CITIZENS NETWORK FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT BERTHS IN ABUJA
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.

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.
