In what can only be described as a remarkable feat, three students of the University of Abuja have been selected to represent Nigeria at The Grand Prize for Peace in Africa project in Kigali, Rwanda. The event, which is organized by the Pan-African organization for peace and conflict resolution, in conjunction with the University of Abuja, aims to promote peace and conflict resolution across the African continent.

The Coordinator of PAN-AFRICAN organization for peace and conflicts resolution, Dr Abdullahi, also gave a heart-warming welcome address, where he spoke about his love for Africa and his commitment to using his education and resources to develop the continent.
The ceremony also witnessed the presentation of the certificate of recognition to the University of Abuja Vice Chancellor, which was followed by the issuance of certificates of participation, medals, and official inauguration of the participants. Mr. Prince Ezeabata Chibuzor, on behalf of his fellow participants, presented a brief speech of appreciation to the entire organization, the University of Abuja, and all those present at the event.
