Embrace peace to allow progress, development of Nigeria – NGO Director, Adeleye appeals

Peace and Social Advancement Centre (PASAC), a Non-Governmental Organization dedicated to peace building and social development in Nigeria, is calling on all Nigerians and Non-Nigerians resident in the country, to jettison violence and conflict for dialogue and peace.

PASAC is making this clarion call against the backdrops of current realities in the country as evident in the call and agitation for secession, communal clashes, Fulani-Herder crises, perceived superiority of one ethnic group against another, banditry, arson, kidnapping, sexual violence, among other heinous crimes against humanity.

In as much as PASAC noted that conflict is inexcusable in human environments, it however posits that people should see beyond present challenges and collaborate to real support our fore fathers’ efforts on nation building and one Nigeria mantra which are premised on equity, justice and fairness for a better, secure and peaceful Nigeria.

A statement signed in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital on Monday to celebrate 2021 International Peace Day on Tuesday 21st, September, 2021, the Executive Director of the Centre, Fẹ́mi Adélẹyẹ, appealed to all Nigerians and Non-Nigerians resident in the country, to shun divisive comments, hate speech and avoid criminal elements who want to destabilise the relative peace the country is enjoying.

Speaking on the 2021 International Peace Day tagged, “Recovering for an Equitable and Sustainable World”, Adélẹyẹ urges for sacrifice towards recovering from current challenges hold the country back and work for more peace and stability of the country.

Peace and Social Advancement Centre wants to remind Nigerians that no Nation can grow and reach her full potentials amidst conflict and instability, hence we all must put peace first in the interests of progress and development of our dear Nigeria. This is the time for us all to unite to build strong and inclusive institution.

“This Year International Peace Day is a reminder to Government at all levels to put more efforts in combating insecurity and create enabling environments through good governance for socio-economic growth and development, economic opportunities and poverty alleviation in order to ensure a lasting cordiality and peaceful co-habitation among all tribes in the country.

Long Live Federal Republic of Nigeria!

Long Life Africa!!

Long Live the Whole World!!!
