Sierra Leonean U.S.-based singer, Lady Felicia Grant-Turay, has averred that no political party or politician is worth dying for.

Speaking to Concord times in an exclusive interview, Lady Felicia urges young people not to partake in any form of violence as politicians often times use them only to later abandon them. She thus urges the youth to go out and vote peacefully on March 7th and not allow any party to use them.

She calls on youth and the entire citizenry to keep the peace and ensure violence -free elections, adding that peace is key to enhancing the democratic credentials of the country.

“Please let us remember that peace is God’s unique idea which lays a solid foundation for national development,” she says, adding that everybody can help build a better future for “our children.”

The philanthropic artist reckons that election is not war, and that everybody should see each other as friends and brothers and not enemies.

“We all have a responsibility to be tolerant and be law-abiding so that peace can reign in our elections,” she says.

She maintains that the future of the country is in the hands of Sierra Leoneans and that the latter should protect the country’s heritage for the betterment of future generations.

The Sierra Leonean star advised voters to come out peacefully and vote for the next president on March 7, urging those that have not collected their voter identity cards yet to do so now and have a say as it is their right to vote.
