According to the Head of Mission-Nigeria, international Peace Commission (IPC-Nigeria), Amb Hussaini Coomassie, he called on Nigerians to join hands with IPC to massively plant trees across the country as climate change is devastating the world and Nigeria isn’t left out.
He urges all those carrying arms against the State to desist from the act and embrace peace.
” I want to urge all those carrying arms against the State [militants, bandits, kidnappers and other terror groups] to please lay down their arms and embrace peace as that the the only solution we need in the country,” he begged.
He also added that no development or progress comes to any country without peace. “Violence doesn’t pay, peace does,”he concluded.
