A group, Door to Door Campaign for Buhari/Ganduje 2019 has urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to shy away from the presidential debate that has drawn him with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
The Nigerian Election Debate group alongside the Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria (BON) had announced a debate for all presidential candidates of different political parties coming up January 19th, 2019.
The National Chairman of the campaign organization Engr. Atiku Ahmad Dongurawa, who spoke to reporters, said that president Buhari’s credential speaks volume of his laudable achievements in many areas of human endeavors, to stand any public debate with opposition parties.
According to him, “There is no reason why president Buhari should shy away from the presidential debate looking at the period when the government came to power, there are so many projects and programs that were executed by this government, even the Nigerian citizens, will bear witness. Also there is no justification that will hinder president Buhari coming out for the debate, because the president has many things to tell Nigerians that will convince the electorate to re-elect this government back to power”.
Ahmad noted that Buhari had made tremendous achievements in areas that stood tall and above the 16 years records of the PDP administration, adding that there was no basis for comparism between Buhari and Atiku.
The group said that upcoming campaigns by the party would be issues based.
