As part of an effort to galvanize cooperation on conflict de-escalation and strengthen national cohesion on the promotion of peace in the country, the Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution
in collaboration with diverse stakeholders is once again working with partners to advocate and sensitize parties in violent conflict across the country on the need to observe a ceasefire on 21 of September and adopt a nonviolent approach to the resolution of conflict.
The Institute added that International Peace Day
is dedicated to promoting the culture of peace amongst people in the world, particularly those in conflict settings or those threatened by violence.
The Director General, Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution who said this while addressing a press conference ahead of the world peace day also added that Nigeria’s disquieting conflict dynamics and manifestations have necessitated the prioritization of conflict resolution.
According the him, “On Tuesday, the 21 of September 2021, countries all over the world will be marking the International Day of Peace or World Peace Day with different activities targeted at realizing the objectives of the theme for the year, “Recovering Better for an Equitable and Sustainable World”.
