A former Administrator of Jema’a Local Government Area in Kaduna State, Yunana Barde, has urged the people, especially, youths, to shun any acts of violence before, during and after the elections and vote for credible candidates.

Barde said, “Our peaceful coexistence, irrespective of tribe or religion, is paramount. Our primary duty is to build mutual respect among ourselves.”

He said this at a maiden youth political and economic summit held at ECWA II in Kafanchan organised by the Centre for Leadership, Peace and Youth Development (CLPYD).

The Coordinator of CLPYD, Joel O. Adegboyenga, called on the electorate to obtain their PVCs and participate fully in the general elections to vote for righteous people to represent them.

Adegboyenga said when the righteous abstained from participating in politics, they paved way for the wicked to rule.

“Politicians run the government, and if we do not participate, the wrong ones will continue to rule the right people the way they want,” he said.

He also called on the politicians to fear God and bring justice to the oppressed irrespective of religion, tribe or party.

He called on the youths to shun all forms of vice, including vote selling, drugs and monetary inducement, and vote for credible persons.
