The following is an excerpt from an article written by Ibrahim Hassan-Wuyo for Vanguard news.

Rev. John Joseph Hayab who was represented by the Documentation Officer of GPF Nigeria, Rimpyen Danjuma, said “Recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”

He added that durable peace and attainment of a violence-free society hinges on recognizing and respecting the fundamental human rights of all humans in the society.

Speaking further, Rev. Hayab said, “Global Peace Foundation Nigeria strongly holds on the vision of One Family under God. Therefore the Foundation continue to preach and advocate that irrespective of tribe, religion or ethnicity, all humans have one ancestral root, hence must accept and treat one another as brothers and sisters.”

He said, “Members of a family are known to love, tolerate and protect not violate one another’s rights.”
