The Plateau Inter-Faith Youth Peace Debate TV Series is designed to be an interactive platform that brings together youths of the two key faiths in Plateau state namely Christianity and Islam to work together via a television debating platform to deliberate on national development issues. Sixteen (16) debating teams are participating in this exciting competition for the best team to emerge. A debating team comprises of 2 persons in a team, and each team has a Christian youth and a Muslim youth working together to debate against another team of Christian and Muslim youth in the competition. The debate is not about Christians debating against Muslims, neither is it on “which religion is better”. Rather it is about Christians and Muslims teaming together to debate about social development and good governance issues on the Plateau using peaceful co-existence as the foundation for thought at the maiden stage.
There is also be a live audience to cheer the debaters as well as participate in breakout sessions to deliberate on issues and ideas generated from the debate to contribute to peace and development in Plateau state. The strongest incentive is that the winners shall be crowned Plateau Inter-Faith Youth Peace 4 Development Ambassadors and shall both enjoy a learning visit to London for a week to further deepen their knowledge on peaceful co-existence. On their return they shall develop and jointly implement a youth peace project on the Plateau.
The Debate Airs on Tuesdays at 6pm and Saturdays 2:30pm on The Plateau Radio Television Corporation, Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria.
