Nigerian youths take lead in peace building for the community
On October 27th, ‘Discussion on the Action Plan of the HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee’ hosted by IWPG (International Women Peace Group) and IPYG (International Peace Youth Group) was held at Kano Hospital Digital Conference Hall in Kano, Nigeria. About 20 representative members in the ‘Patriotic Youth Organisation of Nigeria’ (PYON) and around 30 audiences attended this seminar and devised practical plans for supporting the DPCW (Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War) and advocating the ‘Implementation of the International Law’ for peace. The PYON is a cooperating group with HWPL for peace activities in Nigeria, whose membership has reached 20, 000. It has diverse field members, including professors, lawyers, and journalists. It has tried to make their community a better place for Nigerians to live.
At the DPCW by the global community through the global peace summit, held in Republic of Korea, named the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit, PYON chairman, AbdulAziz Seymour Omololu delivered a speech, where he highlighted the importance of civil society’s role in raising public awareness and collective action for peace-building projects.
He said: “I’d like to introduce the 2nd Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit and explain the Strategy Road map of the DPCW, and its action plan. And we will discuss how we drive the national support for it. We will decide how we collaborate and precede signature campaigns, as a way of support.”
After watching the video, Mr. Adam Sa’id, Vice president of PYON, said: “I was very excited by the audience reaction, which showed that they really understood what the DPCW is all about and their readiness to give their contribution of developing and making it a legally binding document. I also felt extremely happy to see that the audience was really impressed with the letter from the chairman of HWPL, Man Hee Lee.”
The DPCW was drafted with the intent of promoting the respect of fundamental human rights and an international law, and of further involving States in the active protection of those rights.
As a part of action plan, currently, ‘Discussion on the Action Plan of the HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee’ is the first step in realisation of peace in Nigeria.
In this regard, HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee in Kano State also holds monthly discussion to examine the results of their activities and to attain 20, 000 signatures for supporting the DPCW. Nigeria takes one step forward to the real peace and is ready to propel drawing Nigerians’ attention on it with this discussion.
