Kenneth Okonkwo announces date for ‘Youth of Peace’ March in Abuja



Nollywood actor Kenneth Okonkwo who has been an advocate for peace, announced on his Instagram page today that the “Youth of Nigeria” has chosen to march for peace in Nigeria on the 23rd of September, in Abuja.

He shared the photo above and captioned it:

As an Ambassador for peace, it’s pleasant to know that youths of Nigeria have decided to live together in peace. Beside me is Mohammed A. Mohammed, a signatory to the quit notice, who has embraced peace. Beside him is Tunde Sotala, representing Yoruba Youth Congress. At the extreme left is Riky Nwajiofor, representing National Youth Council of Nigeria. At the extreme right is Innocent Okoh also from National Youth Council. We were having last minute meeting on the 23rd in my chambers which contributed to the declaration of the withdrawal notice on the 24th of August.

To God be the glory

He added:

Yes, I preach peace. I am honoured to announce that the entire youths of Nigeria have decided to march in Abuja for peace on the 23rd of September, 2017, titled “Yopeace” (youths of peace).

Join the march for a peaceful Nigeria if you are a Yopeace.

    Not enough to paint peace on the surface, the cause should be addressed and that is in the roundtable called restructure,renegotiation or whatever your term it.

    No country can be peaceful without equity,fairness,justice etc. Soliciting for peace without the above mentioned principles will amount to nothing. Let’s tell ourselves the truth, Nigeria needs either to be negotiated to determine if we still needs to be together; if yes then restructure will follow or if otherwise then referendum. Am against forcing people to be together in an unhappy relationship
