The postponement of the 2020 June event was confirmed in the early hours of Saturday via a Special Announcement Statement, signed by the National Public Relations Officer of Messengers of Peace, the organizers of National Peace Awards.

According to the Statement by Agility Onwurah, the National PRO of Messengers of Peace Foundation, he noted that the postponement was premised on few national and international circumstances, which includes the recent Covid19 pandemic saga. He however called on all its members and Awardees to bear with the organization, as a new date will be announced soon.

He further stated that the Messengers of Peace Foundation will be holding a management meeting soon, so as to initiate prospective plans and directions for organizational operations amidst the Covid19 pandemic which has shaped the entire political, social and economic environment in Nigeria and across the globe.
