COMMEMORATING THE UN INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION: SPECIAL ASSEMBLY OF AMBASSADORS FOR PEACE ON TRIBALISM AND ETHNICITY IN NIGERIA


As part of activities to commemorate the 2019 UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the Universal Peace Federation - Nigeria is convening a Special Assembly of Ambassadors for Peace and other critical stakeholders to deliberate on the increasing challenges of tribalism/ethnicity in Nigeria.

Nigeria is a multicultural and multi-ethnic nation and despite its existence for over 105 years after the amalgamation of the ethnic nationalities in 1914, Nigerians are increasingly becoming more affiliated to their tribes and ethnic groups than being national citizens. This ugly situation constitutes a threat to national unity and integration. To this end, the assembly shall discuss issues and strategies for strengthening national unity and integration as well as recommend contemporary strategies for overcoming tribalism in Nigeria.

Several Ambassadors for Peace, public government officials, religious and tribal leaders are being mobilized to attend the program. There shall be a special presentation on the concept of "Heavenly Tribal Messiahs Program".

Location National Merit Award House, Maitama, Abuja
