Igala Cultural and Development Association (ICDA) has appealed to voters in Igala land to turn out en mass with their permanent voters’ cards (PVCs) and vote for candidates that would change the fortunes of Kogi East senatorial district and the country.
In a statement signed by the Chairman, ICDA Caretaker Committee, Surgeon Commodore Ahmed Abdulai (rtd) on Wednesday, the socio-cultural organization appealed to voters to shun violent acts that would truncate the unity of Igala race.
Abdulai, while lamenting that past elections in the Eastern axis of Kogi state had been greeted with violence, destruction of properties, appealed to voters in his region to conduct themselves in peaceful manner.
He said it is important for the right persons to be elected as the country is facing a turbulent period.
“Vote wisely for the candidates of your choice taking into consideration the campaign promises in the manifestos and above all the candidate’s character. Avoid anything that will vitiate or render your votes invalid.
“Avoid violence throughout the duration and after the electoral processes because it will not serve anyone useful purposes. May Igala Kingdom prosper under the reign of His Royal Majesty Ata Igala Dr Mathew Alaji Opaluwa Oguche Akpa II,” he stated.
