I Was Made ‘Minister Of Dustbin’ in Nigeria – Amina

The deputy secretary-general of the United Nations (UN), Amina Mohammed has disclosed that she was seen as the dustbin lady by virtue of her appointment as Minister of Environment.

She made this disclosure while speaking at the International Monetary (IMF) on Tuesday.

President Buhari appointed Mohammed in November 2015. She resigned from Nigerian Federal Executive Council on 24 February 2017 to assume office as the 5th Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations.

“I have to tell you, when I went back to Nigeria as minister of environment, my state was saying, it was environment they gave you? that is the dustbin lady. They did not even get that environment was broader than just waste disposal,” she told Lagarde and a room full of development experts.

She said the UN and IMF must have better conversations on the demands of a growing economy, seeking ways to make growth better and inclusive.
