There is a strong positive correlation between national cohesion, peacebuilding, and
development. However, the task of unifying the various
groups in Nigeria has remained a daunting challenge for every government in Nigeria.
In recognition of the importance of national cohesion in peacebuilding, the Centre for
Democracy and Development, under its Strengthening the Delivery of Peace and Security
(SDPS) Project funded by the UK AID project, implemented peace and social cohesion
messaging on radio and television stations nationwide in English and Pidgin.
