The messenger of peace, an NGO advocated for peaceful coexistence between Nigerians, unveiled the "queen of peace in Nigeria" on Tuesday and defended the crusaders for national peace and unity.
The Nigerian press (NAN) reports that the "announcement" took place during the press conference following the Group's 2019 National Peace Prize at the African First Women's Peace Mission (AFLPM) Hall in Abuja.
Dr. Suleiman Adejo, chairman of the messenger of peace who spoke on behalf of the group, said that "Queens of Peace Nigeria" is a collection of Queens Beauty who volunteered to spread the message of peace.
"These queens of peace will be responsible for various peace-related advocacy as their own small contribution to our country's peaceful coexistence.
"The main purpose is to promote peace in Nigeria and abroad, regardless of tribe, gender or religion.
"This is consistent with our vision of promoting a culture of peace by organizing national and international volunteer projects in accordance with the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria," he said.
Suleiman stated that the group was set to respect Nigerians from all backgrounds and contributed in various ways to national peace and harmony at the 2019 National Peace Awards.
According to him, there are not only the ordinary Nigerian who sacrificed for peace, but also the government features and organizations listed for awards at the event.
"Our main purpose is to encourage those who have promoted peace in various ways and to thank them for their genuine interest.
"We promise to do this year again to tell peacemakers throughout Nigeria that they are our heroes and pride.
"Therefore, some of the Nigerians who have promoted peace in various ways at the Transscope Hilton Hotel on July 5 will receive awards in various categories at the National Peace Awards.
"We are fed up with confusion and bloody, which is the message this sends out as we celebrate these fine ambassadors of our great country," he said.
The organizers stated that the Federal Traffic Safety Corps (FRSC) and other relevant government agencies, as well as civil society groups support the initiative.
Norri Wood actor and chairman of the Planning Committee, Bob-Manuel Udokwu, said the event was to convey a message of national peace to all Nigerians.
"There is no meaningful development that can occur in a chaotic society without peace and harmony.
"Thus, all Nigerians who want our country should raise their voices against inconsistencies and violence and support this movement for peace," he said.
