Plateau State Roadmap To Peace Download
  • There is absolutely no complacency when it comes to Peace and we believe strongly that it is within our power to achieve the promise of sustainable Peace on the Plateau.

    Simon Bako Lalong

  • Everyday i pray that the heavens will inspire the people of plateau state to live in peace with each other, by accepting our shared humanity and working daily to defend it

    HRM Da Jacob Gyang Buba

  • if not for anything, i want to at the least, be remembered as a man who worked for Peace

    Simon Bako Lalong

  • Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.

    John F. Kennedy

  • Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.

    Albert Einstein

  • Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

    Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

    Robert F. Kennedy South Africa, 1966

  • Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are.

    Hafsat Abiola

  • If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.

    Nelson Mandela

  • Violence is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends up defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers.

    Martin Luther King

  • To replace the old paradigm of war with a new paradigm of waging peace, we must be pioneers who can push the boundaries of human understanding. We must be doctors who can cure the virus of violence. We must be soldiers of peace who can do more than preach to the choir. And we must be artists who will make the world our masterpiece.
