Stop killings, vote, don’t fight – Fr. ‘Ebube Muonso’
AHEAD of Saturday’s Governorship and Houses of Assembly elections across the country, the Spiritual Director, Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Uke, Anambra State, Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Obimma, popularly known as Fr. Ebube Muonso, has asked youths and Nigerians at large to shun maiming and killing of innocent citizens in the name of election victory since it is not worth it.
Fr. Ebube Muonso, who spoke during the first Sunday of the Month anointing service at the Blessed Iwene Tansi Catholic Church Umudioka, Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State, frowned at the reported killing of 35 persons by the Civil Liberties Organization (CLO) in the last Presidential election across the federation and appealed to Nigerians to vote and not fight during the election on the candidates of their choice.
He warned voters not to engage in any form of electoral offenses but to ensure the processes of electing new leaders are hitch free, even as he begged Nigerians to stop showing apathy but join hands in making the election a success.
Meanwhile, Fr. Ebube Muonso had earlier said that the recent election postponement was a blessing in disguise, even as he encouraged electorates to come out en mass and peacefully vote for the candidates of their choice on Saturday, lamenting that the number of deaths in 2019 General elections which is 35 was more than the 12 deaths recorded during the 2015 elections in the country.
Rev. Fr. Obimma said: ”2019 general elections particularly this Governorship and House of Assembly elections is 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.
