For almost a decade, Nigeria has been facing serious peace and security challenges. The different ethnic nationalities have wedged one form of violent confrontation or the other against the federal government. Peace has been elusive. Beginning with the Niger-Delta militancy in the South-South to the on-going Boko Haram insurgency in the North East all bothered on agitations of marginalisation and unjust distribution of resources among the ethnic groups. This paper is a qualitative study carried out in Calabar Municipality of Cross River State of Nigeria. The sample involved 77 social educators purposively selected the University of Calabar, Cross River State College of Education and some selected secondary schools in the study area. Three research questions were posed and the respondents' responses formed the primary data for the study. The study was supported by the descriptive and analytical methods. From the responses, it was revealed that social educators by working in partnership with other groups, organising of public enlightenment and the teaching of core values can promote a culture of peace in the society.
