President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday urged member countries of the G8 Summit to consider 100 per cent cancellation of debts owed them by African countries.

Jonathan, while addressing the G8 Summit in Muskoda Canada, also urged the developed countries to consider the establishment of joint funds for MDG 4 and 5 as priority actions to help co-ordinate and improve the MDG programmes at sub-regional levels in Africa.

He also canvassed for improvement on the commitment of the G8 nations to mutual financial obligations towards fast-tracking the attainment of the millennium development goals particularly in Africa’s health sector.

Jonathan pointed out that the primary health sector in Africa is still plagued with major challenges that could be redressed if development partners, particularly members of the G-8 countries would meet mutual financial commitment contained in the 2005 Gleneagles Agree-ments.

He noted that less than half of the funds promised by development partners by the end of this year have been delivered.
