2face also revealed the value of prize: N1million would be presented to each winner, along with opportunities to attend key global peace summits and exchange programmes in 2014.

He said that almost a quarter of the world lived in areas affected by military or civil conflicts.

However, 2face noted that there were young people who were busy building bridges across communities.

“These young people are mostly unnoticed but you will find them working hard in various places, educating people and helping to manage conflicts and promoting peace.

“They have become community leaders in peace building, reconciliation and post -conflict reconstruction, thereby establishing themselves as the next generation of leaders.

“As we march towards Nigeria’s centenary celebrations in 2014, more than anything else, we choose to celebrate these young unsung heroes, who are active in their communities, promoting peace.

“We want to celebrate them through the ‘2face Peace Awards”, Idibia concluded.
