President Goodluck Jonathan and Presidential Candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC), Mohammadu Buhari have been urged to educate their supporters across the country on the need to uphold the recent Peace Accord they signed for a violence free 2015 general elections.
 
The Chairman, Society of Nigerian Artists, Plateau State, Mr Ezekiel Udubrae made the call yesterday in Jos during an Art exhibition tagged "Peaceful 2015 Election" in collaboration with Voices of Peace Nigeria held at the National Museum Jos.
 
He said the programme was geared towards creating awareness among Nigerians on the need to support a free, fair and credible election devoid of violence come March 28 and April 11.

Mr Udubrae added that Nigeria had witness a major setback as a result of violence and terrorism and said that Nigerians must join hands together and sustain the existing peace the country is currently enjoying.
 
According to him, "we want President Goodluck Jonathan the Presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, candidate of All Progressive congress (APC) to talk to their followers on the need to live together and conduct the election peaceful.
 
"The peace accord signify that the leaders want peace and they must both educate their supporters to conduct themselves in an orderly manner to enable the country have a peaceful election because when there is crisis, the economy of the country suffer great lost and we must joint our hands collectively to give peace a chance for the development and progress of our country"
 
However, Coordinator of Voices of Peace Nigeria, Barrister Ahmadu Ibrahim said peaceful 2015 election is possible if all Nigerians admit the important role of peace in the present political dispensation.
 
He noted that "without peace there will be no stable atmosphere for political activities, religious or traditional lives in the society. We must make sure that every citizen adopts the bond of peace, either as a party faithful or non political actor."
