Many killed in stampede at APC rally in Port-Harcourt

Many killed in stampede at APC rally in Port-Harcourt

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness at the death of four supporters of the All Progressive Congress (APC) at its presidential rally in Port Harcourt, Rivers state on Tuesday.

Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, Baroness Patricia Scotland was also billed to attend the event.

He had been set to deliver a keynote speech at a ceremony for the signing of a peace accord by presidential candidates.

"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".

"Considering some of the challenges faced, the Committee organized the 1st signing of the National Peace Accord on 11th December, 2018 to support peaceful campaigns and political rallies".




But a statement by Clinton's spokesman Angel Ureña regretted the former President's visit might be politicised in a way that is not in line with the goals of the committee.

Two electoral commission offices housing voting materials were burned down within a week, the country's electoral body said Sunday.

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.

Speaking further on the arrangement, Barkindo said "The National Peace Committee, mindful of the importance of peaceful elections and non-violent transfer of power has engaged various stakeholders in preparation for the 2019 General Elections".

More than 200 people were killed and about 40,000 displaced in violence after Nigeria's 2011 presidential elections, when then-incumbent Goodluck Jonathan defeated Buhari at the polls.
