On the 4th of April 2013, a clarion call was sounded for all good Citizens of Nigeria to reclaim intrinsic values of nationhood that have been systematically eroded over time, thus creating a gap between the effective works of Government and the direct communication with the populace.

Making this fact known in Abuja  was Danladi Baido, Chairman of the newly inaugurated board of Citizens Network for Peace and Development, CNPD, a non-for profit , non political, inter ethnic and inter religious organization. The Organisation has a mission to create  enabling platforms for bridge building to encourage discourse and dialogue on pertinent issues bordering mainly on peace and development in Nigeria.

Directors presented were Mr Preye Dressman (Director General),  Mr Paul Abbey (Administration),  , Mr Olu Adekunle (Media and Publicity), Mr Okezie Okereke (Finance),Mr Alex Onotare(Deputy Director Research and Starategy) . Other members present include Mr Mike Amoji, Mrs Ifeyinwa Oparaocha, Mr Abdul Jimoh, Miss Bintari Inokoba .

According to Danladi Baido, Membership of the Network is open to all Nigerians regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion or political affiliation. Our goal is simply to move Nigeria forward bearing in mind the sacred principles of equity, patriotism and justice. Now and in the future, we shall be actively involved in the quest for good citizenship and governance and will revolve our activities around this”.

Events lined up towards achievement of the Organizations objectives include sensitization tours and other activities will be unfolded in the coming weeks.

  1. Kudos to you all. I salute your tenacity and sense of purpose. Whilst others are busying themselves with the business of politics, its refreshing to see that there are concerened Nigerians who are take to heart the need to address the fundamentals. Up Citizens Network!!!!! What does membership entail?

    Nice one! There is indeed hope in this country when ‘ordinary’ Nigerians begin to play a part in the national development process. There is no country without people…we need to safe safe guard what is ours. Mr. President said it all in his visit o the northeast…all the conflicts we are experiencing be they religious, political or ethnic have done nothing but draw us back. Thousands of lives have been lost, resources wasted and development generally stunted! The way to go is PEACE. Go ahead Citizens Network, preach the gospel. We are tired!

    I like this…this time around…less talk and more action…. let us pressore the government to page all Nigerians….to give all the chance of voice….eliminate crime and poverty…you need to know how this will work…when and where are you meeting next…what measured is worth doing!!!!
