From Halima AbdulKadir, Abuja

Honourable Zainab Gimba, a member of the House of Representatives representing Ngala, Bama and Kala Balge on Wednesday visited the Abuja corporate office of Neptune Prime, an emerging leader in online journalism in Nigeria and an authority on North East news, located in the Yobe Investment House.

Gimba, a PhD holder in Public Administration and Policy Analysis from the University of Abuja is the vice-chairman, House Committee on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and also the chairperson of the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians, African Region and vice-chairperson, Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians International.

While commending Neptune Prime as a champion of developmental journalism and a gateway to the North East, Dr Gimba said she was impressed with the way the medium highlights the efforts of the governors of the North East, “especially that of my state, Borno, Professor Zulum and Yobe, Honourable Buni, in their bids to provide the much-needed dividends of democracy”.

Soliciting for more publicity for the governors, she said “our states have been devastated by insurgency and environmental calamities; the governors are working round the clock to ensure their people pick up their socio-economic lives. Please highlight their noble activities”.

She also called on not only women from these states but every individual to avail themselves of the “Sustainable Development Goals, a global agenda adopted by countries in 2015 with the aim of ending poverty and ensuring that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.”

Honourable Gimba also seized on the opportunity of the visit to rally support for President Muhammadu Buhari whose administration she said is desirous to implement the SDGs 17 goals “which are basically to ensure zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, industry innovation and infrastructure, reduction of inequalities,  urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts, promoting peaceful and inclusive societies”.
