The Attorney general and Commissioner for Justice of Sokoto State, Sulaiman Usman, SAN has been commissioned as an international Ambassador for Peace.
The ceremony was held in Abuja on Monday, 5th September, 2022.
Mr. Usman SAN is being recognised for his outstanding role in holding and promotion of peace.
Launched in 2001, Ambassadors for Peace is the largest and most diverse network of peace leaders. As of 2020, there are more than 100,000 Ambassadors for Peace from 160 countries who come from all walks of life representing many races, religions, nationalities, and cultures, and commit to:
Stand on the common ground of universal moral principles, promoting reconciliation, overcoming barriers, and building peace.
Form a global network representing the diversity of the human family and all disciplines of endeavor.
To promote cooperation beyond boundaries of religion, race, ethnicity, and nationality.
Practice “living for the sake of others” as the guiding principle for building a global community.
The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) is a global network of individuals and organizations dedicated to building a world of peace in which everyone can live in freedom, harmony, cooperation and prosperity. Peace is not simply the absence of war or a term that applies only to the relationships among nations. Peace is an essential quality that should characterize all relationships.
UPF advocates renewal of the United Nations, including a proposal that the UN create an interreligious council within its structures. UPF implements its programs through a global network of Ambassadors for Peace.
