Ambassador Agim Godwin Apple, has this to tell the Youths and members of HRWF,

Nigeria of today requires Peace and reconciliation, and I can indeed explain categorically that only peace and reconciliation can bring development to society in several ways:

  1. Economic Growth: Conflict and violence can disrupt economic activities, scare away investors, and destroy infrastructure. When peace is achieved, businesses can flourish, investments can increase, and economic growth can thrive. This leads to job creation and improved living standards for individuals and communities.
  2. Education and Healthcare: In conflict-affected areas, education and healthcare often suffer due to limited resources, displacement, and insecurity. Peaceful societies enable the development and improvement of educational systems, making quality education more accessible to all. Similarly, with a stable environment, healthcare systems can expand and provide better services, which helps in reducing mortality rates and improving overall well-being.
  3. Social Cohesion: Conflict often leads to divisions and mistrust within societies. Peace and reconciliation processes aim to bridge these gaps, foster social cohesion, and build trust among different groups. This creates a sense of unity and solidarity, which can enhance cooperation, reduce discrimination, and promote social integration, leading to a more harmonious society.
  4. Infrastructure Development: In conflict-ridden areas, infrastructure is often neglected or destroyed. Peace allows governments and international organizations to focus on rebuilding and developing critical infrastructure like roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals. Improved infrastructure enhances connectivity, commerce, and access to basic services, thereby fostering development.
  5. Sustainable Development: Conflict typically degrades the environment and hampers sustainable development initiatives. Peace and reconciliation provide a conducive environment for addressing environmental challenges, promoting sustainable practices, and ensuring the long-term well-being of societies. Moreover, peace can lead to more effective collaborations on issues like climate change, resource management, and environmental protection.

It is important to note that peace and reconciliation are complex and interconnected processes, and their impact on development can vary depending on the specific social, economic, and political contexts. However, it is widely recognized that resolving conflicts and building a peaceful society are essential prerequisites for sustainable development.

It was a memorable day as the people perceived the aroma of coming together once again and agitated for Human Rights existence in their region.
