Oby Ezekwesili Dares Buhari to Debate

Presidential hopeful, Obiageli Ezekwesili, has called for a televised presidential debate with President Muhammadu Buhari and other party flag bearers participating in the lead up to the February 2019 elections.
Ezekwesili, who is running on the platform of Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, said it is imperative that all candidates vying for the nation’s highest political position take part in debates to present their plans and policy thrust to the people.
She went on to call on all Nigerians to say no to debates by proxy, adding that those who refuse to present themselves before the people do not deserve to lead them.
According to the former Minister of Education and Solid Minerals, President Buhari should be bold enough to face the Nigerian people and present his plans and track record of achievements or lack thereof.
She said in a statement on Sunday: “It appears that there is a conspiracy of the minority to trivialize the issue of presidential debate in a bid to exempt President Muhammadu Buhari from defending his performance and presenting his plans before the Nigerian people. “This is unacceptable. “The people need to know why they should vote for each of the candidates, and they need to know now.”
