The ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, has said President Buhari doesn’t need to debate, stating that his achievements will speak for him.
This was made known in a Tweet by the official twitter page of the APC.
The Tweet read;
For President Buhari, he doesn’t have to debate, his achievements for 3.5 years will do the talk for him. In SW; Lag-Ibadan Rail, Lag-Abeokuta road, in SS & SE; Maritime University and 2nd Niger Bridge, in NE; Security, in NW; ABJ-KD-KN expressways, in NC; Baro Port and many more.
Buhari had said he could not attend the 2019 Debate organised for Presidential Candidates on Saturday night because the event clashed with his other major activities.
The Spokesperson for the Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress, Festus Keyamo, stated this in a statement on Sunday night.
The statement said,
“Firstly, out of several opportunities afforded our candidate to interact with the Nigerian people directly by different organisations, our presidential candidate has taken full advantage of another town-hall meeting organised by another group which held on Wednesday, January 16, 2019.
“He was also joined at that town-hall meeting by our Vice-Presidential candidate who is also the Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN.
“Nigerians from all walks of life who were physically present and through online platforms asked uncensored questions which were adequately answered. It was also transmitted live by various broadcast networks in Nigeria.
“In addition, the busy and hectic official and campaign schedules of Mr. President clashed with this programme. Today, Mr. President commissioned the Baro Inland Water Port in Niger State and campaigned in Niger and Plateau States where his time was over-stretched by the tumultuous and mammoth crowds in both States, (as seen by Nigerians on live television) and only returned to Abuja late this evening.
