The National President, Share Descendants Union (SDU), Elder Gabriel Jimoh has called on the indigenes of Share in Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State to shun divisive tendencies and unite for the common goal of the community ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Jimoh who gave the advice when he delivered his remarks at an inaugural meeting of the union held in Ilorin, urged all sons and daughters of the community to place the interest of the town above any other parochial interest.
He enjoined the youth not to allow themselves to be used by any politician to achieve selfish interest, but advised them to do politics with moderation by adhering strictly to the rules of the game.
He stressed the need for sons and daughters of the community to be patriotic and shun politics of hatred and bitterness, saying that the project Nigeria, Kwara and indeed Share should be paramount to everyone.
According to him, “Share, our community should be our interest not politics. We should be concerned on how to facilitate government’s presence to our father land. All members of the new executive should also endeavour to maintain political neutrality”.
Jimoh therefore, called on politicians not to heat up the polity unnecessarily but encourage them to run an issue-based campaign in order to ensure a hitch-free transition.
The National President also charged the electoral umpire not to be biased but adopt best practices in conducting free, fair, credible and generally accepted election in the interest of all and sundry.
