The chief field officer of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Bauchi State, Mr. Bhanu Pathak, has commended the six states under the Bauchi Field Office for their contribution towards the implementation of its programmes worth $90million in 2018.
Pathak, however said that despite the successes recorded, especially in Jigawa State, UNICEF still faces challenges such as counterpart funding from the Gombe State government.
Other states under the Bauchi Field Office are Plateau, Adamawa and Taraba.
He stated this during the opening ceremony of the 2018 end of year review and 2019 planning meeting for states supported by UNICEF at Emerald Hotel, Gombe.
Bhanu said that the support and programmes executed in the states were aimed at improving the living conditions of children in the areas of water and sanitation, education, health and nutrition.
On the challenges faced in Gombe, Bhanu said: “You can see that we are not up to the satisfactory level, however, we have received good counterpart funding in Jigawa. In Gombe there are issues, we are still trying our best, but we are struggling with counterpart funding.”
