Jonathan, Buhari urged to sign undertaking

22 December 2014, 13:23

Lagos -  President Goodluck Jonathan, who is the Peoples Democratic Party's presidential candidate and the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari have been urged to meet and sign a memorandum of undertaking that they would control their respective supporters after the  2015 elections, reports Tribune.

In a letter addressed to the two presidential candidates, a former Nigeria's External Affairs Minister, Professor Bolaji Akinyemi, stated that post-election violence was inevitable in the February 14, 2015, except the duo was committed to a peace undertaking.

Akinyemi, the vice chairman of the just-concluded national conference, said the violence of 2015 is going to be worse than the one of 2011 for the simple reason that the illegal massive importation of weapons into the country has reached such alarming proportions.

He noted that  if President Jonathan wins, the North would erupt into violence as it did in 2011and If  Buhari wins, the Niger Delta will erupt into violence.
