THE Enugu State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared a 7-day period of prayer and fasting for peaceful elections in the State.
Making this known to Journalists in Enugu on Thursday, the Director-General of the PDP campaign organization in the State, Dr Charles Egumgbe said the party was keen on a peaceful poll in the State.
Egumgbe said the party “in keeping with our tradition of entrusting the affairs of the State to the hands of God, we passionately call on Ndi Enugu to join us as we observe one week of prayers and fasting from December 1 to 7, for peaceful, transparent and violence-free elections in 2019, which Enugu State is known for.
“We also urge them to pray for issue-based, smooth and successful campaigns in the State.
“We, therefore, reassure the good people of Enugu State that the PDP-led government will, through God’s grace, continue to maintain the tempo of peace and security in the State for them to enjoy more dividends as the true heroes of democracy.”
The PDP used the opportunity to thank the people of the State “for their unceasing prayers, support, goodwill and solidarity.”
