Thanks a gtreat deal for that important piece of information. I am interested in the course and shall waste no time in enrolling. Well, my interest is peace education and peace building. Africa as we all know has reched a nadir and drastic steps have to be taken to save it from imminent destruction. Its all over international news that Africa and africans consciously and subconsciously fuel and tinder conflict which has been the bane of development. My candid opinion is that if conflict has to be put at bey, it has to start with the youth. So, am into bringinging to the understanding of the youths of all levels the ills of conflict and how to live with it and avoid violence. Nigeria is a place for you to visit in spite of the atrocities our people commit. There are still good people here.
