In the course of serving one's Nation as an Ambassador of Peace, some five Scout Leaders lost their lives during the 2011 Christmas Day bombing within Nigeria.
In the same course of fulfilling our Scout Promise of Doing duties to God and One's Country and part of our Scout Laws that support being useful and to help others, Five of our Scout Leaders lost their lives in 2011 Christmas Day bombing within Nigeria.
In 2012 and 2013, not considering our bad experience in 2011, The Scout Association of Nigeria established as part of Messengers of Peace Programs two SAN Health Clinics one in Maiduguri Borno State and the other at Lafia in Nasarawa State. The Goals of these programs would be to see to the welfare of our Citizenry.
While we continue to support Peace and Unity of our Nation Nigeria, l want to use this opportunity to appeal to Nigeria Citizens not to make any harm on any members of the Scout Association of Nigeria or any other Voluntary Organization in Nigeria. We are out to assist and not to be part of the victims. We should all pray for the Peace and Unity of Nigeria and in doing this we shall all prosper....
.From the Chief Commissioner of the Scout Association of Nigeria.
