Elections are an important mechanism in democratic and peace processes. Their purpose is to provide citizens with an opportunity to freely choose their political leaders and allocate power peacefully.
Free, fair and peaceful elections is not hinged on just one person or a political party working to ensure peace but on a group of individuals and all the stake-holding mass with one goal of working to ensure a peaceful process before, during and after the elections.
I want to use this time out to appreciate the great efforts of Navy Commodore Godwin Obaje, Hon Abubakar Sadiq Ainoko, Hon David Zach, Mr Freedom Achimugu, the community leader and the entire members of Ejule Forum, nationwide for restoring peace in our community despite the postponement of the election.
I must confess that I am overwhelmed with the whole scenario and I pray it continues this way and God Almighty to give you more grace to do more for the recapture of our lost.
