Explaining further, Ajose said the essence of the peace accord was for politicians to eschew violence and embrace peace, adding that there won’t be any development anywhere there’s tension.

The chairman of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Apostle Enyinnaya Okwuonu, enjoined the politicians to embrace each other, adding that the election will produce winners and losers.

Okwuonu said whoever wins should be magnanimous in victory, while those who didn’t make it should accept their fate or seek redress if not satisfied with the process instead of resorting to self help.

To Bishop Stephen Ogedengbe, one of the guest speakers, the antidote to peaceful co-existence is to  talk to your enemies so that you can resolve your differences.

Apostle Titi Oluwadare during the opening charge urged everyone to pray for Nigeria as the country goes to a crucial poll in nine days. 

She said there’s serious contention by the kingdom of darkness against Nigeria.

Apostle Oluwadare who spoke virtually from her base in the United Kingdom said 

Political parties present at the peace accord should imbibe the spirit of good sportsmanship.
