“Why I have resigned my appointment as United Nations Peace Ambassador”

by Mohammed Buhari

In 2010, I was appointed a United Nation Peace Ambassador by the Interreligious and Inter Federations of World Peace (IIFWP), a division of the United Nations in recognition of my performance as a Millennium Development Goal Ambassador and a member of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) a body under the United Nations.

Ambassadors for Peace are the world’s largest and most diverse network of peace leaders. These Ambassadors are supposed to come from all works of life representing all races, religion, nationalities, and culture, and must commit to:

•       Stand on the common ground of universal moral principles, committed to promoting reconciliation, overcoming barriers, and building peace.

•       Form a Global Network representing the religious, racial, and ethnic diversity of the human family and all disciples of Human Endeavour.

•       Participate in programs that promote reconciliation and cooperation beyond traditional boundaries of religion, race, ethnicity, and nationality.

•       Promote and practice the ethic of “living for the sake of others” as the guiding principle for building world peace and a global community.

I was also expected to contribute to the fulfilment of the hope of all ages, a unified world peace wherein the spiritual and material dimensions of life are harmonized.

On receiving the appointment, I was elated with the opportunity to join hands with influential citizens of Nigeria in contributing my quota towards engineering a Nigeria rich with sustainable peace and love. From my point of view and understanding this appointment was supposed to be an avenue for engineering initiatives for establishing the peaceful co-existence of Nigerians, as Peace Ambassadors were people who were very influential in our society, therefore they could be able to make change with little effort.

Taking a Look at Nigeria today, with regards to the terrible security situation in the country and the almost non existence of peaceful co-existence of religious and ethnic groups, it is obvious that there is great need for peace initiatives to alleviate the current situation.

But unfortunately, in all the months I have spent as a Peace Ambassador, I have not witnessed any form of mobilization towards organizing any peace initiative by the body. All I have witnessed is its members taking advantage of their position to have better access to government, embezzlement of funds donated for peace initiatives and gross unethical conduct.

To the average Nigerian on the street, being a Peace Ambassador doesn’t go beyond an individually having a flashy car carrying a ‘Peace Ambassador’ inscribed plate number.  The Nigerian body of Peace Ambassadors exist today for reasons that are against its establishment as other Nations that have them are feeling their impact in their societies.

It’s so unfortunate that Nigerians seek to be appointed Peace Ambassadors today, just for the sole purpose of being referred to as one and the special plate number that is issued for their cars. The Nigerian chapter of Peace Ambassadors has evolved into an elite group that exist today for selfish reasons and not for humanistic ideals. My conscience is saddled with a heavy burden to see all the lives lost daily to terrorism and can’t seem to act against it in even in my capacity as a Peace Ambassador.

I therefore have resigned my appointment as a Peace Ambassador, as my personal principles and ideology are against in present set up. It will be a great disservice to my nation Nigeria and the world as a whole if I associate myself with a body established for the sole purpose of engineering peaceful initiatives but do not in any way represent the objectives for which it was established. We must move away from seeking titles and position in society and work for the common good of all humanity.

Mohammed Buhari is a young Nigerian who is one of Nigerians across the country nominated for the Peace project.

Some other notable Nigerians who are ambassadors for the United Nations includeFemi Anikulapo-Kuti; he  promotes the United Nations Children’s Fund Unicef. Some say the First United Nations Youth Ambassador in Nigeria is the koko-master D’banj. Others  are Timaya, show biz veteran Keke Ogungbe and 2face Idibia. There is also Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Ini Edo.

Organisations like Universal Peace Federation and the Interreligiousand Inter Federations of World Peace work hand in hand with the United Nation in selecting individuals who work as the ambassadors.

  4. Kai!! This mohammed nigger is in some serious deep shit!! I don't envy d guy…hahaha…barawo nigerian

  5. @tukaiaye,pple like Mohammed dnt change until they are caught or they face life threatening situations,oh u even knw about his kids,oh mehn!!! Mohammed!! You are on borrowed time!! Ur time would be up soon. Him and his co-conspirators!!!

  6. The bastard is from osun state.I beg,let him not die now maybe GOd can still touch his heart to pay my money.really am pained.if u want to alter word on this boy based on d pains he has caused u,am sure u will course him to death.he is an evil genius,wicked and dangerous.surely he will pay for his acts.the bible says the mercy of God knows no bound, am sure God is still giving anoda chance.donkt be suprised that mohammed himself may be d one who wrote and call himself fayemi,does d write up make sense to u guys?no one knows him will ever support him except his sindicates.whereever u are mohammed,u will not know peace except u pay all what u owe fraudulently,the spririt of the twins dat u abadoned will torment u.give ur life to Jesus,He is d only one that can save u.

  7. @Mohammedbuhari,I don't understand whether your father rears cattle in the village,prob that's why you are not proud of him,and u choose to associate urself with someone's father,tarnishing his image along the way,am waiting for Karma to fuck you up,and I pray I can witness it,I put you in my prayers everyday,at least the bible says pray for your enemies.I pray you get arrested or even die in a miserable way unless you repent and confess,that's the only way I can get closure for duping me.

  8. @tukaiaye: thank you for standing for the truth. What this man did to me is better imagined. I have forgiven him and leave him to the justice that comes from God. My only prayer is that no one falls victim to this beast. It is sad that such an animal can claim to be the son of General Muhammadu Buhari. The general needs to come out and publicly disown this bastard. Anyone who has fallen victim to mohammed buhari should openly speak about their experiences. You may save someone else from going through a similar experience.

  9. @fayemi what ahmed and farida said about this guy is absolute true.fayemi,if truely you know mohammed,then you will know that what these guys wrote about him is no blackmail.infact,all the adjectives they use to describe him are understatement.let us expose bad people so that there will be no where to hide.I pray you don't fall victim of this boy.Iam a victim and am still weeping now.beware!that's the message.he is fraudulent!

  10. @[email protected] What ever you like you say about this man but for him taking the part of honor by resigning I don't think he has done anything bad and also in his resignation letter he never said he is GMB's son so I don't understand what you bring here finally you claim he is not in that Position but I remember reading on the dailies one time his Peace committee worked with the Sheik lemu committtee on election riot violence instituted by President Jonathan and he was the chairman followed by one Funsho Elulade. So why are you saying what you don't even have an idea about.

  11. Mohammed Buhari is a fradulent human being that should never have been given such an important position. He is not only a liar but a thief. This man goes around telling lies, claiming to be what he is not. He lives a fake life. He lacks the intellect necessary for success so he goes around stealing people's ideas and words and claiming it to be his. This man is a failure in all ramifications. Nigerians beware!!!

  12. This is a fluke…Mohammed Buhari as claimed is a boy with questionable characters.He is dubious,Liar and a criminal.He at one time or the other used d platform to make money for himself by selling d peace ambbassador plate number to friends in lagos,those he mentioned in the article are those he made money out of by selling Peace Ambassador to them.He's talking of resigning simply because of the fact that he taught his expectation by joining the peace movement in terms of money making was no longer visible.Anyone that sees this young boy would think he has seen Somebody,Nigerians beware of this bastard who claims to be the son of Gen Muhammed Buhari,for ur information, HE IS NOT.

cool good eh love2 cute confused notgood numb disgusting fail
