Multi-award-winning Nigerian singer, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as 2baba, has met candidates of the three major parties participating in the July 16 Osun governorship poll and urged them to prevail on their supporters to eschew violence during the poll.

Idibia met, at different times, with Dr Akin Ogunbiyi of the Accord Party, Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress, and Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party, and made them sign a peace pact, thereby pledging commitment to a peaceful poll.

The songwriter, who led his ‘Vote Not Fight’ campaign team to the state, while speaking at a meeting he held with Adeleke in Ede on Wednesday, called on him to promote messages that would deter perpetrators of electoral violence and violence against women during the governorship election.

Responding, Adeleke, pledged commitment to a peaceful poll and called on members of other parties participating in the poll to also keep to their promise of a violence-free election.
