The Commandant-General of the National Unity and Peace Corps (NUPEC) Dr. Chinedu S. Nneji, has assured the federal government that his organisation has a blueprint to generate revenue for the country.
Nneji added that the unrelenting efforts of the current administration to fight corruption, tackling the menace of insurgency and other security challenges in the country is a collective responsibility of all citizens that can only be achieved through passionate responsiveness and patriotic consciousness.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari recently rejected the Peace Corps bill passed by the National Assembly on the ground that the country wasn’t buoyant to finance the organisation
Addressing the National Executive meeting of NUPEC in Abuja, Nneji also revealed his readiness to mobilize his men when legalized as Nigerian Peace Corps to generate revenue for the federal government through some identified avenues of which he has available blueprints, when the bill is passed into law.
Nneji, therefore launched a peace facilitating campaign tagged: “Operation talk the Peace project” to sensitize Nigerians to shun violence, hate speeches and embrace peace especially as the electioneering period approaches.
While asking Nigerians especially members of his organization to have high hope in the government of the day and pray along with them for a successful delivery of lasting dividends of democracy that will touch down on all and sundry, the CG remarked that his organization will not give up on the good will of Mr. President to rescind his decision and position regarding the Peace Corps bill.
For him, the Lagos state commandant, Toyin Moses Ayodele, enjoined the senior officers at the meeting to be positive and ready to showcase themselves as true Peacemakers being chartered meditators.
He charged them to be ready to spread the message of peace to schools, markets, streets, neighborhood, communities and all nooks and crannies of the state.
