Fr. Ebubemonso who said that at every contest one person must emerge victorious, advised that no life of any Nigerian is worth losing in the name of electoral failure or victory and thus urged all Nigerians especially those in positions of authority in the religious and political circles as well as markets to ensure they mobilize for peace rather than crisis as it pays no one any good.

He called for a community spirit by Nigerians to enable them come out during Saturday’s rescheduled elections and urged them not to be discouraged with the postponement of presidential election to this week’s Saturday by INEC but to mobilize themselves and vote for a candidate of their choice. He said electorates should not allow anything dampen their spirits or discourage them from coming out en mass to vote a candidate of their choice.
He commended the leadership of IPOB led by Nnamdi Kanu for suspending the stay at home order for better participation and a hitch free elections in South East in particular and Nigeria at large.
Fr. Ebubemonso said: ‘’This is time for change and I beg Nigerians to uphold democracy by coming out to exercise their franchise. Don’t mortgage your conscience. Don’t mortgage your future.

There is need for change for a better Nigeria.
Fr Obimma aka Ebubemonso continued: ‘’Agitation is good but agitate with your votes because your PVC is your power, your authority and your right. I believe that a successful businessman and an expert in Economics have what it takes to be the leader of Nigeria. I appeal to Nigerians to come out and vote. We pray that INEC will conduct the election free and fair and give the world a credible result because the World is looking at us as a country and our Lord is watching.
‘’I want Nigerians to vote for somebody who has the capacity to move the country forward and may our youths and everybody at that shun all forms of electoral violence because the election is not worth of losing any Nigerian life. There is no alternative for peace, win or lose, shun violence in all ramifications.
