The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said President Muhammadu Buhari may or may not attend the Presidential debate slated for Saturday, January 19th.
Speaking in an interview with Daily Independent, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu said the President may choose not to attend the debate if he feels there are viable options with which he can speak with Nigerians.
“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” he said.
