Mr. Abubakar Ohere, the APC Senatorial Candidate for Kogi Central, has advised youths to vote and not fight during the 2023 electioneering campaigns.
“As future leaders of this country, you must eschew violence and embrace peaceful and harmonious coexistence.
“Moreso, as an astute politician and peace loving and patriotic Nigerian, my campaign for the central senatorial seat will be issue-based and nothing more.

“Over the years, student activists are known to sharpen the society for better through constructive engagements and related activities, and this you are doing and very commendably.
“The title ‘Vote not fight’ is coming at the right time, and there’s a need for our youths to be change agents by propagating this concept in the entirety of Ebiraland and Kogi in general.
“I always have great respect for the youths as such so fascinated when you people gather in productive engagements like this symposium.
“This explains reasons why I single handedly sponsored 100 tickets for young people to attend the recent ‘TEDx Okene.’
“Over the years now, we have enjoyed peace in Ebiraland under the leadership of Gov. Yahaya Bello, which is a sharp departure from the evil days of crisis moving across the land.
“It was sad that youths were mostly used to prosecute that needless violence, therefore you must refused to be used to perpetuate violence because violence will always leave at its trail destruction and death.
“This warning should be taken with all seriousness as our campaigns will be issue based, and engage wittingly to show verifiable achievements that has been made by me, the right choice for the senatorial seat.
“It’s my hope that arising from this meeting, you will all be the agents of change that the society deserves and take up a responsibility of reporting any person or persons planning or perpetuating violence as the general elections draw nearer.
“‘Vote not fight’ concept is what is desired of all of us to propagate as we go out of this hall to the streets, market places, malls and parks,” he charged.
