President Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and his opponent from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, have arrived at the International Conference Center, ICC, in Abuja, for the second signing of the National Peace Accord.

The coalition, under the banner of Coalition of Political Parties in Lagos State (COPPILS), declared its support for the president at an event held in Surulere, noting that the decision was based on the president's achievements in the last three years.

The PDP said the president was a direct recipient of the "violence", he preached in Zamfara state only a few days ago.

Many people were earlier today killed in stampede at APC rally in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state.

Just as interesting, however, is the note that the Pixel 3 does have that as well but is limited to internal testing. Aside from having a normal and an XL model, it seems that Google isn't really a fan of having two of something.

The PDP therefore urges Buhari and the APC to read the handwriting on the wall and get ready to accept his inevitable defeat so that Nigerians can have a breath of fresh air under the leadership of Atiku, whose campaign has continued to receive rousing reception.

The incident happened after President Buhari delivered his speech shortly after 15:00 local time (14:00 GMT) at the Adokiye Amiesimaka stadium, local media report.

Keyamo's comments come after a key Buhari ally, Kaduna state governor Nasir El-Rufai, said outsiders who intervened in the election "will go back in body bags".

"We want to place on record, once again that any attempt to rig the February 16 election will be vehemently resisted by Nigerians, across board, who have reached a consensus to rescue their nation from the stranglehold of the Buhari Presidency. Nigeria belongs to all of us and nobody can stop us from exercising our constitutionally guaranteed right of holding our rally in the FCT or any other part of our country for that matter", he added.
