Chairman of the committee Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd.), who signed the invitation letter stated that the peace agreement will be signed twice before the general elections.

The letter stated, “the first accord signing is intended to commit political parties, candidates and their spokespersons to conduct their campaigns both online and offline in a peaceful manner, devoid of ethnic, religious and hateful rhetoric that will incite violence and further aggravate the growing tension in the nation.

“The second peace agreement will hold in January, 2023.

“These interventions are to complement ongoing peace initiatives aimed at promoting a violence-free and inclusive electioneering process before, during and after the declaration of the final election results.”
