About Us

After 12years of working in the UN and shuttling between tough terrains, mediating crises, resolving conflicts as well as preaching the gospel of global peace, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, CFR decided to return to Nigeria to use his expertise and experience to help address the enormous developmental challenges that Nigeria, ECOWAS and Africa are grappling with. He established Savannah Centre to focus on the nexus between peace, democracy and development. Often times, most ‘think tanks’ are established to deal with one or two of the above three thematic issues. Savannah Centre was established on the underlying principle that peace, development and democracy are inextricably linked. Gambari was inspired by two UN Secretaries-General, both Africans – Boutros Boutros- Ghali and Kofi Annan. They both wrote seminal reports that dealt with peace, development and democracy in the world.

The Nigerian state has entered yet another election cycle in our journey of democracy.
As we approach the general elections of 2019, the country has begun to see activities
consistent with democratic norms yet full of aberrations that threatens democracy itself
and our collective aspiration for a stable and progressive nation. If the path of
development through democracy is to be followed diligently, recent events in the polity
portend danger we must avert. We in Savannah Centre have therefore deemed it
necessary to express the need for caution in our national polity. Key players must
exercise extreme sense of decorum and patriotism during this period by avoiding
incendiary comments and engaging in activities that can cause derailment of the
democratic process as we move towards the 2019 general elections.
