Abuja, Nigeria—The Federal Ministry of Education in Nigeria has approved and granted registration of UPF-Nigeria as an NGO collaborating with the ministry in the education sector. The approval of registration letter dated September 17, 2018, is in response to the application and proposal to the ministry on August 13, 2018, by the UPF-Nigeria secretary general.

According to the letter signed on behalf of the Honorable Minister of Education by Dr Chioma C. J. Nwadei, director of Educational Planning, Research and Development in the Federal Ministry of Education headquarters, “Having satisfied the Ministry’s requirements for registration of an NGO, Universal Peace Federation is now registered with registration number FME/NGO/RN.18/002 and is therefore recognized as a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) intervening and collaborating with the Federal Ministry of Education in the education sector.

By this registration, UPF-Nigeria will be working with the Federal Ministry of Education throughout Nigeria to create a new culture of education for peace, raise a community of educators, strengthen and renew the existing education structure, and as educate for the effective development and utilization of educational infrastructure.
