Former Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, believes that President Muhammadu Buhari is not committed to free and fair elections in 2019.
This is coming following the Peace Accord undertaking that was signed Yesterday, December 11, 2018, by 2019 presidential candidates, which includes president Buhari.
The signing of the Peace Accord documents symbolizes the candidates committed to ensuring peaceful and rancor-free campaigns before, during and after the 2019 general elections.
Despite the fact that Buhari signed the document, Fayose believes the president is desperate to remain in office and will fail to fulfill his obligations.
The former governor took to his Twitter account on Wednesday, December 12 to accuse the president of turning the Nigeria Police Force and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) into the attack dogs of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to harass the opposition.
A man who has turned all FG agencies, especially EFCC and Police to the attack dogs of APC cannot be said to be interested in any peaceful election just by mere signing of peace accord.

“A man who has turned all FG agencies, especially EFCC and Police to the attack dogs of APC cannot be said to be interested in any peaceful election just by mere signing of peace accord.”
“A man who refused to sign the Amended Electoral Bill 4 times after it was passed by NASS of 469 Nigerians cannot be said to be interested in any peaceful, free and fair election. Therefore, signing of Peace Accord won’t change his desperation to remain in office at all cost.”
He said the president’s failure to sign the electoral amendment bill is more indicative of his attitude towards the general elections than his signing of the peace accord.
