Onitiri Tasks Buhari On Peaceful, Violence-Free Polls

Chief Sunbo Onitiri, the Lagos Central Senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to conduct the coming presidential election in a peaceful environment devoid of violence.

In a press statement in Lagos Wednesday, Chief Onitiri advised the President to put the nation far above his personal ambition.

“This election should be free, fair and very credible as the whole world is watching.  He should put Nigeria first above self as we have no other country we can call our own,” Onitiri stressed.

He should strengthen our fledgling democracy and stop heating up the polity. He should be wary of greedy politicians around him who are bent on clinging to power by all means.              

Onitiri charged Buhari, “Please your ambition is not worth the blood of innocent Nigerians. Let the votes of Nigerians count.

“We fought for Nigeria’s democracy with our blood, please don’t disintegrate our country.

“I urge all patriotic Nigerians to prevail on Buhari and all politicians to play politics without bitterness and violence.

“I implore all citizens with PVC to come out and vote in February elections.  Exercise your civic duty. Please vote, protect and defend your votes. Don’t sell your votes.  Vote wisely.  Vote is  your conscience,” Onitiri added.
