Senator Aliyu Wamakko has appealed to the electorate to act peacefully as they troop to the polling units to vote in Saturday’s governorship and state assembly elections.
Mr Wamakko, who represents Sokoto North in the senate, in a message to residents of the state, said that peace is the prerequisite of any meaningful development.
“Ourtopmost priority should be the sustenance of peace, unity and the spirit of good neighbourliness,” the former governor of Sokoto State said.
Mr Wamakko said violence would not do anybody any good, as it is destructive and retrogressive.
He said: “Nobody should perpetrate violence in the name of politics; hence we should all uphold the sanctity of human life.
“So, we should all go out peacefully on Saturday and cast our votes for our preferred candidates.”
