PCNI trains Judges, traditional rulers, clerics on peace building

Presidential Committee on the Northeast, PCNI has commenced a robust programme aimed at rebuilding social cohesion in partnership with key institutions, where 400 persons were trained on peace building in the three most affected states by insurgency.

The Vice Chairman of PCNI, Tijjani Tumsah, who spoke at the Workshop for training of religion leaders, traditional leaders and Lower Court Judges in Maiduguri yesterday, said 140 persons each would be trained and supported in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states respectively.

He noted that prior to the insurgency, some of the major challenges the region was grappling with, include infrastructural deficit, low human capital, ungoverned spaces, unemployment, poverty and other natural challenges such as desertification and receding Lake Chad.

“The task is therefore to leverage on the norms and values that promote peace, equity and justice to build the enabling environment for resilience,” he said.
