Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Pastor Reno Omokri has begged President Muhammadu Buhari not to boycott the presidential debate.
According to Omokri, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar is ready to battle Buhari in a debate anywhere he (Buhari) wishes, be it in his home town Daura, Sudan or Aso Rock.
Omokri further pleaded with President Buhari not to stay away from the debate by sending his vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo to represent him.
Omokri in a tweet on Friday, said that Atiku had informed him that he was ready to debate with Buhari.
He said, “February 16 is not yet here, yet the @OfficialAPCNg has already begun rigging.
“How can anyone who watched that debate say @ProfOsinbajo won it? @PeterObi won hands down.
“Anyway, @MBuhari #DontDodge The Debate.
“@Atiku will do to you, what Obi did to Osinbajo. Dear President @MBuhari, Please #DontDodgeTheDebate.
“@Atiku Abubakar has told me that he is ready to debate you at any location you choose, including @AsoRock, Daura and Sudan.
“Please RETWEET if you want President Buhari to debate on January 19. LIKE if you don’t. We reject @NGRPresident’s plan for @ProfOsinbajo to represent @MBuhari in the debate.
“Buhari is the candidate. Nigerians demand that he debate @Atiku who is ready to debate him ANYWHERE be it @AsoRock, Daura or Sudan. RETWEET if you agree. LIKE if you don’t #DontDodgeTheDebate.”
