The last winner didn’t qualify because he used someone’s else material, $1000 is still available for other contestants, so do your video with.#istandforpeace2019elections tagged @igodye_ . Congratulations to @[email protected],@the_kingcomedy, @mcabilitea #istandforpeace2019 I believe that today’s world is built around uncertainties because we neglect promoting peace beyond our immediate environment, resulting in loss of lives and property, which could have been managed or avoided if human resources development is given more fundamental priority.
He further charged Nigerians to be patriotic. “Let’s come together as well meaning citizens of Nigeria, embracing this responsibility as a sacrifice for patriotism. Indeed, it doesn’t matter who you are, there is nothing compared to the price of peace and keeping it. Consequently, I urge you to do a video footage of yourself and post it with the #Istandforpeace2019elections”
