The two top contenders in the forthcoming March 28 Presidential election, President Goodluck Jonathan of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Gen. Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), have signed another peace accord in Abuja.
The two candidates met and signed another agreement, following the peace pact they both signed alongside other presidential candidates in January.
The meeting was brokered by the National Peace Committee for the 2015 General Elections, led by retired Gen. Abdusalami Abubakar, and is aimed at extracting commitment from the leading candidates that the forthcoming elections will be violence-free.
They were accompanied by the national chairmen of their parties.
The peace accord is aimed at fostering peaceful elections in the 2015 general election.
