Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni has warned political parties in the State against violence and hate speeches during campaigns for the 2023 general elections.
Buni gave the warning at Ngalda town in Fika Local Government Area while flagging-off the construction of a 54-kilometre Ngalda-Mutai road Phase 1 by the North-East Development Commission.
He also tasked candidates vying for various political offices to concentrate on issue-based campaigns that would promote peace and harmony in the State.
“Let me use this opportunity to call on politicians cutting across all the political parties to avoid all forms of violence, inciting and hate speeches in the course of their campaigns.
“We should concentrate on campaign-based issues that would promote our dear State”, he said.
The Governor, however, commended President Muhammadu Buhari for establishing the North-East Development Commission, (NEDC), while also appreciating the Commission for the road project and others aimed at uplifting the living standard of people in the State.
“The construction of this road would obviously open up the rich agriculturally endowed communities, and facilitate easy movement of people, goods and services to stimulate more agricultural, commercial and economic activities in the benefitting communities”, he added.
