….Visits Edo State’s gubernatorial aspirants
While in Edo State to receive his honorary degree from Igbinedion University, Okada, 2Baba took the opportunity to promote his ‘Vote Not Fight’ campaign in the state with the coming gubernatorial election holding in November, 2016. 2Face paid a courtesy visit to Mr. Matthew Iduoriyekemwen – the PDP gubernatorial aspirant for the state – and presented him with a bottle of Campari before officially introducing him to the #VoteNotFight campaign. The aspirant expressed delight at the visit and assured 2Baba that he would do his part to ensure peaceful elections take place in Edo State.
Not stopping there, the pop star equally visited the APC aspirant, Mr. Godwin Obaseki to seek support and enlighten him about the #VoteNotFight campaign. Mr. Obaseki, like his PDP counterpart, assured 2Baba of his unflinching support for the campaign and assured him of his commitment towards ensuring peaceful elections in the state.
The “Vote Not Fight, Election No Be War” campaign is an initiative that seeks to promote peaceful participation in elections, one that recognises that political participation, not violence, is the best way to advocate for change.
