They urged the candidates and supporters to abide by the peace accord recently signed by the gubernatorial candidate to ensure peaceful conduct of the polls.

Those who spoke at the event are; Imam Abdulsalam Akinwumi, REV. FR. Thaddeus Ajayi , Alhaja Saidiyah Oladapo, and Chairperson WOWICAN, Dudusola Iyabode.
