Vice-Admiral Usman Jibrin, a gubernatorial candidate in Kogi 2023 off season election, strongly condemns the recent attack on Murtala Yakubu Ojonimi Ajaka, a prominent political figure. We express our deepest condolences to those who were injured and their family, as well as to all those affected by this heinous act of violence.
Acts of violence have no place in our society, and we firmly stand against any form of violence or intimidation that threatens the safety and well-being of our citizens. Such actions not only undermine the democratic process but also create an environment of fear and discord.
I would like to emphasize that the strength of a nation lies in the ability to engage in peaceful and constructive dialogue, even in the face of political differences. We urge all political leaders and citizens to reject violence as a means of resolving conflicts and instead promote a culture of tolerance, understanding, and respect for differing opinions.
While we acknowledge the importance of robust political debates and discussions, it is crucial to remember that violence only perpetuates a cycle of hatred and division. We call upon all individuals, irrespective of their political affiliations, to exercise restraint and seek peaceful means to address their concerns.
Additionally, we issue a stern warning to those who seek to disrupt the peaceful fabric of our society. Law enforcement agencies will spare no effort in bringing the perpetrators of this heinous act to justice. We urge anyone with information relating to the attack to cooperate fully with the authorities and report any suspicious activities that may endanger the safety of our communities.
In times like these, it is crucial that we come together as a people and promote unity, understanding, and solidarity.
We encourage citizens to stand up against violence, reject extremist ideologies, and support the democratic values that define our great nation.
Myself and my Campaign Organization remains committed to fostering a peaceful and inclusive society. We will continue to work tirelessly towards promoting dialogue, understanding, and cooperation among all segments of society, in order to build a better future for our nation.
