The Peace Corps of Nigeria has vowed to remain resolute despite what it described as “the unlawful invasion of its office and disruption of its legitimate activities” by the police.
National Commandant of the Corps Dickson Akoh stated this in Abuja during the corps 19th year anniversary.
“We are very optimistic that very soon we hall come out of the current challenges unperturbed, more focused and stronger to achieve on our core mandate,” Akor said.
He implored all Nigerians to pray for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari even as he cautioned those fanning the embers of secession and hate speeches.
He said the corps with thousands of youth members will always preach unity and oneness of the country, urging Nigerians to see her huge population and diversity as strength.
Akoh said the temporary setback being witnessed by the corps has not altered the process of institutionalising the organization via the instrumentality of presidential assent to the bill already passed.
