Buhari mourns deceased APC supporters in Port Harcourt

Nigeria's president Muhammadu Buhari, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress and the presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, have arrived at the International Conference Center in Abuja for the second signing of the National Peace Accord.

The President is seeking the support of the people of the state in the coming elections.

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

The incident happened at a stadium in the southern city of Port Harcourt when the crowd surged towards a gate after President Buhari's speech.

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.
