INEC to Consult National Peace Committee Ahead of General Elections

Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it will be consulting the Abdulsalami Abubakar-led National Peace Committee (NPC) ahead of commencement of campaigns by political parties for next year’s general elections.

The former Head of State and respected cleric, Bishop Matthew Kukah, have been championing peaceful elections through the signing of Peace Accord by candidates and political parties on the platform of the National Peace Committee.

According to INEC, managing next year’s elections is huge and requires adequate consultations with stakeholders.
