2023: Buhari urges candidates to shun personal attacks, says campaigns must be issue-based


President Muhammadu Buhari has asked presidential candidates to shun incitements and commit to issue-based campaigns.

The president said this on Thursday at the 2023 elections peace accord signing organised by the National Peace Committee (NPC) in Abuja.

In a video-message, the President warned that the rise of fake news and misinformation have continued to pose a significant threat to democracy in Nigeria.

Reiterating his commitment to peaceful, credible and transparent elections, President Buhari said what the Peace Committee, led by its chairman and a former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubukar, has been doing over the years, aligns with his belief that Nigeria needs peace in order to achieve credible elections.
