Peace Committee Chairman, Abdulsalami Abubakar assured Nigerians there will be no interim government

Former military Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, Thursday reassured Nigerians that contrary to fears being expressed in some quarters, there will be no interim government.

He stated that the federal government has assured the National Peace Committee on 2015 Elections that there will no such government.

The former president rather stated that elections will hold as scheduled, adding that the May 29 handover date remains sacrosanct.

Abubakar who is the chairman of the Peace Committee, made up of security Chiefs, party and religious leaders, told journalists during a press conference that with the assurance given by President Goodluck Jonathan, elections will hold.

He further urged party leaders to call their followers to order, warning that the country cannot afford to entertain another violence after the elections.
