I’m irrevocably committed to Abuja Peace Accord – Buhari

Muhammadu Buhari, APC presidential candidate

The All Progressives Congress Campaign Office has restated candidate Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to the historic peace accord jointly entered into between him and President Goodluck Jonathan as a means to forestall violence during and after the forthcoming general elections.

In a statement released in London, United Kingdom on Thursday and signed by Garba Shehu, Director of Media and Publicity of the campaign, Mr. Buhari is quoted to have said that Nigeria is bigger than any political party or any individual, and that the country’s greatness would outlive any election.

“Despite the series of provocations by the PDP, through hate speeches and adverts being broadcast in the media, we call on our supporters all around the country to remain calm but resolute,” Mr. Buhari said.

Mr. Buhari also asked his supporters to ignore any distractions and remain focused on making the democratic process work, encouraging them to ensure that they collect their PVCs before the March 8 deadline fixed by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The statement further emphasised that Nigeria was in a democracy, and that the greatest weapon each citizen has is his or her vote. He called on all his supporters across the country to go out en masse on March 28 and April 11 to cast their ballots.

“Your greatest weapon is your vote,” he said. “That is the only way to bring about change, not through violence.”

    Buhari had better be irrevocably committed to the Abuja Peace Accord because doing otherwise would land IT (used deliberately because Buhari is a violent animal) in hot water. Any Incitement to violence or disorder by IT will be ruthlessly and decisively crushed and even IT will not be spared. A word is enough for the wise.

    I have a question for all that are supporting Buhari: Will Buhari ever return Nigeria to true federalism? Will Buhari implement the agreed issue on National Conference organized by President Jonathan? Do you all who are the supporters of Buhari not feel the need to restructure Nigeria to true federalism? Can you all not see why the parasitic North do not want the Country restructured? The South is a slave to the North. You guys can’t see it. You guys can’t feel it?

    Lets vote Jonathan to implement the agreed issues of the National Conference and let the Presidency go back to the North in 2019. APC or PDP, who cares as long as the South is freed from slavery from the North after the implementation of issues agreed on National Conference. Southern Nigeria, please wisen up?

      Ade, I will answer your questions one by one. First, you have already noticed that President Jonathan has destroyed the true federalism by paying more of his attention to one area of the country to the detriment of other zones. Yes GMB is a true federalist who had ruled Nigeria before and this time a true democrat, he is going to be a true federalism President. Second, on National Conference, do you think there was anything coming out of that jamboree? If there was anything, don’t you think President Jonathan would have used part of them. There was nothing of consequent in that report requiring President Jonathan’s attention to talk of GMB. You cannot implement NC report as long as the National Assembly though not equivalent of NC, exist in the country. National Assembly is sovereign body. Your third question should have gone to President Jonathan and PDP who had sixteen years with absolute majority in National Assembly, it cannot be a yardstick of measurement of APC . Ade you have deviate from facts to semantics. For fifteen years under PDP, who rule Nigeria? President Obasanjo from Ogun State and President Jonathan from Bayelsa State. Both had fourteen years from the South. Late President Yar Adua two years, give and take. Where is the marginalization? It is you with your crude mind that cannot see the current issues before Nigerians. We are fed up with PDP, we want change. Do you always wear same cloth, eat same eba everyday? Don’t you like change of environment. CHANGE! YES WE CAN.

      I am a southerner and no slave to any northerner. Because we cohabit the same land and in the spirit of good neighbourliness, I live in peace with the northerner, even adopt him as a brother because we share so many things in common. Except I walk away or he goes away, we remain brothers and the earlier we understand this truth, the prosperous it would be for both of us. Remember we do not have to be the best of friends to live successfully together. Respect…

    Late Augustus Aikhomu said we should read his lips when he said misappropriation is different from misapplication. Now Buuhari’s statements/press releases and his body language are mutuially exclusive and there the doubt lies. A leopard is a leopard until death visits.

    If you like tell your supporters not to be calm, it is only fayose and Fani Kayode that is criticising you and you are threatening to pull out of the peace accord, an accord that your followers ignored and stoned Jonathan and pulled down all his campaign billboards, a week after the peace accord was signed.if it were you that apc and their supporters has been disrespecting the way Jonathan and his family has been insulted and called all sorts of name, that means you would have jailed and killed a lot of people like you did when you were head of state

  • Mr. Abdin

    Well done GMB for displaying high level of political maturity.

    • hope

      political maturity indeed. hypocrites of d highest order, u just threatens us in Nigeria, now you went London to say something else. pls u might know but God is watching.

  • onenigerian2014

    I’d agree with you, but then we’d both be wrong. You just some few hours ago, you may be forced to withdraw from the
    accord. So, what brought about the change of position? Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go it must be war. I have never understood why your head is so big. I mean there is nothing in there. Hey stop Buhari. The person who lends you his brain is worried. You know, worried that it might get damaged.

    What a way for Buhari and his APC to realize their sheer stupidity in threatening to quit Abuja peace accord?!!!

    But it’s rather late as Nigerians have clearly seen how true it is that the leopard is only pretending, but can never change its spots!!!
