Popular stand-up comedian, Francis Agoda, known by his stage name, I Go Dye, has rewarded 5 Nigerians with the prize of $1000 each for using their platform to promote peace.
The comedian earlier called on Nigerians to lend their voice to promote peace, ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Everyone had to submit a video using the hashtag #ISTANDFORPEACE and also tag the Nigerian police and INEC and five people with very meaningful peace messages would win a thousand dollars each from his FAPOH Awards (Francis Agoda Path Of Honour) Peace Prize.
According to the comedian, the first step to guarantee progress in any Nation is by promoting peace.
Sharing the photo of the winners, Comedian I Go Dye wrote:

I believe that today’s world is built around uncertainties because we neglect promoting peace beyond our immediate environment resulting to loss of live and property, which could have been managed or avoided if human resources development is given more fundamental priority and reward those that promote peace.”
