The Plateau Intrafaith 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. Thirty Two (32) debating teams participated in this exciting competition for the best team to emerge.
A debating team comprised 2 persons in a team; 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.
The strongest incentive is that the winners were crowned Plateau Intra-Faith Youth Peace Ambassadors and both enjoyed a one week learning visit to Ghana to further deepen their knowledge on peaceful co-existence.
This project is a collaborative initiative between Youngstars Foundation and PRTVC with support from The British High Commission. Powered by Impact Youth Christian Center Abuja, Power City Intl Church Jos, JCMI Jos, Kingdom Citizen Pavilion Jos, COCIN Church
