The peculiar dynamism of these contesting candidates place a significance importance signing a peace pact which is a common practice between contesting candidates prior to going into the elections, this bring together all candidates of all parties signed the accord, and promise the country, populace and INEC they will surely follow a peace pact which was held on Tuesday 6th of October 2020.
After signing the peace pact, it's time to rob elbows and shoulders withe fellow contestants, but governor Rotimi Akeredolu decided not to rob shoulders or elbow with his elstwhile deputy governor, rather waving him from a far, despite shaking and hugging all other contestant.
