27 October 2016, 16:31

Akure - 21 political parties participating in the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State, have signed a peace accord aimed at ensuring peace before, during and after the election, reports Sahara Reporters.

The political parties according to New Telegraph included the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), All Progressives Congress (APC), Alliance for Democracy (AD), Social Democratic Party (SDP) and Democratic Peoples Party (DPP), among others agreed to re-spect the rule of law and abide by the provisions of the Electoral Act. They also agreed to run issue-based campaigns and thereby refrain from campaigns of calumny capable of inciting violence

At the event chaired by Police Commissioner Hilda Ibifuro-Harrison and held in Akure, the leaders of the political parties vowed to work with the police to ensure peace during the conduct of the election.

Ibifuro-Harrison warned politicians against using their supporters to cause a breach of the peace during the election.

She said the signing of the agreement became necessary to prevent violence and maintain law and order and peace before, during and after the election.

Responding on behalf of other political parties, Fatai Adams, of the Peoples Democracy Party, thanked the police boss for her commitment to peaceful election in the state.
