Presidential candidates sign peace pact ahead of 2019 poll

Presidential candidates in next year’s general elections yesterday signed a peace pact in Abuja, pledging to maintain peace and ensure a rancour-free poll.

At a one-day conference under the auspices of National Peace Committee (NPC) chaired by former head of state, Gen. Abdusalami Abubakar (rtd), the presidential candidates resolved to adopt the same principles that guided the success of the 2015 elections and, therefore, committed themselves to run issue-based campaigns at national, state and local government levels.

Consequent upon this, they pledged to refrain from campaign that will involve religious incitement, ethnic or tribal profiling, both by themselves and by all agents acting on their behalf.
