Ambassador Peters Emuze of Nigeria has been elected to the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR).
Emuze joined the very competitive race, beating 6 candidates who came before him. Candidates from Algeria, Sudan, Niger, Uganda, Cameroon and Mauritius had been campaigning a  year before the elections but Nigeria’s candidate, Emuze entered the race barely two months to the election. 
In the end, Cameroon withdrew at the last minute while Mauritius’ candidate defeated Algeria’s in a run-off to clinch the second seat for Africa.

He will now represent the African continent on the panel for the next four years, from 2019 to 2022.

Speaking was Nigeria’s Ambassador/Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN, Samson Itegboje, who said “The victory has raised our profile on the international stage. I don’t think there are many countries that can pull such outing, two months to the election.
“We can call it a miracle but it was a result of hard work, strategy and good relations. Also, we presented the best, as our candidate has got the required experience including being the former Charge d’Affaires at the Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the UN Offices in Geneva.’’ 

Peters Emuze :
“Nigeria long signed the treaty and that means Nigeria is ready to comply with various international human rights instruments as a responsible member of the international community.
“It is also fulfilling one of its foreign policy options. Nigeria is also in tune with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Charter and the African Human Rights Charter. So, Nigeria cannot be aloof to these issues of human rights because they are contemporary, modern times. Nigeria has always believed in the covenants of the United Nations with regards to human rights.’’ 

Emuze is a retired career diplomat for 33 years. He rose to become a Special Grade Director at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and served as Head of Mission at Nigeria’s Permanent Mission in Geneva.
He was President, Conference on Disarmament and Coordinator of the African Group of Ambassadors on World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), leading to the establishment of WIPO offices in Nigeria and Algeria.

CESCR is the body of 18 independent experts that monitors countries’ compliance with the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights of citizens by its States parties.

The committee was established under ECOSOC Resolution 1985/17 of May 28, 1985, to carry out the monitoring functions assigned to the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
