Commandant General of the National Unity and Peace Corps, Dr. Chinedu Nneji, has assured government at all levels that his agency will cooperate with government at all levels.
Nneji stated this yesterday in Abuja, in a new year message which he personally signed.
He further assured president Muhammadu Buhari, that the organisation under his watch will work with all other sister agencies to bring about peace in the country.

He urged Nigerians to continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari led government in his quest to bring about the desired change in the country.
“I urge you to support the current administration in its effort to ensure lasting peace. Also, Peace Corps under my leadership will continue to maintain its mandate of mediating and dialogue in communities where there is crisis with the view of ensuring that the people embraces peace, unity and love as people created by one God.”
The CG revealed that he has visited the ECOWAS, AU, EU and other arms of the United Nations that deal with peace to sought for their co-operation and synergy in ensuring a lasting peace in all parts of the country in concluding the issue of Boko Haram and the herdsmen and famers.
He urged Nigerians to nurture up a new generation of Nigerians who will be accommodating, tolerant and pacific towards religions and social issues pointing out that the people should highlight the need for peaceful co-existence irrespective of tribe, religion or culture.
“It is on record that NUPEC has never had any dispute or disagreement between other security agencies as our strategy is always to improve harmonious work relationship between us sister agencies.”
