Written by on September 29, 2022

As campaigns officially commence for 2023 general elections, presidential candidates have signed a peace accord in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

The Chairman of the National Peace Committee and former military head of state, Abdusalami Abubakar, appealed to the 18 political parties, their presidential candidates, and spokespersons to commit to issues-based campaigns, as fake news and misinformation are already creating a toxic environment that is capable of threatening the peaceful conduct of the 2023 general elections.

Meanwhile, major contenders in the presidential race; Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi of the Labour Party, and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, were present. But the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Ahmed Tinubu was not present instead his running mate- Kashim Shettima was at the meeting.
