BREAKING: Atiku Absent As Buhari, Other Candidates Sign Peace Accord
The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar was, on Tuesday, conspicuously absent at the signing of peace accord for the 2019 elections.
Apart from Atiku, Presidential candidate of Social Democratic Party (SDP), Donald Duke, Presidential candidate of Young Progressives Party (YPP), Kingsley Moghalu, Oby Ezekwesili of Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) and Omoyele Sowore of Action Alliance, also failed to attend peace accord meeting.
The accord was organised by the National Peace Committee which said invitation was sent to all 73 presidential candidates contesting the 2019 elections.
Former head of state and chairman of the committee, Abdulsalami Abubakar applauded Buhari for his commitment to ensuring peaceful elections but said security should be a source of worry to everyone.
Abubakar cautioned leaders that their acts of commission or omission could make matters worse, appealing to them to lead by example and temper their utterances and action with responsibility and patriotism.
