    The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic
    Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is on his way back to
    Nigeria from the United States Naija News can
    authoritatively report.
    A reliable source within the Atiku Abubakar campaign
    confirmed to Naija News that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is
    on his way back to the country ahead of the
    Presidential Debate scheduled for 6pm today, January
    19, 2019 at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.
    A member of the Atiku Abubakar campaign team, Steve
    Oliyide in a phone interview with Naija News reporter
    stated that Mr Abubakar would be available for the
    debate and he would only debate President
    Muhammadu Buhari who is the major contender in the
    presidential race.
    Mr Oliyide said, “we are very much prepared, I can
    assure you that Alhaji Abubakar is on standby, he
    would get to the venue of the debate, but if his
    opponent (Buhari) does not show up then you won’t
    call it a debate any longer, if Buhari fails to show up
    Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would address Nigerians at the
    venue of the debate.”
    When probed further Mr Oliyide stated that if the
    presidency presents Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for
    the debate the Atiku Abubakar team would also make
    its vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi available to
    counter Osinbajo
    Meanwhile there are strong indications that incumbent
    President Buhari would not be available for the debate
    in person, he might be represented by Vice President
    Yemi Osinbajo.
    Naija News recalls that the Social and Mainstream
    media went into frenzy when the news broke two days
    ago that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was in the United
    States where he met with key businessmen and
    politicians.
