NewsBuhari Asks Presidential Candidates to Commit to Issue-Based Campaigns

ABUJA — President Muhammadu Buhari says presidential candidates should avoid incitement and commit to issue-based campaigns.

The president issued this warning on Thursday at the 2023 elections peace accord (NPC) in Abuja.

According to a statement released by Garba Shehu, presidential spokesperson, Buhari said fake news and misinformation tend to fuel personal attacks, insults, and incitements.

”I appeal to the contestants, especially their publicity agents and media advisers to shun personal attacks, avoid insults and incitement, reject the spread of fake news, and commit to issue-based campaigns and political rallies,” he said.

”The 2023 election is more than an election, it is an opportunity to serve Nigeria, to defend Nigeria and to uphold her unity and progress.

”Therefore, I call on all Nigerians, political parties, politicians, security agencies, the Independent National Electoral Commission, and all stakeholders to ensure that Nigeria is placed first above regional and sectional claims.”

”Once again, let me emphasise that everything must be done to support the National Peace Committee in its work to ensure peaceful elections in Nigeria.”
