PRESS RELEASE - NPAC TEAM 20TH OCTOBER 2016
Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen of the Fourth Realm of the Estate.
All other protocols observed:
A Programme such as the Nigerian Peace Awards and Concert, cannot be the success we seek unless Members of the Fourth Realm of the Estate are fully informed and agree to take a stand for peace. This is what informed this meeting today.
Nigeria Peace Awards and Concert is designed to become not only the flagship of awards for peace but to become the "biggest and most influential award for peace event and concert in Nigeria" it is a melting pot for those driving peace initiatives in its entirety and from every known facet to bring about peace, love and unity to our nation.
We Are The Peace We Seek
"Peace lies not in the external world.
It lies within one's own soul.
-RALPH WALDO TRINE
Never has inner peace and brotherly love seemed further from human lives than now! We have all become restless in our pursuit of so many benefits of life to the extent we all have the word "hurry" stamped on our national face, now reflected even in our personal names. If you say Nigeria in a committee of other nations, they see you immediately as a man or a woman in a hurry- Pat Utomi once said that Nigeria is such in a hurry that it so quickly dresses up with no where to go! Such is a hurry that has characterised our national life to the relegation of peace.
It makes no difference how long we have pursued peace in our personal creed or political inclination, peace will elude us if we have not learned to trust God and not afraid how to live through our days. John Herman Randall warns that as long as we are still worried about things or people, if we continue to dread the future of possible sickness or old age...
"...if we cannot see beyond the shadows of death,
'the light that never was on land or sea'-
then, whatever faith may be to others it is quite
meaningless for us;
for faith that saves is the faith that develops in us
the consciousness of God, and when we know that,
we know peace."
The consciousness of God is in his works, and consciously, Nigerians are a hardworking people as exemplified by our nominees, this consciousness mean to us the organizers to recognize peace heroes of our time. For in the recognition of our fellow men who have made indelible, unforgettable contribution to peace, we believe will engender peace and proliferate peace related activities to a point where it becomes a national lifestyle.
The Owele of Onitsha, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, the "Zik of Africa" once said that the problem of Africa is her lack of enthusiasm in celebrating their homegrown heroes... This initiative, the Nigerian Peace Awards and Concert is deliberately sculptured to fill this yawning gap in our nation quest to bring lasting peace for all. What with the issue of insurgents, suicide merchants, the age long menace of "Fulani Herdsmen", the bitting economic realities and the search for lasting peace in the Niger-Delta and other known threat to national peace and security, this suggest we must all contribute to a harmonious co-existence.
This programme is coming at a time where peace is the only menu on our table, the only agenda worth the discuss as a nation. Riding on the theme: Give Peace A Chance, the programme will be spiced by musical concert for peace by peace minded artiste. The event which is designed by the BEgroup Professionals, a body of individuals made up of heads of corporate firms working for posterity is anchored by Recreate Nigeria Limited a registered company with the CAC, working alongside other corporate organizations, stakeholders, the media particularly, the publics and government agencies, will be giving out 24Awards to persons, group and corporations who are standing for peace from yesterday, today and tomorrow.
The event which will hold at the Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, will host only 200 audience that will be admitted into the hall strictly on invitation. The Keynote Address will be delivered by a foremost Motivational Speaker in Nigeria based in Lagos, Joel Oni, - TMM.
We wish like Orits Williki, to one day say of our nation: "Peace Has Returned. Peace Atlast!"
