The Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission, NCPC Rev. Yakubu Pam was honoured on Thursday with the Award of PEACE and NATIONAL UNITY by members of the Global Peace and Life Rescue Initiative at the NCPC corporate headquarters, Abuja.
Speaking at the presentation of the award, the Executive Secretary said that he takes delight in people who work and strategize to ensure peace, unity and harmony in Nigeria.
He said, “I am so happy that we are beginning to form a community of people who desire that we have an environment of peace for us to co-exist as a people”.
Rev. Pam called on all Nigerians to form peace groups that would handle little crisis in their communities.
According to him, “Most Communities have different crisis but when they team up, government will have little to deal with”.
The NCPC boss urged the Global Peace and Life Rescue Initiative to seek more collaborators in the peace mission, adding that this would create an environment for growth and national development.
He thanked the delegation for their encouragement in his pursuit for peace in the country and for honouring him with an Award.
Earlier, the Director of the Global Peace and Life Initiative, Ambassador Melvin Ejeh informed the Executive Secretary that their visit to the Commission was to appreciate him for contributing to peace in the Country.
”In his words, “We have come to give you this award to thank you for what you are doing, but there is a need for you to do more”.
He explained that if peace is not embraced, it may lead to anarchy because of the fragile situation of the country in terms of security.
Ambassador Ejeh emphasized the need to celebrate our heroes, who have contributed immensely to peace keeping and national development.
He said, “It is sad that we celebrate our heroes only when they are dead, but we choose to celebrate you and your team on your noble peace efforts”.
He reiterated the fact that our National Anthem recognizes the fact that the labour of our heroes past will not be in vain, so there should be conscious effort to celebrate those Nigerians who are contributing immensely to the stability and promotion of peace in the country while they are still very much around.
