As part of this year’s global celebration of peace, with the theme: ‘Rights of People to Peace’, which is observed annually on September 21 as an International Day of Peace, the First Lady and President of African First Ladies Peace Mission, Dame Patience Jonathan, has called for concerted efforts on peace.

In a press statement made available to journalists yesterday, and signed by the media adviser to the First Lady, Omoba Kenneth Aigbegbele, Mrs. Jonathan enjoined African leaders to imbibe the African spirit of conflict resolution, dialogue and peace building mechanisms so as to bring an enduring development to the continent.

 She alluded to the fact that, Africa devoid of violence, terrorism and war would have been the most developed continent in the global arena due to its abundant natural resources.

She charged other African First Ladies to support their spouses in changing the fortunes of Africa by being change agents of transformational development and good governance, which will ultimately lead to the stoppage of incessant violence that pervades the African region.
