In an effort to maintain peace and stability during the ongoing 2023 electoral exercise, the Nigeria Police Force has charged presidential candidates of all political parties, including the APC, PDP, LP, and NNPP, to caution their party stalwarts and supporters against making inciting comments that could lead to unrest among the populace.
In a press release, the NPF emphasized the importance of maintaining the rule of law, respect for the Constitution, and constituted authority amongst supporters, stating that as leading and respected figures in their respective political parties, presidential candidates hold a responsibility to ensure that the nation does not fall into anarchy on the basis of interests and sentiments.
The Force also urged candidates to desist from putting undue pressure on the electoral process of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and to encourage their supporters to uphold the tenets of the Peace Accord that was recently signed for the smooth conduct of the 2023 general elections.
The NPF acknowledged the largely peaceful conduct of the general populace and electorates thus far. However, it has deemed it necessary to call for calm and patience as INEC intensifies its efforts on speedy collation to declare the election winner.
The Nigeria Police Force hopes that with the cautioning of presidential candidates and their supporters, the remaining stages of the electoral process will be free of any unnecessary excitement and tension that could disrupt the peace and stability of the country.
