LEGISREPORTS NG – In just two days before the Presidential Election rescheduled for March 28, the leading candidates of the two main political parties in Nigeria, met with members of Nigeria National Peace Committee in Abuja to sign yet another peace pact.
President Goodluck Jonathan of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari in the meeting pledged to accept the outcome of the presidential poll after a closed door meeting held on Thursday morning in Abuja.
The meeting initiated by the National Peace Committee for the 2015 General Elections, was led by a former Head of Nigerian Military Government, General Abdusalami Abubakar (retd.)
The peace meeting is meant to haul out commitment from the leading candidates that the forthcoming elections will be violence-free.
At the end of the meeting, Jonathan and Buhari agreed to sign another peace accord following the peace pact they earlier signed alongside other presidential candidates in January.
The agreement signing ceremony held at Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja had the national chairmen of their parties: Adamu Mu’azu, PDP, and John Oyegun, APC in attendance.
