
