I’m committed to Abuja Peace Accord – Buhari
to Abuja Peace Accord –
The All Progressives Congress Campaign Office has restated General Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment
to the historic peace accord jointly entered into between him and President Goodluck Jonathan,
as a means to forestall violence during and after
the forthcoming general elections.
In a statement released in London, United
Kingdom on Thursday and signed by Malam
Garba Shehu, the Director of Media and
Publicity of the campaign, General Buhari is
quoted to have said that Nigeria was bigger than
any political party or any individual, and that the
country’s greatness would outlive any election.
“Despite the series of provocations by the PDP,
through hate speeches and adverts being
broadcast in the media, we call on our supporters
all around the country to remain calm but
resolute,” General Buhari said.
General Buhari also asked his supporters to
ignore any distractions and remain focused on
making the democratic process work,
encouraging them to ensure that they collect their
PVCs before the March 8 deadline.
The statement further emphasised that Nigeria
was in a democracy and that the greatest weapon
each citizen has is his or her vote.
Buhari called on all his supporters across the
country to go out en masse on March 28 and
April 11 to cast their ballots.
“Your greatest weapon is your vote,” he said.
“That is the only way to bring about CHANGE,
not through violence.”
