By Damilola Kushimo
The Chairman of Isolo Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Hon. Shamsudeen Olaleye, has implored residents of the community to shun any form of violence and move more closer to God.
This was contained in his new year message made available to Echonews.
The council boss who based his message on the forthcoming elections, preached peace to the people of the LCDA and urged them to seek God’s protection, noting that the nooks and crannies of the nation will witness massive electioneering process in the next few months.
He said, “More than ever before, the next few months are crucial. War mongers are spoiling for war, but we must be guided by conviction that war is not the solution. The solution lies within us to shun violence and seek the face of the Lord as we go into election.”
He revealed that his government won’t cease to put in place proactive measures in order to forestall violence and criminal tendencies within the council, reiterating that violence-free election is everyone’s responsibility.
“As a responsible government we hold security of lives and property dearly at heart by putting all the security apparatus on alerts to forestall violence and criminal tendencies within our council area. However, a greater responsibility lies with everyone to be security conscious and move closer to God to take absolute control during the elections period and beyond,” he said.
Specially, he charged religion leaders in the community and nation at large to pray for peace in the country.
