UNICEF Appoints Cobhams As Ambassador

Nigerian music producer and singer, Cobhams Asuquo, has been appointed by the United Nation’s Children’s Fund (UNICEF) as its national ambassador.

The representative of the organisation in Nigeria, Peter Hawkins, made the appointment of Cobhams public in a statement in Kaduna on Wednesday.

The appointment means that the producer and songwriter will work with the organisation to create awareness on issues that pertain to children’s rights and also help find solutions to problems around birth registration, immunisation, education and protection from violence.

According to the statement, Cobhams will be the first Nigerian to be appointed for that position for the last 15 years.

“I am delighted to welcome Asuquo to the UNICEF family, particularly on Nigerian Children’s Day, dedicated to every Nigerian child, to give them a better place to survive, thrive and develop,” he said.

“May 27 was set aside to celebrate the importance of children in Nigeria, providing the opportunity to policymakers and families to focus on the holistic development of young Nigerians.”

Hawkins revealed further that Cohbams ‘also produced the song ‘We go Win (Corona)’, to raise awareness on how Nigerians can protect themselves from COVID-19.”

In his reaction to the development, Cohbams revealed that the appointment will further inspire him to further champion issues concerning children and the youths.

“It’s a huge honour to become a UNICEF Nigeria Ambassador. I am thrilled to join the list of UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors around the world, supporting the protection and promotion of children’s rights,” he said.

“I am passionate about children’s rights, and I am passionate about Nigeria – and securing its future and the only way we can truly do that is through ensuring every child fulfilled their potential.

“I look forward to making my contribution to the improvement of the lives of Nigerian children and young people.”
