For Refusal To Participate In Presidential Debates’, PDP Calls Nigerians To Vote Against Buhari



The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization has called on Nigerians to vote against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, over his refusal to participate in live radio and television debates organised for presidential candidates.

This was contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by the Director of Publicity of the Campaign team, Femi Fani-Kayode, said, “Buhari’s contempt for debates and their organisers is despicable.” He added that the PDPPCO condemned the contempt the Buhari had for Nigerians by his refusal to participate in live television debates with President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to Fani-Kayode, Buhari’s decision to shun another debate organised by the Newspaper Proprietors Association of Nigeria (NPAN) and Channels Television was despicable and, therefore, Nigerians should vote against him during the elections as pay back for his action.

“We have been informed that General Buhari and the APC have decided not to participate in the NPAN-CHANNELS Television-organised debate after they had earlier agreed to take part in it.

“We had thought that having withdrawn from participating in the debate organised by Broadcasting Orgnaisation of Nigeria (BON), they would have availed themselves this second platform.

“Now that they have also turned their back on this, it is now very clear that General Buhari is incapable of engaging in rigorous live television debates on the issues of governance. It speaks of his intellectual laziness and his loss of touch with contemporary issues of development and statecraft,” the Campaign team said.
