Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States of America, and Baroness Patricia Scotland, Secretary General of the Commonwealth, will both deliver keynote addresses at the signing of the National Peace Accord ahead of Nigeria’s 2019 ballot.

The National Peace Committee announced this in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja, signed by the Head of Secretariat, Fr. Atta Barkindo.

The statement disclosed that the Committee, led by former Nigerian Head of State General Abdulsalami Abubakar, has scheduled the 2nd signing of the National Peace Accord by 10 am on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at Abuja International Conference Centre.

“President Clinton would also hold meetings with President Muhammadu Buhari and former Vice-President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar.  As we move into Nigeria’s national elections, the threat of unrest has to be taken seriously. 

“Both Guests of Honour enjoy enormous respect in Nigeria and beyond and we look forward to his counsel and advice to help Nigeria navigate through what will hopefully be a peaceful and fair electoral cycle,” the statement said.

It added: “The National Peace Committee is grateful to the Kofi Annan Foundation for supporting this process, and, after 2015, again supporting free and fair elections in Nigeria.

“The NPC has engaged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), security services, 91 registered parties, the media and civil society organisations. Considering some of the challenges faced, the Committee organised the 1st signing of the National Peace Accord on 11th December, 2018 to support peaceful campaigns and political rallies.

“This signing is aimed towards committing stakeholders to accepting the outcome of the vote, as long as it is announced by INEC, the body empowered by law and is adjudged to be free, fair and credible.”
