Singer announced as youth ambassador for NYCN
The singer launched a 'VOTE NOT FIGHT' aimed at sensitizing the youths and electoral candidates on a need to avoid violence during elections.
The celebrated music star was issued his certificate of conferment during the International Youth Day celebration which took place at the Samuel Ogebemudia Stadium, Edo State.
Prior to this, 2Baba, on the August 11, 2016, spearheaded a 'VOTE NOT FIGHT' campaign session which was held at the Youth Centre in Benin, Edo State.
He spent the day sensitizing the youth on the need to remain peaceful during and after the forthcoming electoral process.
2Baba spoke at length to the youth, on the need to refuse being lured into violence by power hungry politicians and enjoined the gubernatorial election candidates present at the session, to avoid employing a do-or- die mentality towards the forthcoming elections.
He further urged candidates to maintain the peace despite the result of the elections.
The speech was met with a rousing applause from his audience after which he made both candidates and youth sign the VNF pledge form and made public statements to show their commitment to the VNF campaign.
The award winning songster also embarked on a media tour to propagate the message of non-violence during elections.
This followed the very successful first phase of the 'VOTE NOTFIGHT' campaign.
His first stop was at the ITV studios where he discussed the ideals of the 'VOTE NOT FIGHT' campaign with TV host, Emmanuel Akpolohor.
He proceeded to Raypower 105.5 FM studios also in Benin city, where he shed more light on the workshop and rally held on the 11th of August, 2016.
