Clinton was scheduled to visit the capital, Abuja, this week alongside Baroness Patricia Scotland, the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth.

President Buhari, Atiku, and other presidential candidates had earlier signed the first part of the peace accord in December past year.

Clinton will speak later this week with President Muhammadu Buhari, who is standing for re-election, and his main challenger, Atiku Abubakar, his spokesman said.

The public pelting and jeering at Muhammadu Buhari and his APC during his election campaign rally in Abeokuta, Ogun state, is a direct response by Nigerians to his 4 years misrule as depicted in the expansion of poverty, corruption, divisiveness anf bloodletting in our nation, the statement read.

Akinfasae also appealed to all Ekiti indigenes and residents to vote ‎massively for all the candidates of the party in the forthcoming general elections.
