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.
