I was part of the creme de la creme of the Kaduna political society that hit the streets today to campaign for peaceful elections in Kaduna State and Nigeria. Led by the inimitable Governor Nasir El-Rufai, the colourful march caught the attention of the Kaduna populace and deepened their understanding of the link between peaceful polls, good governance and development.

Top government officials, leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), party supporters, enthusiasts and sympathisers participated in the walk. Members of the public fed their eyes to the full, while photographers had a field day. At the end participants were fully reenergised physically and mentally.

I urge citizens of Kaduna State and in particular the good people of Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone to conduct themselves peacefully on Saturday, 23rd February 2019. Your vote is your power. Approach your polling unit peacefully and go through the normal processes. Don’t lend yourself to be used for any conduct that may undermine our ability to deliver resounding victory on Saturday. Refuse to be provoked. By God’s grace, victory is assured.
