CONFIRMED: Buhari Will Not Attend Live Presidential Debate With Atiku by youngies(m): 4:41pm On Jan 08, 2019
Barring a last-minute change of mind, THE WHISTLER can authoritatively report that President Muhammadu Buhari will not take part in the presidential debate slated for January 19, 2019 by the Nigeria Election Debate Group.

The debates series, which started on December 14, 2018 with vice presidential candidates, is broadcast live by all member stations of the Broadcasting Organization of Nigeria (BON), organizers of the event.

John Momoh, Chairman of BON, had said the Presidential debates was slated for January 19th and would focus on the nation’s economy, electricity, job creation, health care, education and security, among others.

Although Buhari, who is the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) is yet to make any formal announcement of his decision on the debate, sources close to the Presidency disclosed to THE WHISTLER that Buhari would not attend the live debate.

The sources did not give any reasons for the President’s decision but hinted that his handlers may have reached the decision not to put him on any live telecast so close to the election.

According to them, if there are negative fallouts from the debates, there may not be enough time to “write the wrongs”.

The president’s handlers are said to favour a recorded interview that gives the president the opportunity to speak on all issues and also insulate him from any off-the-cuff gaffe that may come with a live telecast.

“This is campaign season and any little mistake , the opposition will capitalize,” stated a top campaign official of the ruling party.

If this is true, I am not surprised.
Buhari's Strategists will do everything they can to stop him from embarassing himself on national tv
even the debate he did with himself on Arise Tv, he failed. just imagine what will happen if he comes back to debate with Atiku and other presidential aspirants,
That will be the BEGINNING of the END for him.

Buhari absconds at the mention of a Presidential media chat, talk more of a Presidential debate.

Don't think anyone expects the dullard to turn up on debate day.

The dullard is just not an option.

It is people who don't have a bond with the people at the grassroots that hope on debate to help their popularity. Media popularity and debate don't win elections. Trump was always embarrasing himself and insulting people during debates all through the primaries to the main election and polls always rated him low but he knew he had the real voters behind him who were giving him victory from start to finish. Obiano didn't win Anambra election debate but the person whom the media gave victory in that debate couldn't even win his own local government during the election! cool

Election is won on the streets. Atiku should get serious and try to create a real bond with the people because as it stands now, he can't even win his own Adamawa state.

Buhari is running for election but he won't campaign, he won't debate. Even primary schoolchildren running for class prefect sell themselves. Tinubu and the mafia zombie cabal expect Nigerians to vote for an incapable man.

IT WILL NOT HAPPEN.

Is it not someone who knows what he wants to do that will debate? Buhari does not know anything except to shout corruption. Ask him how will he unite Nigerians.....he will tell you corruption? How will he provide job? He will reply it is corruption.... Any question thrown at him must be answered with corruption.


By the way, MANNABBQGRILLS has gone to hustle to grill BBQ....when he comes back by 10pm, he will start shouting "sad baba we know". I thought people saying BMC crew are being paid were only joking...but after I monitored MANNABBQGRILLS I realised he is one of the BMC making noise on nairaland. His shift period on nairaland is 10pm of a day to 1pm of the next day

Stop deceiving yourself. If Atiku doesn't win Adamawa state, don't come up with flimsy excuses.

I want to answer you for mentioning trump. Trump attended debate and presented to American people his vision and how he wants to lead them. My own is let him attend and give us the his roadmap on how he is going to lead us. Thank you.
