The Chairman of Gudu Amalgamated Traders’ Association (GATA), Chief Bond Nnamani has bagged the Ambassador of Peace award by the Universal Peace Federation.
Presenting the award, the Nigeria Secretary General of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), Dr. Raphael Okor said the choice of Chief Nnamani was in recognition of his peace initiatives at the market.
Okor said the organisation, which is committed to building bridges of peace across all religious and ethnic groups settled for the Gudu Market chairman as another way to encouraging him for more good works.
The secretary explained that the ideal of peace is at the core of all religious, through dialogue and mutual understanding, “peace among groups is a necessary prerequisite for peace.”
He believe that if peace is being embraced by all there would be more rapid development across all levels.
It could be recalled that Gudu Market for some years back was facing internal crisis before the emergency of the Bond Nnamani as the chairman.
With the election of Nnamani as the leader over seven months ago peace has returned into the Market.
Responding, Chief Nnamani dedicated the award to all the traders at the market even as he assured them of his readiness to promote more peace.
The chairman also urged the FCT Minister to make additional provision for more infrastructure and shops, saying the available 600 shops were not enough for the traders.
