The National Unity and Peace Corps is a body that promotes peace, harmony and progress in the affairs of the nation Nigeria. They play a mediatory role between the government and the people. They have a peculiar uniform with symbols that signify values they hold dear. We will examine them shortly.
This organization was founded by Professor Humphrey Ogoegbunam in 1988, but the corps was approved in 1992. Their uniform has remained almost the same since it was approved by the Federal Ministry of Internal Affairs.
