” The inaugural event takes place at Nigeria Union of Journalists Press Centre on Wednesday October 10, 2022., by 10am.  Members of Journalists for Peace will from now on undertake to promote positive approaches to conflict and communal clashes rather than merely reporting same.

”  In collaboration with others, members of JFP will also play the role of major stakeholders in negotiation and mediation efforts and processes. This is because they are centrally place between government and the public and can play an important role in conflict resolution.
