The Board of the Centre for African Peace and Conflict Resolution (CAPCR) at the California State University, Sacramento, United States of America, will this weekend confer the 2018 Peace Humanitarian Award on one of Nigeria’s legal icons, Malam Yusuf Olaolu Ali (SAN).

The award would be presented at the end of the institute’s 27th Annual Africa/Diaspora conference themed “African Peace and Security Architecture,” which will hold at the Ballroom of the University Union.

According to a letter signed by the institute’s Director, Prof Ernest E. Uwazie, the award is in recognition of Ali’s distinguished contributions of his talent, time and treasure in promoting peaceable communities in Nigeria.

Past recipients of the Peace Award in the last 27 years include Georgina Theodora Wood, the first woman Chief Justice of Ghana; Archbishop Desmond Tutu; and Prof Isaac Albert of the University of Ibadan.
