Okorie stated that the debate,
which had become a norm in most advanced countries was a welcome development in
Nigeria’s budding democracy and shouldn’t be ignored by any candidate.
“My Vice Presidential candidate,
Barrister Bello Umar (SAN) and I are ready for the debate. I urge my
compatriot, General Buhari, to reject his advisors’ voices and show up for the
debate. That is what the nation and the international community expect of
him”, the statement said.
