Group tells Taraba electorate to shun violence, vote wisely
Tarabans, especially the voters, have been urged to avoid violence before, during and after the general elections.
Making the call, yesterday, Founder of ‘I Have a Conscience Foundation’, Asher Adewumi, stressed the need for Nigerians to eschew acts capable of disrupting the election.
According to Adewumi, electoral violence will only lead to anarchy and disunity; hence, he urged eligible voters to come out during the election days to vote according to their conscience.
Affirming the foundation’s to reawaken people’s consciousness towards good behavior, he warned voters to eschew violence in the coming election, which he described as a litmus test for Nigeria’s unity.
Adewumi said: “We cannot be crying for peace when we are not ambassadors of peace.”
The exercise, which took place in Jalingo, brought together various organisations, including the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Rotary Club and civil societies groups.
Participants at the launch vowed to tread extra legitimate miles in speaking to the conscience of eligible voters on the need to vote according to their conscience in the polls.
