Buhari Is Running Away From Debates And Must Be Rejected Come Feb. 14- PDP

General Muhammadu Buhari has said he will not participate in
the debate organised by the Newspaper Proprietors Association of Nigeria, NPAN,
and Channels Television, after admitting at first that he will. The Peoples
Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, through its spokesperson,
Femi Fani-Kayode, has condemned him and his party, saying they are merely
taking Nigerians for granted and they should be rejected at the polls come February
Buhari has been condemning Jonathan during his presidential campaigns over
insurgents, now he has the opportunity of debating with him, but he Buhari is
now running away, Mr Fani Kayode said. Continue below to read  PDP’s press statement on this.

“We have been informed that General Buhari and the APC have
decided not to participate in the NPAN-CHANNELS Television-organised debate
after they had earlier agreed to take part in it.
“We had thought that having withdrawn from participating in
the debate organised by Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON), they would
have availed themselves this second platform.
“Now that they have also turned their back on this, it is
now very clear that General Buhari is incapable of engaging in rigorous live
television debates on the issues of governance. It speaks about his
intellectual laziness and his loss of touch with contemporary issues of
development and statecraft.
“We would like to reiterate that the APC has something to
shield about General Buhari. He has campaigned in some states of the federation
attacking President Jonathan’s handling of insurgency, corruption and economy.
Now there is a platform on which both candidates can engage each other on these
issues and he (Buhari) is running away.
“It is a disgrace to the APC and their candidate that they
would treat everybody with contempt. The organisers of the debates are
interested in promoting a robust culture of debates so that people can listen
to the candidates and make informed choices on the basis of their arguments.

“We call on Nigerians to express their displeasure with
General Buhari and the APC by rejecting them at the poll. This will be a just
recompense for treating the Nigerian people and electorate with disdain.”
