Dr Rhoda Asikia Ige spoke on “The Search for Peace in a Divided World: An African Feminist Perspective”, which she clarified an Africa feminist as someone who takes a holistic perspective on issues in the society and sees how it affect the men, children and their neighbor while western feminist takes issues that affect the women alone. So she finally advised women to stand up and sue for peace.
A youth peace builder Victoria Ibiwoye talked on Together for Peace and what it takes to be a peace builder from her own experience she advised the youth not to leave peace for only bigger organizations like UN they should look at their surroundings and start making a change from the little problem they see around them.
You can never make Peace without justice said by Dr. Femi Badejo. He spoke on Together for Peace: A Personal Experience.
