The United Nations Nigeria says building tolerance, and reducing marginalization and vulnerability of people impacted by conflict would help ensure peace in the country.

Kimairis Toogood, Peace and Development Advisor, Office of the Resident Coordinator, United Nations Nigeria, stated this in Abuja yesterday during a walk organised by the World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) to commemorate this year’s International Peace Day themed ‘End Racism. Build peace.’

She said there is a link between instability in the country and access to food, adequate and safe healthcare systems.

She added that UNICEF, WHO and other UN agencies have been working tirelessly in collaboration with the federal government to address the issue, by reducing the vulnerability that conflict produces in people and improving access to healthcare and food for people at more risk.

Bemsen Ugo, Protection Associate, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), says peace means when stateless people, people in an asylum, and internally displaced persons and refugees among others live in peace without bias, and prejudice in every society.

He said racism has been one of the things that have engendered dichotomy amongst people.
