2019: Atiku Finally Signs Peace Accord In Abuja

Published

on

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has finally signed the peace accord for 2019 presidential candidates in Abuja.

Mr Abubakar, who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, endorsed the pact drafted by the National Peace Committee during a ceremony at the Kukah Centre, Abuja.

Naija News recalls that the former vice president was absent when the committee gathered some candidates to sign the pact Tuesday afternoon in Abuja.

President Muhammadu Buhari was present at the Tuesday’s ceremony.

Mr Abubakar immediately came under public backlash for his failure to participate at the crucial event aimed at ensuring a peaceful general election in 2019.

The candidate and his party both blamed a communication gap for their failure to turn up.

Mr Abubakar arrived for the signing on Wednesday afternoon, accompanied by Uche Secondus, the PDP chairman and other party top-shots.

He endorsed the accord at 12:08 p.m., before Abdulsalami Abubakar and some European Union delegates.
