The chairman of the Senate Committee on Local Content gave the advice in a statement by his Media Adviser, Chief Kayode Odunaro, also urging his supporters and Nigerians to shun violence and inciting utterances.

He noted that the issues around the campaigns are clear enough in terms of Nigerians choosing between going back to the ugly past of 16 years that brought the country to almost ruination as a nation or continue the on - going  cleansing of the mess of past administrations with enduring positive developments in the last three years to propel our nation to the next level of human development.

“As we begin campaign for the 2019 General Elections, I call on my supporters and Nigerians to shun violence and violence inducing utterances. 

"The issues to campaign for candidates are clear enough in terms of antecedents, performance in public offices if any in the past and areas of focus if elected. There is no need to resort to violence for a just cause of service to the people,” Adeola stated.

The Senator stressed that in all his legislative position held in the past and presently, he has continuously strives  to deliver on the core mandate of the legislature leading to his repeated and progressive election right up to the highest legislative body in Nigeria.

"As I reported back to my party members leading to my overwhelming winning of the party direct primary, I will in course of the campaign report back on the mandate given to me in 2015 by the electorate as well as chart the way forward for my Senatorial district in the incoming 9th Senate," he stated.
