Across Nigeria

Peace Corps gains Ministerial Support; to submit proposal on lasting peace across the Niger Delta region.

The Honorable Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, Useni Useni today the 30th of August, 2016, received in his Office, delegations of the National Executive Council of the #PeaceCorpsofNigeria led by the National Commandant, Amb (Dr) Dickson A.O. Akoh.

The Minister in a gesture of pleasure warmly received the entire team for the visit. While commending the management for their efforts so far, he affirmed the need for more security across the nation as the rate of crime remains on the high.
As a resultant, he noted how important it would be to the Nigerian populace and the country at large, when the National Assembly and Mr President finally establish the operation of the Peace Corps of Nigeria under the Federal Government.

While affirming his total support for the Corps, he requested that the National Commandant and his Management Council draw up a proposal with a view to how the Peace Corps of Nigeria can bring about lasting peace across the Niger Delta Region. The Honourable Minister expressed confidence on the Corps for being a needed stimulant for enduring peace and asserted that whenever the organisation requires the guardians, services and support of the Ministry of Niger Delta, it would gladly be available.

Dr Dickson Akoh earlier addressed the Honorable Minister and disclosed that Peace Corps of Nigeria is fully represented in all the Local Government Areas cut across States of the Niger Delta region. 

While substantively revealing the extent of support that the Peace Corps of Nigeria has given the Security Agencies across the Niger Delta region, he enumerated on the magnitude of work and accomplishments achieved by State Commandants and Officers of the seven Niger Delta States. The Ambassador thus noted that the Corps would be more effective after the Federal Government gives statutory backing to the Organization.

Dr Akoh also showed delight at the audience granted by the Honourable Minister and displayed deep humility at his unalloyed support. Expressing his gratitude, he stated that the Corps will graciously present the proposal on lasting peace as directed and will not relent in her efforts in youth empowerment, training and reorientation.
