The planned Peace, Unity and National Integration Summit under the auspices of the Christian and Muslim youth leaders in Nigeria is expected to explore challenges to peace and unity in the West African Nation.
Addressing journalists Wednesday, September 29 in Abuja, the leaderships of the Youth Wing Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) and the National Council of Muslim Youth Organization said the Summit that is scheduled to take place during the first week of November is a response to the increasing cases of insecurity in Africa’s most populous nation.
“I am happy to let you know today that we are proposing a Peace, Unity and National Integration Summit, which is the first of its kind in the history of Nigeria,” YOWICAN Chairman, Belusochukwu Enwere said.
Mr. Enwere noted, “Nigeria is facing a lot of challenges in all parts; the Christian and Muslim Youth are coming together to ensure that they maintain peace and unity in the country.”
The planned Summit, he said, will be designed to “create an all-inclusive and interactive platform anchored by the youth of Nigeria under the two leading religious organizations towards charting a noble course for achieving the goal of a peaceful, secured and sustainable Nigeria.”
