“It is apparent that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alh. Atiku Abubakar tried to keep away from signing the nationwide peace accord forward of the nation’s 2019 General Elections.
To all discerning Nigerians, the PDP and Atiku’s doubtful declare of a “communication lapse” as motive for his or her no-show at Tuesday’s formal signing ceremony is hogwash, because the peace committee duly and formally invited the PDP and Atiku like different candidates and political events contesting the 2019 Elections.
Atiku’s eventual resolution to signal the peace deal is clearly a face-saving transfer following widespread condemnation that greeted his preliminary refusal to comply with the peace deal. We, nonetheless, should not lose sight of the damaging and ominous indicators the PDP and Atiku have inadvertently proven Nigerians within the leadup to the elections.

The APC reiterates that safety and different related businesses have to be on excessive alert to test this harmful menace posed by the PDP’s deliberate actions for the final elections. In 2019 and past, the votes of the citizens should rely and the need of the citizens should prevail. We should stand in opposition to and resist plans by retrogressive parts who are actually nested within the PDP and their brokers to disrupt elections by violence and different undemocratic practices.
For signing the 2019 election nationwide peace accord, the Party affirms the dedication of the President Muhammadu Buhari led APC authorities to a free and truthful electoral course of.
