President Muhammadu Buhari was physically present at the event organised by the National Peace Committee and did sign the pact.

There are 91 registered political parties in the country, but it was not immediately clear how many parties signed the accord.

Former Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar and Catholic bishop, Mathew Kukah led presidential candidates to sign a similar accord in 2015, a measure that was widely deemed crucial to the peaceful outcome of that contentious election.
