President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday in Addis Ababa said that the post-2015 UN anti-poverty Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) agenda must reflect the wishes of developing nations.

Jonathan made the declaration in a meeting on post 2015 Development Agenda at the 22nd Ordinary Summit of the African Union (AU). He noted that African leaders had voiced the need to ensure that the unfinished business of the MDGs was carried into the MDGs successor agenda. ”There is need for us to remain focused and vigilant to ensure that decisions on what forms the new framework is all inclusive, reflecting the wishes of developing countries” he said. Jonathan affirmed Africa common position on the post-2015 Development Agenda as set out in the AU policy document of March 2013.
