Amina Mohammed of Nigeria will continue to serve as the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General.
Antonio Guterres, the United Nations Secretary-General, stated on Monday that the former Minister of the Environment would continue in her position during his second term.
The UN scribe set in motion the most ambitious transformation in the history of the organization’s development system by transferring development coordination to the Deputy Secretary-General.
Mohammed served as Nigeria’s Minister for Environment since November 2015, as well as Special Adviser to previous UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Post-2015 Development Planning, until being named Deputy Secretary-General in January 2017.
She served as Special Adviser on the Millennium Development Goals for three successive Nigerian administrations before joining the UN, offering guidance on matters relating to poverty, public sector reform, and sustainable development, as well as coordinating poverty reduction measures.
