Making The Vision Of The United Nations A Reality By Peter Katchy

The world faces many grave challenges such as widening conflicts and inequality, extreme weather and deadly intolerance as well as security threats,

including nuclear weapons. United Nations has the tools and wealth to overcome these challenges. Its target is to achieve human rights and dignity for all people; to build a peaceful world and ensure sustainable development. 
All the member states of the United Nations contribute finances to its operation to help further its goals. Aside from world peace, its role has grown to include protecting human rights, promoting social and economic development, providing aid around the world in cases of famine, natural disaster and armed conflict. They offer medical assistance to those in need as well as provide clean water, food, and places to rest and recover. Its original intent was to replace the League of Nations and prevent another war like the Second World War from occurring. 
There are several basic rights and privileges enjoyed by people in the world today as a result of the work done by the United Nations. Recently, access to the internet was declared a basic human right, a declaration which ensures that everyone has access to the worldwide information and communication network. While this does not guarantee that everyone will have the ability to access the internet, it does guarantee that everyone has the right to.
The United Nations also represents series of specialized agencies that enable it do its job on each of the areas, focusing on groups like Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO); the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA); United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF); United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); International Labour Organisation (ILO); World Bank; International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Health Organization (WHO), among others. The World Health Organization is its specialized agency that is concerned with International public health. Presently, 194 sovereign nations of the world are members and signatories to WHO Memorandum of Understanding and collaborative partnerships of which Nigeria is a strong member.
United Nations Organization is the most formidable organization in the world that has succeeded in steering the entire universe out of conflagrations, nuclear holocaust, and global extermination in spite of wanton terrorism, violence, hatred, animosities, racial and religious intolerance.
The global body has piloted the affairs of the world and has moved with shared vision of humanity and social contract between the world’s leaders and the people. Recently, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which was central to World Economic and Social order, ended in 2015 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals commenced with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction of 2015 to 2030.
Therefore, Nigeria, as a member of United Nations Organization, should set-up formidable teams to implement the notable initiatives, programmes of actions of United Nations General Assembly and all the Agencies of the United Nations Organization in order to steer the nation out of economic quagmire and move towards peace, prosperity and posterity.
United Nations is a forum of global interventions, mediations, sustainable development, growth and stability. Let us make this vision a reality!
