Goodwill Message by Oxfam in Nigeria at the Training for Community Women and Men on Livelihood Needs Assessment, Budgeting, Taxation and Influencing, Holding at Gold Value Hotel, Upper Chime Avenue, Enugu, March 14-15, 2017

The Commissioner for Gender Affairs and Social Develoment Honorable Princess Peace Nnaji, Mr. Nnanyelugo Dan Onyishi, Executive Secretary, Enugu State Economic Planning Commission, Mrs Mabel Chinwe Agbo SPA to the Governor on MDG/SDGs, Mr. Uche Nnadi SSA to the Governor on Domestic and Foreign Aid,  Civil Society Partners, Ladies and Gentlemen, please permit me to stand on all established protocols.

 It is with great pleasure that I deliver this goodwill message on behalf of Oxfam in Nigeria as we embark on this important exercise today. Let me start by expressing our profound gratitude to the Governor of Enugu State for allowing Oxfam the space that has made this training possible. Recall, between November 28 and December 1, 2016, Oxfam in Nigeria and its partners conducted a two Day training for selected MDAs across four states in Enugu on Resource Mobilization and Fiscal Governance. Subsequently, we held the second batch of the training in February 2017 and today, we are here again to continue the training support.

 Oxfam’s mission all over the world is to foster a just world without poverty. In Nigeria, Oxfam works with and through Civil Society partner organizations in the areas of Economic Justice/Livelihoods, Humanitarian programming, Advancing Gender Justice / Female Leadership and Good governance, adopting a rights based approach.  We do this guided by the three pillars that underpin our work – empowered citizens, fostering participatory, transparent and accountable governance and enabling men and women participate in and benefit equally from the process of development. We are only able to actualize this mission by working in collaboration with various actors and stakeholders – citizens, civil society organizations, international institutions, private sector players, governments amongst others. This is because the journey to a just world, and indeed a just Nigeria without poverty is one that no one entity can undertake alone. It requires broad based collaborations with everyone playing their respective roles to the best of their abilities. Governments must create an enabling context that expands the productive capacity of the economy, private sector actors have to commit to fostering markets that are equitable and deliver shared value to all, with citizens willing and able to actively engage with the governance process, and to be the drivers of their journey to a better life devoid of poverty.

The purpose of this training is to equip community women and men with the requisite skills, fiscal knowledge and information to be able to identify their Needs, prioritize them and link up with the relevant institution.

Specifically, the training has the following objectives;

·        To strengthen the capacity of 200 women and 175 men on community needs and sustainable livelihood assessment in Enugu state within 3 years.

·        To build the capacity of 200 women and 175 men on budget monitoring and preparation of shadow budgeting in Enugu state within 3 years.

·        To facilitate the emergence of a critical mass of informed community members on fiscal issues through training in Enugu state  by June  2019.

·        To promote the creation of linkages between community women groups, existing platforms on budget monitoring and tax justice. 

These objectives align with the four Point Agenda of Enugu State Government, especially the agenda on enhanced social services and good governance. They also resonate with Oxfam’s mission and vision in Nigeria of actualizing a Just Nigeria Without Poverty.

The planned two (2) Day training is funded by Oxfam’s Finance for Development (F4D) project under the Strategic Partnership Initiative supported by the Dutch Government, and being implemented in four states of Nigeria: Enugu, Rivers, Delta, Lagos States and the FCT. The projected longterm outcome of the project is to create a situation of improved policies and practices of government and private sector to result in reduced poverty and extreme inequality through more effective and efficient management of Nigeria’s tremendous resources and increased citizen participation.

Oxfam in Nigeria is very happy to welcome you to this important training event holding today and tomorrow. We again express our heartfelt gratitude to the Government of Enugu State for collaborating with Oxfam to make this training a reality.  We also thank our partners (Niger Delta Budget Monitoring Group (NDEBUMOG), and the KEBETKACHE Women Development & Resource Center) for their support and contributions towards ensuring that the planned objectives of this training are realized. We commend all the community women and men who have made time to participate in this training. We urge you to please utilize the opportunity being offered to enhance your knowledge in the issue areas to be discussed, for the improvement of your state, LGAs, and your communities.

Oxfam once more welcomes us to this great occasion and look forward to our effective participation in the training.

Thank you and God bless you all.     

 

Mr. Celestine Okwudili ODO,

Programme Coordinator, Governance,

Oxfam in Nigeria
