Innocent Idibia, better known as 2baba has urged political parties and candidates to maintain peace and order as the Anambra governorship election draws closer.
The award winning singer, who kicked off a peace campaign in the state, on Thursday inaugurated the “Vote Not Fight, Election No Be War” campaign.
He told journalists in Awka that there is the need for all to work together to prevent needless loss of lives before, during and after the election.
“Since 2015, I and the partner organisations on the Vote Not Fight campaign have worked tirelessly to increase youth participation in our country’s election,” he said.
“I call on youth of Anambra to ensure that they go out and vote for the candidates of their choice.
“The legitimacy of government is dependent on peaceful, free, fair and credible elections.”
According to him, even if Biafra is granted today, peace will still be required for elections to hold.
“We have to go out, show maturity and vote responsibly,” he said. “We have to monitor and engage our leaders. I encourage our youths to join political parties of their choice and grow to help make informed decisions.”
The campaign is a collaboration between the 2Face Idibia Foundation, Youngstars Development Initiative, YDI, and Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement, YIAGA.
