Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Civil Society Organization (CSO) under the auspices of Jesz Development Foundation, has warned political parties to stay away from any form of attacks on one another in the interest of peace and progress of the nation.
This is just as the CSO urged security agencies to deal decisively with perpetrators and sponsors of such acts.
This contained in a statement signed and made available to newsmen in Kaduna by the North West lead partner of the organization, Mrs. Zigwai Ayuba.
In the statement, Mrs Ayuba reminded the political parties of a peace accord signed recently under the National Peace Committee for peaceful campaigns towards the 2023 general elections.
She further said that every political party in the country has a right to campaign in any location of its choice without causing or inciting violence.
The statement however, noted that its Slogan, “Vote Not Fight’ strongly condemns reports of an attack on a political party at Ranchers Bees stadium Kaduna which disrupted presidential campaigns instead of promoting peace conduct of the campaign.
The organization further sympathized with all those affected by the recent flood disaster in the North West region of Nigeria and other parts of the country.
It calls on various state Emergency Management Agencies and also NEMA to do more at ensuring that the affected people find some relief.
