International Peace Day: UN Charges Nigerians On Peaceful Conduct

-

- Advertisment -

Dr Zebulun Takwa, adviser to the UN Development Programme (UNDP) on Peace and development, has called on Nigerians to take personal responsibility to ensure a peaceful Nigeria.

Takwa told newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja, that Nigeria was going through a challenging moment that require everyone to be part of the solution.
“We are commemorating the International Day of Peace at a very challenging moment; it should be a “wake-up call ” and to ask if this is what Nigeria merits.
“Nigeria does not deserve what is happening on the ground. We all can be part and parcel of seeking for solution.
“We should move from “blame-game” and see how we, who are not part of the problem, can become part of the solution,” he said.
Takwa challenged Nigerians to start asking what he or she could do to put the country on the path of peace and development.
The theme for the 2016 Day is: “The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace”. The Peace Day is commemorated every Sept. 21 in accordance with the UN General Assembly Resolution 55/282 of September 2002.
