Groups take anti election violence campaign to Ebonyi traders, artisans
A pro-democracy group, South Saharan Social Development Organisation (SSDO), has staged an awareness campaign in various parts of Abakaliki, Ebonyi State to sensitise the people on the need to abstain from electoral violence.
During the roadshow which took off from All Saints Cathedral, Abakaliki, through Ogoja Road and terminated at Ochudo Park, the campaigners took the message to traders, artisans, motorcyclists, market women, and others.
Before then, the group had, during a 4-day pre-election dialogue themed: “Towards Credible 2019 Election,” held seminars for various youth and women groups as well as traditional and religious leaders, at the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in Abakaliki.
It was sponsored by Open Society Initiative of West Africa (OSIWA) and Department for International Development (DFID).
