2019 presidency: Why Buhari may not attend presidential debate – APC



The Progressives Congress, APC, has said that its presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, may not be availabe at the much anticipated presidential debate.

The party said Buhari may choose not to attend the 2019 presidential debate scheduled for Saturday January 19th if he feels there are other better options with which he can speak to Nigerians.

The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Lanre Issa-Onilu, told Independent that the APC will look at several options through which President Buhari will engage Nigerians.

He pointed out that there was no big deal if the party believes debate is not one of such means.

He said, “What is special about presidential debate? Presidential debate is one of the several platforms for presidential candidates to engage with the public. 
“As a party, we will look at all the options and pick the ones that we can accommodate and those that will be impactful and effective in achieving our goals. 
“We will be the ones to determine that. If presidential debate happens to be one of that, fine.
“If it wasn’t, then it is no big deal. There is nothing special about any debate. It is just one of the several platforms to engage the electorate.”
