The Commandant General of National Unity and Peace Corps (NUPEC), Dr. Chinedu Nneji, has called for equity, justice and fairness in Nigeria to ensure peace.
Nneji made this call yesterday at an occasion to mark this year's United Nations International Peace Day as well as 25th anniversary of NUPEC in Abuja.
"In our country today, we have quite a number of conflicts that threaten our corporate existence as a nation," adding that "the only way to resolve the differences among citizens was to ensure equity, justice and fairness."
He also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the Nigerian Peace Corps bill into law to allow the body immediately commence the process of resolving all the conflicts in the country.
In his message to mark the day, the United Nations Secretary General, Antonio Guterres said "together, let us stand up against bigotry and for human rights. Together, let us build bridges. Together, let us transform fear into hope."
He said the focus of this year's International Peace Day was on engaging people throughout the world to show support for refugees and migrants.
