The Cross River State Civil Society Network has endorsed the Vote Not Fight, Election No Be War Campaign.

The Convener of the network, Leader Ben Usang committed to supporting the campaign when the Vote Not Fight, Election No Be War Campaign State Technical Committee paid him an advocacy visit on Saturday at his office – No. 4 Effiom Usang street Ikot Ansa, Calabar Municipality.

Leader Usang while taking his guests down memory lane on the importance of a peaceful election in a democracy stated that a lot of work has to be done on the consciousness of Nigerians toward pre and post-election conduct. He emphasized that the role of the National Orientation Agency (NOA) is vital in the reorientation process and needs to be supported.

He said his doors are open to partnerships in ensuring the 2023 election and beyond is peaceful “which will lead to positive turnout,” he said adding that, “we as a network are passionate about peace and election because of the important role they play in a democratic society.”

Leader Usang reiterated that youths participation is key to achieving a free, fair, and credible election, violence must be eschewed, and peace made the order of the day.

Earlier, the Team Lead of the Vote Not Fight, Election No Be War campaign, Mr. Lawrence Peter described the State Civil Society Network as a key stakeholder if success must be achieved in ensuring elections are peaceful as possible.

Mr. Peter maintained that no amount of money or pleasure should allow one to be used to disrupt elections which in turn is destroying our society. He said: “Your life is not worth losing, protect it.”

The Team Lead of the Vote Not Fight, Election No Be War campaign urged all to “conduct yourself peacefully on the day of the election and after.”

Other members of the State Technical Committee Pastor Mercy Igboke, Mayen Bassey, and Ukeme-Obong Albert thanked the network for receiving them with open hands.
