CEPEJ set for fifth quiz, essay competitions for schools in Warri

By Ruth Oromoni

The Center for Peace and Environmental Justice, CEPEJ, an NGO and a not-for-profit organization, is set to host the 5th edition of its Annual Peace and Unity Quiz and Essay Competitions also known as Sheriff Mulade Peace and Unity Quiz and Essay Competitions for Rural and Riverine Communities in Delta State.

The event is slated for Wednesday March, 2021.

The primary aim and objective of the contests are to promote western education among the children and youths of the riverine areas of Warri and its environs.

The initiative, introduced by Chief (Comrade) Sheriff Mulade, the Ibe-Sorimonwei (Kingdom Promoter) of Gbaramatu Kingdom in Warri South West LGA of Delta State, is to promote peaceful coexistence among the ethnic groups of the area, especially the riverine and rural communities.

While chatting with newsmen in Asaba, the state capital, Chief Mulade who is also the CEO of Center for Peace and Environmental Justice, an NGO with Offices across Nigeria and beyond, said the annual competition was his personal commitment to the advancement of education by promoting the reading culture so that the children and youths could be well equipped to become better citizens or leaders tomorrow, as well as to foster peace and unity among the diverse ethnic groups of Ijaw, Itsekiri and Urhobo in Warri South, Warri North and Warri South West LGAs of Delta State.

While enumerating the positive impacts and gains of the competition so far, he appealed to the government at all levels to join hands with civil society organizations such as CEPEJ to expand the programme to other Local Government Areas in the State.

The 2021 edition of the competition will hold at Hussey College, Warri in the Junior and Senior categories across all participating schools with cash awards and consolation prizes.
