The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has said he was not invited to the signing of a peace pact for 2019 presidential candidates in Abuja.

Mazi Paul Ibe, Media Aide to Atiku, said his principal did not receive any invitation to the event which was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) among others.

“Following media enquiries as to the absence of HE @atiku from the signing of the Peace Pact, I wish to state that the PDP presidential candidate did not receive invitation to the event,” Atiku’s spokesman, Paul Ibe tweeted on Tuesday.

The 2019 peace pact, convened by a former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, was to commit the candidates and the political parties to a peaceful poll.

However, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari attended the event alongside other candidates to sign the peace agreement, which was drafted by the National Peace Committee.

This is not the first time such event will be held: a similar pact was signed by presidential candidates in 2015.
