Njobvuyalema was elected at a conference which took place at Abujah in Nigeria from 9 to 13 March, 2016.

He  has taken up the post after the term of office for the previous office bearers expired.

Njobvuyalema has since promised to bring change on the continent in as far as SDGs are concerns.

“It is an honour to SADC as a region, Malawi as a country and myself as a person, I feel humbled and I will ensure that Malawi planning processes should be in line with the SDGs which have replaced MDGs,” said Njobvuyalema.

The committee’s role will be to help in incorporating SDGs in all governance processes.

At the 70th session of the UN General Assembly, which took place at the UN headquarters in New York, USA, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) after its expiration on December 31, 2015.

During the conference, Tijjani Jobe from Nigeria was elected president while Susan Nakawuki from Uganda was chosen to be vice president.

Senator Fortune Charumbira from Zimbabwe has been elected as second vice president while Boris Maelezo is treasure general.

Njobvuyalema  said the Abuja gathering of African parliamentarians was convened for the sole purpose of discussing parliamentary engagement with the SDGs since the latter were adopted.
