Today Nigeria Covers GPF Nigeria's effort to restore peace with Fulani Leaders

Fulani leaders in Southern Kaduna have expressed their commitment to the restoration of peace and calm in the crises-torn area. They made this commitment when a non-governmental organisation, Global Peace Foundation Nigeria (GPFN), on Tuesday met with indigenous Fulani leaders and youths in an effort to proffer solution to the crisis in Southern part of Kaduna State. The meeting which took place at Adara Hall in Kachia under the theme, ‘Active Involvement of Fulanis in Southern Kaduna Peace-building Process’ drew over 80 participants of Fulani extraction across the eight local government areas of Southern Kaduna to discuss how to end the crisis and restore peace and confidence in the area.

Global Peace Foundation Nigeria has been hosting a series of peacebuilding workshops in Kaduna State to promote community cohesion with the support of traditional rulers and government and religious leaders. The One Family under God Campaign workshops focus on changing attitudes and behaviors of individuals and groups by highlighting principles and values that are shared across differing religious traditions.
