#2019Debate: Atiku Abubakar arrives venue for the 2019 #Presidentialdebate, Pulls out due to Buhari’s absence


Abubakar, arrived the venue for the 2019 #Presidentialdebate but pulled out last minute. In a statement he released some minutes ago, says he pulled out of the debate because of President Buhari’s absence which he described as a slight on other candidates present for the debate.


Read his statement below

I arrived the Congress Hall of the Hilton venue of the #2019Debate. This debate and the election is a referendum on the incumbent.

We came here for a Presidential debate, not a candidacy debate, and I, Abubakar can not challenge or question an administration where the man at the helm of the affairs of the nation is not present to defend himself or his policies. After all you cannot shave a man’s head in his absence. I do not believe in attacking a man who is NOT here to defend himself. As a leader and former vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, let me first apologise to all Nigerians, my fellow candidates and the moderator for the the Presidential Candidates absence in this debate. His non-appearance is a slight on ALL of us and our democracy.

Secondly, with all due respect to my fellow candidates, Fela Durotoye, , Kingsley Moghalu and to the moderator Mark Sugar and with apologies to all Nigerians here and at home expecting an interesting debate, I regret that I will not be able to go on with this debate due to President Buhari’s absence.

I however challenge President Buhari to choose a date and time for a debate where he will be present and I will be there, hopefully with the other candidates as well.

Thank you and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
