The Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution IPCR has called on Nigerians to pray for peace and stability as Nigeria joins the rest of the world in celebrating this year’s workers’ day and eid-el-fitri celebration.
In a statement, the apex peace organisation also asked Nigerians to pray especially in this period of electioneering for the peaceful conduct of the 2023 polls.
The Peace Research Agency which is also a think-tank of the Federal Government on peace and conflict resolution, with the mandate of promoting and building peace, added that what the country needs at this point is uniting against the evil forces that are undermining peaceful cohesion.
This statement wishes to remind Nigerians to stand on the side of peace and remain law-abiding.
It says as the nation celebrates eid-el-Fitri which marks the end of Ramadan, Nigerians should take a sober reflection, and connect their hearts to God in the spirit of the season for the restoration of the nation.
