Oboh fights against violence during elections

Former British and Commonwealth light-heavy weight champion, Peter Oboh has urged Christians and Muslims to pray for a violence-free and credible Governorship and House of Assembly elections  today.

He also called on voters to come out en masse to exercise their civic responsibilities by voting for the  candidate of their choice.

In a signed message yesterday, Oboh said, ‘’whenever you decide not to exercise your civic responsibility by not voting during election, automatically you are counting yourself among the minority. But when you decide to exercise your  right to vote, then you are not far from the winning party.

“Nigerians who are eligible to vote should come out  today  to exercise their civic responsibilities. I also want to urge Nigerians not to take advantage of today’s elections  to  cause  havoc to rival candidates and their supporters. No election is worth the blood of any Nigerian because when it happens the essence of democracy is being defeated, “Oboh said.
