Abubakar went on to note that a free, fair and credible election can be possible if candidates and their political parties abide by the peace accord.

Abubakar said:

“As we always say, there must be peace because if there is no peace, there will be no country, there will be no state and there will be no election.
“So, it is absolutely necessary to ensure that there is peace and for the contestants, they must know that there can only be a winner.
“And they must take the outcome of the election in good faith. If the election is free and fair they must accept the result. If they have any misgiving, there are channels in the courts to seek redress.”
