One of her major achievements is championing global recognition for Nigeria's efforts in achieving the SDGs. Under her guidance, Nigeria successfully conducted country-led evaluations of SDG-3 on quality health and well-being for all and SDG-4 on qualitative and inclusive education and lifelong learning for all. This milestone makes Nigeria the first country in the Global South to conduct independent SDG policy evaluations, showcasing our nation's dedication to evidence-based decision-making and sustainable development.

Moreover, Nigeria has also gained international acclaim as the firstX country to launch the Integrated National Financing Framework (INFF) globally. Princess Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire played a pivotal role in designing this framework, which maps out a sustainable financing plan to ensure Nigeria's commitment to the SDGs is met. The INFF serves as a blueprint for aligning national development strategies with the SDGs, enabling effective resource allocation towards priority areas. This achievement signifies Nigeria's determination to secure the necessary financial resources to drive sustainable development.

Princess Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire's leadership has also extended beyond Nigeria's borders. She spearheaded Nigeria's sponsorship of United Nations resolution A/77/L.64 on Strengthening Voluntary National Reviews through Country-led Evaluation. This resolution received support from twenty-four countries, including Russia, China, Jamaica, Senegal, and South Africa, further highlighting Nigeria's influence and commitment to promoting robust evaluation mechanisms for monitoring SDG progress worldwide.

Today, we recognize Princess Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire's tireless efforts in advancing sustainable development in Nigeria. Her strategic vision, collaborative partnerships, and innovative initiatives have positioned Nigeria as a trailblazer in the SDG implementation journey. As we celebrate her well-deserved SDGs Champion Award, let us continue to support and amplify her impactful work, driving Nigeria towards a more sustainable and prosperous future.
