Brass—Engr. Ebiegberi Richson Aboh, a former youth president of Twon Brass Kingdom in Bayelsa State has called for peaceful elections in the kingdom ahead of Saturday’s general elections.
He wished that this year’s elections in the kingdom will be like the 2019 general election which he said was the most peaceful election in the history of elections in Twon Brass kingdom.
Aboh stated this during the seminar of a one-day sensitization campaign that he hosted in Twon Brass on Saturday tagged “Be Seen Be Heard; Youth Participation for Development.”
He said, “This year’s election in Twon Brass will be peaceful, just like in the 2019 election which is adjudged the most peaceful election in the history of elections in Twon Brass.
“As youths, we will come out and vote without fighting ourselves.”
The youth leader, while re-echoing the theme of the programme, charged Twon Brass youths to participate in the election by voting for the right candidates into office which in turn he said will spawn development in the kingdom, Bayelsa State, and Nigeria.
He also advised young persons to take charge of their lives, saying the outcome of their lives is a result of their own making.
In his words: “I want to encourage us, you can be what you want to be. Nobody can determine what you’ll be, all is your own making. If you are successful today it is your own making, if you are not, it is still your own making.
“What am I saying in essence? As youths from Twon Brass, your life is in your hands, your destiny is in your hands.
“If I make it, you too can make it. And school is not a scam. I am here today because I am educated. I’m not boasting but it is the fact.
“So it is not too late. If you are here and you are not yet a student. Some leaders were old before attending school. We are still very young, we can still go to school and develop ourselves.
“I know we all have our preferred candidates for various elective positions but just wishing for our preferred candidates to win the election won’t make them win.
“How many of us here have PVCs? How many of us know our polling units? Our PVC is our power. On election day we will come out peacefully and vote for our preferred candidates without fight or violence.”
The youth leader equally thanked participants of the sensitization programme and the lawmaker representing Brass-Nembe Federal Constituency, Hon. Israel Sunny-Goli for sponsoring the programme.
