SEPTEMBER 21st IS INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE!

“On this International Day of Peace, let us pledge to teach our children the value of tolerance and mutual respect.  Let us invest in the schools and teachers that will build a fair and inclusive world that embraces diversity.  Let us fight for peace and defend it with all our might.”

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

Dear Citizen,

The overriding reason for establishing our organization was,, and is to build bridges of unity forE Education for Peace peace and development to be achieved in Nigeria. Our gratitude thus goes out to all of you who participate with online submissions, comments and private messages of support.

In recognition of the need for peace in the world, the International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by resolution 36/37 of the United Nations General Assembly and the first Peace Day was observed in September 1982.

19 Years later in 2001, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted resolution 55/282, which established 21 September as an annual day of non-violence and cease-fire.

We, members and executives of Citizens Network for Peace and Development in Nigeria have taken this gesture a step further by celebrating peace overtures and supporting discussions aimed at promoting peace and development in Nigeria on a daily basis, more so with the recent upsurge of violence in certain parts of our dear country.

We enjoin you to look forward to our celebration of peace next month as we keep you updated on our planned activities.

Thank you for giving development a chance in Nigeria as we celebrate International Day of Peace.
