Tinubu Can’t Represent You At Next Week’s Presidential Debate, Atiku Warns Buhar by akinblog: 6:25pm On Jan 07, 2019


Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s handover of the All Progressives Congress’ campaign to the party’s national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has asked the President not to use this as “an excuse” to be absent from the presidential debate.

The presidential debate is organised by the Nigeria Election Debate Group and is slated for January 19, 2019.

President Buhari had, on Monday, handed over his party’s campaign for next month’s elections to Tinubu, saying he did not want to lead the campaign because he did not want governance to suffer because of the elections.

Ordinarily, the President, who is the chairman of the APC Campaign Council, ought to lead his party’s campaign – supported by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Tinubu, who are both the council’s co-chairmen.

However, in an interview, the spokesperson for the Atiku Campaign Organisation, Mr. Segun Sowunmi, said it was sad that whereas other presidential candidates were busy campaigning and wanting to be questioned by the people, President Buhari was boycotting campaign because he had nothing to campaign for.

Sowunmi said the development also showed that the President did not have the rigour it takes to campaign and govern the country.

He said, “President Buhari has only attended one campaign, which was the one held in Uyo (Akwa Ibom State capital). He is pushing people ahead to campaign for him because his chickens have come home to roost.

“It proves what we’ve been trying to say before that Buhari doesn’t have the energy and rigour to campaign.

“If he is giving someone else the task of leading his campaign, he could have as well given his presidential ticket to someone who has the energy.

“He should not use this as an excuse to be absent from the presidential debate.

“Nigerians want someone they can question and someone who is willing to listen to them. So, he (Buhari) should take charge of his own campaign.”

Sowunmi said boycotting campaign was the same thing as boycotting governance, asking President Buhari to take up his responsibility.

“His excuse that he doesn’t want governance to suffer is not tenable. In the United States, United Kingdom, France and other great countries, campaign is part of governance because it is an avenue to interact with your people. Hence, Buhari should not hand over his campaign to someone else.

“In the first place, if he had organised the system to be running smoothly, he would not have given this excuse,” Sowunmi added.

They are really angry that Tinubu is now in charge of Buhari’s campaign. They wail over everything and this is not an exception. In the next few days, they will move from attacking Amina Zakari and Amaechi to Tinubu. Any silly attack that will keep their floundering campaign in the news is good.

When the main opposition party abandons its core campaign message and concentrate on trolling APC leaders, then you know they’ve finally run out of ideas and message. It’s game over for Atiku and PDP already and they know it.

So its just a 2-3hr campaign that will make the nations leadership to suffer. APC and their illiterate candidate should come up with a better excuse. Talking about fielding tinubu is like telling your wife, your manhood is active, but u want your friend to impregnate her

Before now, when two elephants fight, it was the grass that suffer but now it is Onitsha goat sellers that suffer.

To that Onitsha goat seller who could not sell his goods due to the prevailing bad economy, I say to you that I care. You and all Nigerians are my business. You are my priority. Join me and #LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain and I assure you that next Sallah will be better.”

Debate or no debate.

His supporters are people with very low IQ.

Even if he flops at the debate, they will still make excuse for him.

Its safe to say that an average Nigerian is under mental slavery.

They have been programmed to always make wrong choices.

The youths are just talks and no action including me.

They campaign worse than Buhari and Atiku.

Amaechi has it it all. Throwing Buhari out will greatly appeal many Nigerians home and abroad.

There is no politics about it.
