Chief Imam of Uyo Central Mosque, Alhaji Mohammed Adamu, has called on politicians to canvass for votes from the electorate based on what they can do to impact lives, instead of character assassination, mudslinging and falsehood.

Speaking with journalists after the Eid-el-Kabir prayers yesterday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, he appealed to politicians to always play according to the rules.

“We use this opportunity to call on our leaders, especially politicians, to play by the rules.

They are the ones beating the drums of war and using the downtrodden to cause trouble in the country.

“Let them play politics by presenting their manifestoes to the electorate and convince them on what they will do if voted to power,” he said.

He charged the electorate not to employ violence to select their leaders; but use their voting rights, as only those who have them in mind would govern well.

The cleric prayed God to have mercy on the country and bring peace to the communities experiencing crises.
