The Spiritual Director, Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Uke, Dunukofia Local Government Area, Anambra State, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Obimma, has called on youths and Nigerians at large to shun maiming and killing of innocent lives under the guise of politics.

He made the call during the first anointing service at Blessed Iwene Tansi Catholic Church Umudioka, saying that the maiming of lives for the sake of power is not worth it. 

The Rev Fr. fondly referred to as Ebube Muonso condemned the reported killing of 35 persons during the February 23 presidential election across the federation.

He also condemned the reported killings in Kaduna State and urged government to intervene and stop the wanton waste of human lives across the nation.

He said: “Voters should avoid engaging in any form of electoral offences but ensure the processes of electing new leaders are hitch free.

“I appeal to Nigerians to stop showing apathy but join hands in making the election a success. Vote and not fight during the election and vote for the candidate of your choice.

“2019 general elections particularly the Governorship and House of Assembly elections should be taken as a brotherly contest and not a war.

“We should use our votes and not guns because this isn’t war. Don’t be an object of violence but embrace orderliness and peace.”

Fr. Obinma urged aspirants to engage in issue based campaigns rather than campaign of calumny or religious, tribal and ethnic incitements that is capable of causing disunity.

While calling on voters to come out en masse to vote candidate of their choice on Saturday, the Catholic Priest appealed to traditional rulers, market leaders and political party leaders to ensure they don’t fan the embers of political crisis by encouraging youths to kill, maim and burn electoral materials for their selfish gains.
