4 She called for quick intervention of world leaders to resolve the conflict in order to stop the risen deaths and destruction of properties in those countries.

5 “As at last month, the war in Ukraine has claimed more than six thousand deaths of civilians, while the numbers of refugees had risen to over six millions,” Ajimobi said.

6 The foundation president said that economic implication of the war with the destruction, was already costing Ukraine as much as 113.5 billion dolllars.

7 Ajimobi said both nations would require nothing less than 200 billion dollars to rebuild what had been destroyed at the end of the ongoing hostilities, adding that this could be used for other developmental purposes.

8 “Back home in Nigeria, the Boko Haram crisis, banditry and kidnapping have continued, leading to avoidable losses with the attendant implications for the economy of the country.

9 “Due to banditry, the economic livelihood of the rural populace has been affected since they depend largely on farming.

10 “Most people have left the farmlands and have taken refuge in neighbouring areas believed to be safer,” she said.

11 Ajimobi said that kidnapping had led to financial losses through payment of ransom, indebtedness of families through unplanned expenses and in most cases, forceful closure of businesses and relocation.

12 The SAAF president added that the Boko Haram insurgency had equally led to the disruption of lives with many people taken refuge in IDP camps.

13 “As the world marks the International Day of Peace, I pray that we all embrace peace in order to make our society a better place.

14 “It is only in an atmosphere of peace that development and humans can thrive.

15 Let us embrace peaceful co- existence,” she said.
