The youth who were drawn from all the 16 local government areas promised to take the campaign to their localities to ensure a peaceful poll. Raji disclosed that between 60 and 70 percent of those involved in violence during elections are youths whom he said are induced with money by desperate politicians in a bid to win at all cost.

He said;

“Ekiti is a volatile state, the news being heard outside is that you cannot enter Ekiti.

But the perception must change. It has moved from rigging or snatching of elect0ral materials to vote buying and vote selling. Before, when an election is disrupted, it will be cancelled but that no longer obtains.

NIGAWD Executive Director, Abimbola Aladejare, disclosed that the Vote Not Fight campaign will take the message of peace to political actors, media organizations, transport workers, traditional rulers, religious leaders and other stakeholders.
