Yola – Ms Grace Atim, a Senior Research Fellow with Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR), have lauded the commitment of women in Adamawa to peace process following the return of normalcy after insurgency in the state.
She made the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Yola on the sidelines of peace training.
Atim fielded questions as a resource person for the just concluded training on peace building for stakeholders in Adamawa organised by the IPCR in collaboration with UNHCR and Adamawa Government.
According to her, the participation of women in the peace project is impressive.
“The participation of women is high; when I engage them I realised that they are eager to be involved in the peace building process as enshrined in United Nations Convention,” Atim said.
She said 23 women were among the 50 Peace Volunteers so far selected after the three weeks peace building training in the three senatorial zones of the state.
The official said the women would act as mediators and change agents in their respective communities, among others.
Commenting on the training, a female trainee, Ms Maryam Abubakar of National Council for Women Society (NCWS), expressed satisfaction with women participation in peace building.
She promised that they were fully committed to the peace project. (NAN)
