APC And PDP Sign Peace Accord In Nasarawa State ahead of Supreme Court outing


Ahead of the governorship supreme court Judgement, leaders of both All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have signed a peace accord in the state.

While signing the peace deal, security agencies have called for sustainable peace for the growth and development of the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Umar Shehu Nadada during the signing of the peace accord in Lafia, the state capital vowed to deal decisively with anyone who tries to cause Chaos before, during, and after the governorship supreme court Judgement in the state.

“This is to ensure peace before, during, and after the Supreme Court judgment. It is also expected that the party leaders would bring this peace agreement to all their loyalists and supporters across the state”.

“The joint security committee has also resolved to work together towards ensuring a sustainable peace in the state. Whoever goes against this resolve, no matter how highly placed in the society will regret his or her action”.

The CP, therefore, called on all those planning evil against the state to have a rethink.

“Information at the disposal of the command reveals that some faceless individuals are planning to stage violent protests in the state if the Supreme Court verdict does not favor them,”

CP Nadada assured both the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the Democratic Party (PDP) that the joint security forces will continue to be neutral.

Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC Alhaji Aliyu Belli and Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP Mr. Adamu Bako gave assurances that they would ensure peace before during and after the Supreme Court Judgment.

The peace accord was done in the presence of other security agencies in Nasarawa.

The APC was represented by the party’s state chairman Aliyu Bello, APC state secretary Yarus Dakusa, while the PDP by the state organising secretary Yahaya Bunu, PDP state secretary Adamu Bako, woman leader Hon. Stella Oboshi and PDP zonal chairman Isa Sule.

The Supreme Court had fixed 16 of January 2023 for a hearing on the appeal filed by the PDP Governorship Candidate in Nasarawa at the 2023 elections Dr. David Ombugadu against Governor Abdullahi Sule of the APC.
