A renowned advocate of peace and environmental rights activist, Comrade Sheriff Mulade, has, again, appealed to candidates for the sake of Nigerians and Africa to accept the outcome of the 2019 polls for peace to reign in the country.
Comrade Mulade, who made the appeal from Nairobi, Kenya, where he is attending the African Youth Leadership Conference on Youths inclusion in governance and economy, said that the nation must not be thrown into confusion as a result of the general elections.
The renowned peace ambassador strongly appealed to Nigerians, particularly candidates and party leaders to bury their ego, pride and accept the outcome of the 2019 general elections for the sake of millions of Nigerians and Africans.
He said: “It is pertinent to note that Africa and the world in general are watching us and we must do everything humanly possible to display and show maturity in our democracy for others to emulate “.
He also said: “The time has come for Nigerian politicians to learn from former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and opposition leader, Engr Raila Odinga of Kenya for giving good example for the sake of their people.
“I therefore call on Nigerian politicians to emulate them and become the heroes of democracy in Africa. It is worthy to state that accepting defeat is not a failure or weakness, but strengthen our democratic institutions in Africa.”
