Chairman of the National Coordinating Council of the Oodua Peopleâ€™s Congress, OPC, in Apapa-Iganmu Local Council Development Area, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, Prince Adedeji-Aladesawe, has advised members of the congress to shun all forms of political and electoral violence during the forthcoming general elections.
Aladesawe made this call at the 2011 National Coordinating Council Meeting of the congress held by the chapter.
“As preparations toward the general elections gather steam, no member of the congress should be involved in any political thuggery,” he stated.
He noted that 2011 general elections will go but OPC will remain forever and any member found guilty of committing any dastardly act will face the wrath of the law.
He stressed that Nigeriaâ€™s dream of becoming a vibrant democracy can only be realised when true democrats rise up to the task of rebuilding the polity.
â€œIf we want elections devoid of rancour, we should all make our vote to count,â€ he added.
He enjoined members to come out en masse and vote for the party of their choice.
