The two leading candidates for Saturday’s Presidential elections, President Muhammadu Buhari of the ruling APC, and Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, have signed a Peace Accord for the second time.
In his remarks, following signings by more than 70 presidential candidates, President Buhari welcomed international observers, thanking them for their partnership and called on citizens to go out and vote peacefully.
Concise News reports that at the event, inside the International Conference Centre, Abuja, Buhari, 76, also expressed his satisfaction with the passage of the #NotTooYoungToRun bill.
“We grow our sense of political culture in Nigeria,” the incumbent Nigerian leader said.
“Secondly, we are witnessing an exciting development in the area of the engagement of the youths and our women in the democratic process.
“Hitherto, these groups have opened doors to be in the mainstream of our political competition. It is in appreciation of their contribution that we passed the #NotTooYoungToRun bill last year.”
Present at the venue were former Head of State Abdulsalami Abubakar, Bishop Mathew Kukah, the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, Patricia Scotland, among many other notable personalities.
