Valentine Ozigbo said the exercise is to create awareness on a peaceful Anambra state. In his insightful words he stated that ” We are using this to promote peace because we need peace all around us in every thing that we do. From our families, to the organizations, communities and parties we belong to in Anambra.
UnHe further stated that ” This is the starting point of it. Sowing a seed for a bigger thing to happen and by the grace of God we are succeeding. I’m happy to see over a thousand people gather, walking around the street of Onitsha to promote peace.”
Apart from promoting peace, some of the participants say such walks are indeed necessary for a healthy living.
With the vast majority of youths subscribing to the notion that is peace basic for development, the rally received overwhelming support lauding the initiative of the convener as a man who promotes peace and is a worthy embodiment of good values.This comes as no surprise as Valentine Chineto Ozigbo has a blazing track record as an advocate for peace bagging numerous awards in recognition of his notable contributions to society, most recently bagging the outstanding achievement in transformational leadership at the People of the Year Award in November 2020
