 Jonathan Warns Against Extra-Judicial Killings, Charges Youths On Peaceful Elections

Jonathan gave the advice, yesterday, when youth groups in the Niger Delta led by the President of Ijaw Youth Council, IYC, Pereotubo Oweilaemi paid him a courtesy visit at the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, GJF, Office in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
He said: “Without peace, there cannot be development in the society. If we want to develop Nigeria as leaders and citizens, then collectively we must work hard and make sacrifices that will bring peace to our country.
“When we have conflicts, it creates a very negative impression in the society and investors are very mindful of these impressions.
The most fundamental tool for building an economy of a nation is peace.” The former President also charged security operatives to demonstrate their goodwill towards peaceful elections by desisting from extra-judicial killings. He said: “Anytime someone dies extra-judicially, it reduces the integrity of the country. So, if our security personnel are interested in peace, especially during this electioneering, then they must do everything to suppress extra-judicial killings; because when one person is killed unlawfully, it affects everyone.”
