He appealed to youths to resist those preaching violence.

Gov. Mai Mala-Buni of Yobe State and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker Committee, has appealed to youths in Edo State to avoid violence and support the conduct of a peaceful election during the Sept. 19 Governorship poll in the state.

Buni made the appeal on Thursday in a statement signed by Mr Mamman Mohammed, his Director-General, Press and Media Affairs in Damaturu.

He said that APC had also directed its supporters to shun violence and any activity that contravenes the provisions of the electoral law.

“I urge APC supporters including those from the opposition parties to support the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct fair, credible and acceptable election.

“The people of Edo should be allowed to elect a leader of their choice and, the people’s wish should be respected.

“We are optimistic that the security agencies would check the excesses of troublemakers, protect the electorate and their votes,” Buni said.

He also appealed to youths to resist those preaching violence.

“Your future lies in a peaceful election and purposeful leadership. The advocates of violence do not wish you good and have no programmes for your future.

“You should, therefore, distance yourselves from them,” Buni added.
