The UN Conference is designed to provide a policy building forum for NGOs collaboration with the world body.
The United Nations (UN) has invited the Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN) to attend her 67th Department of Public Information/Non-Governmental Organization (DPI/NGO) conference scheduled for its headquarters in New York, United States.
The event is designed to provide a policy building forum for NGOs collaboration with the world body.
Addressing journalists in Abuja while leading a five-man delegation of PCN to the UN conference in New York, National Commandant of Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN), Amb. Dickson Akoh said time had come for the organization to make a statement on Nigerias democracy, using its numerical strength.
Akoh also charged members of the Corps to take advantage of the extension of the continuous voters registration (CVR) exercise and get registered, adding that any officer or volunteer of the Corps who fails to comply with the instruction would not be issued identity card during the 2019 membership revalidation.
PCN currently boasts 157,000 regular officers and about two million volunteers across the country.
