President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday set the tone for rancour-free 2019 electioneering as he joined 67 other presidential candidates to sign a peace accord anchored by the National Peace Committee.

The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, was, however, absent at the signing ceremony, citing communication gap between his party and the secretariat of the peace committee.
Although the committee led by former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd), said invitations were sent to all 73 presidential candidates, including Atiku, the spokesman for the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, told THISDAY last night that neither Atiku nor PDP received the invitation.

The peace accord is an undertaken by the presidential candidates to ensure peaceful and rancour-free campaigns before, during and after the 2019 general elections.

The candidates are also expected to avoid hate speech, fake news or any act capable of causing socio-political unrest in the country.

THISDAY gathered that the event was attended by 68 presidential candidates, including that of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), President Muhammadu Buhari, who promised to ensure free, fair and credible election.

Explaining why Atiku failed to attend the event, PDP said that it never received any invitation, but, however, promised to investigate whether there were communication lapses or not.

‘’I have spoken with our candidate, the national chairman and the national secretary of our party and even my private secretary whether they received the invitation or not. They all told me they never received the invitation. We need to find out what happened,’’ Ologbondiyan stated.

He, however, added, ‘’Because of our high regard for members of the committee, we are investigating whether there was deliberate act by some people to withhold the invitation in order to prevent our candidate from attending the session.

‘’But globally, our candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is known as an ambassador of peace; he is a man of peace; he is committed to peaceful elections and our party is also determined that we have free, fair and credible elections in 2019. We know those who said in 2011 that blood will flow freely if they lose election and in line with their threat, thousands of innocent people were actually killed.’’

Aside Atiku, some of other presidential candidates, Donald Duke of Social Democratic Party (SDP); Kingsley Moghalu of Young Progressives Party (YPP); Oby Ezekwesili of Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN); and Omoyele Sowore of Action Alliance, were also absent.

Buhari, accompanied by APC National Chairman, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, joined 67 other candidates to appended their signatures to the peace accord at the event, which took place at the International Conference Centre (ICC), Abuja.
