Accountability Lab Nigeria says it is collaborating with stakeholders in Nasarawa State to find urgent and lasting solution to the country’s security challenges.

The Male Associate of the non-governmental organisation, Alfred Alu, said this Friday, at the group’s meeting with stakeholders in Lafia, adding that the meeting was organised to create opportunity for stakeholders to bring innovations that would restore peace in different parts of the country.

He said the organisation had engaged stakeholders in Nasarawa, Benue, Plateau, Taraba, Kaduna, Kasina and Adamawa states to help in finding solution to insecurity in the country.

According to him, the project is sponsored by the United Nations Development Programme to achieve Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals on peace, justice and strong institutions. “As part of the project, we selected 20 stakeholders from each of the states to make presentation on peace. “We just concluded the one for the state and the winner has emerged. “Winners from every state among the seven states would meet to compete for us to select the best, whose peace innovation would be adopted for implementation,” Alu said.
