Atiku absent at Presidential debate

Why Atiku runs away after arriving at Presidential debate venue

The 2019 presidential debate held in abuja, was conducted without the presidential candidate of APC, Buhari and PDP candidate Atiku Abubakar.

While Buhari blames other commitments for his absence, Atiku believes the absence of Buhari is sufficient a reason for to not attend.

In what seems as drama, as the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, changed his mind about participating in the debate after arriving at the venue.

Although he showed up at the venue after his return from the United States, the PDP candidate left without mounting the podium for the debate.

President Muhammadu Buhari, who was also invited did not show up at all, leaving only presidential candidates of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Oby Ezekwesili; Alliance for New Democracy (ANN), Mr Fela Durotoye; All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari; and Young Progressives Party (YPP), Kingsley Moghalu, to debate.

In a series of tweet after his departure, Atiku blamed President Buhari’s absence for his decision to leave.
