NOA Urges Nigerians to Shun Violence Ahead of Guber, Assembly Polls
The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has called on Nigerians to shun electoral violence and voter apathy that are capable of disrupting the electoral process during the March 11 governorship and state House of Assembly elections.
Mrs Theresa Nnalue, NOA Director in charge of Orientation and Behaviour Modification, gave the advice on Wednesday at a -Day Motorised Voters’ Education in Suleja, Niger State.
The campaign is titled “Say No to Violence” with the theme “Embrace Peaceful Credible Election’’.
Nnalue, who said that the campaign was to enlighten the citizens on the need for peaceful and violence free elections, urged Nigerians to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner during the March 11 poll.
“There is also need for them to vote the right person they believe he or she will cater for their needs and provide them good governance,’’ she said.
According to her, aggrieved parties should not take law into their hands and follow the right process by going to court to get back their mandate.
Nnalue also urged parents to caution their children to make peace and shun violence and trouble making while casting ballots.
According to her, peace is imperative because without peace, there will be no national development.
