We are pleased to introduce to you Peace and Conflict Resolution Resource Centre (PEACrEc).
The Peace and Conflict Resolution Resource Centre (PEACrEc), promoters of the Military, Police and Paramilitary Public Relations Officers Forum (MILPOPPROF) is a non-profit, non-political body of professional information managers birthed 12 years ago in Lagos owing to the need for a coordinated approach to Military-Civil relations, especially in using Public Relations and effective public information management as tools for national security discuss.
The objectives of PEACrEc include but are not limited to the promotion of peaceful co-existence amongst relevant stakeholders (with a focus on security and response agencies) using the instrumentality of public relations. These stakeholders are:
Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Air force, Nigerian Police Force, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Nigeria Immigration Service, Nigeria Customs Service, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Nigerian Prisons Service, Federal and State Fire Services as well as other emergency and response agencies. like National Emergency Management Agency(NEMA), Nigeria Maritime Safety Administration(NIMASA) and Nigerian Civil Aviation Agency(NCAA).
Today, PEACrEc through MILPOPPROF has been active with the participation of public relations representatives drawn from all security agencies in Nigeria. This forum has organised several seminars which dates far back as 2008 aimed at capacity building and effective synergy among our stakeholders, schools and corporate organisations. However, the Centre’s Board of Trustees decided that all states of the federation should get a chapter of MILPOPPROF. Accordingly, The centre organised an annual programme tagged #WAFCON (West African Conference on Security Communication and Public Information Management) aimed at entrenching its objectives across the West African sub-region; the programme got endorsements of The Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS),
The International Public Relations Association (IPRA), African Public Relations Association (APRA) and Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR). PEACrEc got accepted into the United Nation DESA Civil Society in January 2018, where proposals and inputs are provided by experts/stakeholders from different civil societies.
