I think what the President is saying is correct frica still behind in meeting SGs goals, but I think leaders are not on the same at the level they understand what SGs is, what it means, what the objectives are, once understood that the whole planning must be in line with 17 goals include, from there they will come to know how to evaluate themselves in reaching out to the expectations by 2030.
Howver, since 2015, the SDGs are in place but I doubt if even where it has been in implemented, people really know what it is ? Are Leaders at all level understand it ? We still have more 10 years to go I think a lot of effort must put in place to crate awareness about the SGDs, countries translating it in their local language, youth been told about it because, they are future leaders, Women being included, PWDs etc.. otherwise reaching them without clear strategies based on the guidelines given by UN will be hard.
In Rwanda we are trying but let us do more and make them know country wide.Thus by designing program and projects in line with SGDs. If we do not plan carefully even Agenda 2063 : Africa we want: wil be hard to reach too because it works hand in hand with SDGs.Good Luck Rwanda let us together move ahead
