Prof.Peter Okebukola, a former Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), has identified peace as an essential ingredient for African countries to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
Okebukola made this known in an interview with the EDUCATION ROADMAP in Ota, Ogun State.
The former NUC boss noted that peace was an ingredient for archieving sustainable SDGs, saying that development is being hampered and had remained stunted in many Afrucan countries due to the absence of peace occasioned by pockets of unresolved issues.
“All what Africa Countries need to do is to look for ingredient of peace which includes good leadership and governance.
“When there is good leadership and governance, most people would be happy and when people are happy and there are no military interventions, kidnapping and other vices will crash,” he said.
This, he said, would help most African Countries to drive toward achieving SDGs by 2030.
The NUC boss said that the challenges of not achieving peace would continue to drag Africa Countries back towards the SDGs, if this problem was not proactively solved address by them.
