A resolution, being sponsored by Nigeria to declare January 24 every year as the International Day of Education, is expected to pass overwhelmingly at the United Nations General Assembly today Monday.

Nigeria’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN, Tijjani Bande, said in New York that there had been no dissenting voice against the Nigeria-led resolution.

The resolution is being co-sponsored by Ireland, Singapore, and Qatar, in partnership with the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, UN Children’s Fund, UN Women and Collegiate Congress.

Bande expressed confidence that the resolution would be overwhelmingly supported by all UN Member States; saying no fewer than 30 countries have already publicly declared their support to Nigeria on the resolution.
