Kukah commends presidential candidates for adherence to Peace Accord

THE Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, has commended presidential candidates of the 18 political parties, who contested the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections, for adhering to the principles of the signed National Peace Accord.

Kukah made the commendation during an interview on Arise Television News this morning. He said the candidates conducted themselves in a manner that brought respect to Nigeria’s politics and the political processes and thus must be commended.

“As a convener of the National Peace Committee, we watched diligently to see that the principles enunciated in the signing of the Peace Accord are implemented.

“Let me commend the key political actors because, despite where we find ourselves now, on balance, Nigerians must agree that the presidential candidates did conduct themselves in a manner and in a way that brought a lot of respect to politics and the political processes. They deserve our commendation because we didn’t experience the usual recriminations and so on and so forth”, he said.
