Afrique Avenir Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday urged member-states of the African Union (AU) to implement the “far-reaching decisions” taken at the closing of the 15th AU summit in Kampala, Uganda, APA learns on Wednesday from reports monitored in Lagos.
The reports quote Jonathan as saying, when giving the vote of thanks as “newest” president, that decisions around the theme of the summit “Maternal, Infant and Child Health Development in Africa” were particularly inspiring.
He added that the summit succinctly deliberated on the constraints of resources to executing articulated programmes of the Union as well as the failure of some development partners to redeem their pledges of support.
He, however, called on member-states not to relent in their efforts at implementing the decisions of the summit.
Jonathan noted that his first outing to the summit as the president of Nigeria was rewarding and fulfilling as he had been able to establish personal contacts and rapport with many of his colleagues at the summit.
“I look forward to deepening the relationships established in the months ahead as we face our national and global challenges together,’’ he said.
