The African Vice Chancellor of the University, and the keynote speaker at the event, Prof Valentine Iheukwumere, in his lecture, titled: "The Place of Peace Building as a Panacea for Nations Development", reflects on the fundamental principles required to deliver a peaceful society for nation building and national development. He harps on the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals to drive home his points.

The Don lectures:

 "Considering the importance of the subject of discussion, this paper meant to x-ray the concept of panacea for nation's development, and peacebuilding; the paper starts with conceptual ratification of the concept. 

"A nation devoid of peace, is a country devoid of development, is like a nation that has lost its ways, that is not even knows that is broken. "Peace has always been among the community's highest values. Someone said that the most advantageous peace is better than the most just war.

"I prefer the most unjust peace to the justest war that was ever won, there was never a good war or a bad peace.

"Nations and leaders must realise that peace is a prerequisite for development as a whole. This is because it provides an enabling environment for society's progress, human capital formation, infrastructural development, matters subject to the rule of law, and so on. "In the absence of peace, education and health structures break down, system to provide infrastructure disintegrates.

"Critically, peace also fixes all resources, both financial and human that will otherwise control or create violence.

"The concept of panacea.  

*Panacea is a remedy for all diseases or ills. Panacea can be called cure ills. We can say that panacea is an answer or solution for all problems, We can say panacea is attention to all difficulties, but our attention has to be called to the nation's development with reference to all.

"It is therefore suffice to say, the place of peace building is the solution or remedy for this quality associated with a nation's development.

"The concept of nation's development. What is development? Development is a process that creates change, progress, positive change, or the addition of physical, economic, environmental, social, and demographic components. 

"The purpose of development is a rise in the quality of life of the population and employment opportunities without damaging the resources of the environment. Development is peaceful and useful not necessarily immediate, and it includes an aspect of quality change and recreation of condition or as a continuation of the change.

" Through growth and development, nations would be able to improve the standard of living of the people through the verification of poverty, hunger, diseases, and illiteracy. The provision of adequate shelter.

"In a nation's development, the government plays a vital role, especially a nation that practices real democracy.

"The empowerment of women and full participation according to the United Nations' document, is on a basis of equality in all spheres of the society is fundamental for nations's development, eradicate poverty and reduce inequality. 

"Nation's development brings about the development of policy, leadership skills, partnering abilities, and institutional capability to achieve sustainable development. 

"Nation's development brings about peace and security.

" The sustainable development of the United Nations goals are no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, industry, innovation and infrastructure, reduced inequality, sustainable cities and communities, responsible construction. and production, climate actions, sustainable development goals, life below water, peace, justice, strong institutions, and partnerships for the goals.

" Concept for peace.

"Peace is freedom from disturbance. Peace is a state of security and order within a community provided by law. Peace is a concept of societal love and harmony in the absence of hostility and violence.

"National peace can be referred to as a state of people from all states in the country being happy and living harmoniously with each other. Peace is a basis for human rights, so it is a right for whoever and wherever the citizens are in the world.

"Peace-building becomes strategic when it works over the long run and at all levels of the society to establish and sustain relationships among people locally and globally.

"We know that peace and development go hand in hand, and as a result the need for peace-building because the more peaceful a society, the more prosperous a stable, God bless you." He concluded.
