Why Atiku will not participate in presidential debate – Afegbua

  • Why Atiku will not participate in presidential debate – Afegbua

    – The spokesman of Atiku campaign
    organisation, Kassim Afegbua, has given one
    condition for the PDP’s presidential
    candidate to attend the debate
    – Profesor Itse Sagay, the chairman of
    PACAC, was quoted to have said that that
    President Buhari would not debate with
    political dwarfs
    – Afegbua, however, said Atiku would attend
    the debate if President Muhammadu Buhari
    is ready to participate in the debate
    Kassim Afegbua, the spokesman of the
    Atiku Campaign Organisation (AKO), has
    given one condition that would make the
    presidential candidate of the Peoples
    Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar,
    participate in the 2019 presidential
    debate.
    The Sun reports that he said that the PDP
    candidate would only participate if the
    candidate of the All Progressives
    Congress (APC), President Muhammadu
    Buhari, would be available for the
    engagement.
    Legit.ng gathered that Afegbua gave the
    condition in reaction to the statement by
    the chairman of the Presidential
    Advisory Committee Against Corruption
    (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay, that President
    Buhari would not debate with political
    dwarfs.

    He berated Sagay for making such a
    statement, saying the erudite professor
    has become a turncoat academic.
    He said: “When you realised that a
    supposed law professor like Itse Sagay
    now talks with tongue in cheek, you easily
    know that societal values and morality
    have become debased.
    “When you realised that he once taught in
    the University, then the senility of his
    intellect has attained double jeopardy.
    “Itse Sagay has not only become a
    turncoat academic but one whose sight
    invokes pity, sympathy and empathy.
    “can APC presidential candidate who has
    been fighting “battles” with his WASC
    consider others who are duly qualified
    and well read as dwarfs? Does it not
    suggest that something is amiss
    somewhere?
    “Who is actually a dwarf here? Is it a
    presidential candidate running away from
    debate or one who is challenging the other
    to a debate?
    “Didn’t you see them packaging a phoney
    debate for him where he would have
    studied the questions and answers and
    regurgitate them to the best of what would
    have been prepared for him?
    “If the APC presidential candidate is not
    presenting himself for debate, we will not
    allow our presidential candidate to attend
    any debate. But if APC candidate is ready
    to engage our candidate, he is ready and
    prepared for him.”
    Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously
    reported that the presidential campaign
    organisation of the Peoples Democratic
    Party (PDP) replied the federal
    government over the allegation against
    its party’s presidential candidate, Atiku
    Abubakar.
