– The ruling party, APC in a new statement disclosed that President Buhari has no reason to participate in the recent 2019 Presidential Debate
– The Ruling Party added that the President has a lot speaking for him instead of participating in a presidential debate
Pres. Muhammadu Buhari having missed the 2019 Presidential Debate disclosed that he was absent from the program because of his busy schedule.
However, the ruling Party, All Progressive Congress APC in a new statement have declared that the President doesn’t need to participate in the debate.
According to the APC via their spokeperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu, he made it known that the presidential debate missed by President Muhammadu Buhari was only important to those seeking power.
“The president does not have to give reason for now attending that debate,” he said.
“Let me reiterate like I have said earlier, the debate is just one of several platforms for our candidate to engage with the public. We pick the platforms that are impactful and we are the one to determine which one we want to use.
The statement read that it was an insult for the president to participate in the debate.
“Debate with who? That’s an insult. That the president will come and debate with who? The debate the president is having is what he did in Niger state – [Niger people] can look to a brighter future. The people of this country, everywhere they go they see development, they can see projects going on. So these are the debates that the president is already engaging with the public.
“That particular debate could be important and I think it is important to those seeking power not somebody who has has a lot speaking for him already.”
