Decorated Nigerian singer, Innocent Idibia, better known as ‘2Face’, has called on the youths in Anambra State to eschew violence and embrace peace ahead of the November 6 governorship poll in the state.
Recall there has been a slew of attacks in Anambra State with most of the attacks being targeted at politicians and the leaders.
According to 2 Face, the youths need to know they are the critical stakeholders who form the backbone of the society so if the youth fail to abide by the law, the whole society would also fail.

2Face made his submission through the “Vote Not to Fight” campaign put together by the Catch Them Young Community Initiative (CATYCOI), in partnership with the 2Face Idibia Foundation.
He said: “We are here to dialogue with Anambra youths and campaign for peace, especially, as we prepare for the election.
“Our youths are critical stakeholders; this is why politicians use them to cause violence. I want to tell you that violence has no gain but destroys lives and property.
“As youths, we need to promote peace, because without peace; the election cannot be free, fair and credible, and development too, cannot take place.
“Let us be aware that election is not war but a time for us to participate by voting wisely for the candidate that can help secure our future,” he added.
