The Presidential Candidates of various political parties in Nigeria have converged in Abuja to sign a national Peace Accord ahead of the 2023 Presidential Elections.
POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that a former Head of State and Chairman, National Peace Committee, Abdulsalami Abubakar, had stated that politicians contesting the 2023 general election had to sign a peace pact.
Abdulsalami made this known on last Thursday, September 22, in Minna, Niger State, after a meeting with the committee members. He stated that during electioneering campaigns, politicians and their supporters created incitements which could endanger the country’s peace.
He said; “The pattern of public communication among political actors, their publicity agents, spokespersons, and media consultants has amplified the potential for personal attacks, insults, and incitement.”
“It has shifted focus away from issue-based campaigns, to consolidating identity politics and the politics of thuggery.”
The signing of peace commenced today at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.
The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, Atiku of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Rabiu Kwankwaso of the NNPP, Chris Imolumen of the Accord Party and Omoyele Sowore of the AAC were all present.
However, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu was nowhere to be seen.
Below are Photos from the event;
Tinubu is not contesting
I wonder why Sowore, the mid fielder went to a meeting. I am looking to understand him. Noted that the lion is AWOL
AND I SEE Shettima HIS VP IN THE PICTURE.
Therefore, he was represented by his able VP. Meaning he was fully in attendance with the UNECESSARY UNPRODUCTIVE and NONRESULT accord that has offered nothing since it came into the political scene in Nigeria.
WHERE IS THE PEAECE IN NIGERIA?
Ask the stupid question to Buhari and Tinubu whom you are blindly supporting, you don’t have any shame to ask such question, you know they failed and you still want them to continue with failure, Shame on people like you
now Do you want the reporter to report that He is present..
This is a time we need to see healthy strong upstanding doing contestant.
Why for anything reason for top condenser to be absent? This is something made for presidencial candidates not vp.
Nigerians will endanger the future of this nation by leaving power in the hands of old fevel men
Let me tell you mickykarim you are very stupid. Is Peter obi not there. Is Atiku not there. Is Kwankwso not there why is it only him that’s missing. He hasn’t even become president he has started flying abroad for medication. Which means when he enters na. We won’t even see him eye sef. And stupid people like you would still come up with one stupid excuse.
Stop hiding under the pretence of condemning this initiative. You are actually speaking for Tunubu. The truth is that if other candidates made them selves available, what stop Tunubu from attending. Nigeria don’t deserve another absentia president. We deserve better.
You are absolutely right
So you’re supporting the presidential aspirant to be absent while other presidential aspirants were present? Look at yourself very well.
They can’t keep to their promise
Tiunbu absent is a sign that he is not healthy he was also absent at NBA conference I quest shetima is the presidential candidate of APC Nigerian be wise
He was represented by Shetima at the NBA conference and now represented by same person. The real work has not begun and BAT is either too big or too weak to attend to engagements. For me, I already see who will be the president if APC ever wins.
A practical peace accord part will go a long way… But most Nigerian politicians don’t give regard to due process. May God help us get the best this time around and may the enemies of our great Nation fail over their evil plots…
I sence troble since the APC presidendial candidate is not there. Hmmm…………
