The Managing Conflict in Nigeria (MCN) Programme aimed to support Nigerians with conflict resolution, at both the state and community level. From 2017-2023, the programme focused on reducing violence, promoting stability and strengthening resilience so that Nigerians feel more safe and secure in their communities. 

This Special Edition of the MCN Newsletter highlights the Results Dissemination and Programme Closure Events that were held in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe in January 2023.

“As a result of the training and code of conduct for traditional rulers, the courts and police are referring cases to the traditional rulers, thereby decongesting the courts, enhancing speedy resolution of disputes and access to justice for the people. The European Union and British Council should introduce another peacebuilding programme if it is not possible to extend MCN.”

HRH Alh (Dr) Umar Adamu Sanda Gwanwari of Ganye, Adamawa State
