ABUJA-FOR the umpteenth time, President Muhammadu Muhammadu Buhari has assured that he would make effort to ensure that the forthcoming elections starting from Saturday will be credible.

President Muhammadu Buhari took his re-election campaign on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to Rivers State earlier today.

"We want to place on record, once again that any attempt to rig the February 16 election will be vehemently resisted by Nigerians, across board, who have reached a consensus to rescue their nation from the stranglehold of the Buhari Presidency".

According to the statement, the President described the deaths as "needless loss of lives and an anti-climax to a highly successful outing" in the oil city that could have been averted if there was an orderly exit from the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium.

Compared to 2015, global interest in Nigeria's election has been muted as the USA administration focuses on domestic issues and Britain wrestles with its impending exit from the EU.

"Both Guests of Honour enjoy enormous respect in Nigeria and beyond and we look forward to his counsel and advice to help Nigeria navigate through what will hopefully be a peaceful and fair electoral cycle".

It is expected to be a keenly contested election.

The peace accord is to commit political parties to peaceful elections and a non-violent transfer of power in the country.

The planned trip was facilitated by the Kofi Annan Foundation and the National Peace Committee.

Concise News reports that those who witnessed the signing included the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, Patricia Scotland; former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd); Bishop Mathew Kukah, as well as other members of the National Peace Committee (NPC).
