Building Peace - The Only Alternative to a Failed Nigerian State

Nigeria is battling internal conflicts and external insurgencies which threaten the country's future, and which have become a burning issue across the nation. AllAfrica and our colleagues at Premium Times interviewed peace and conflict specialist Dr. Jibrin Ibrahim in 2019 about the peacebuilding challenges which confront the country, including attacks by religious extremists, the shortcomings of military and police responses to nationwide violence, the need for more engagement from civilian and religious leaders, and competition for resources - whether land, water or earnings from oil production.
