Tinubu announces boycott of all Presidential debates; Says why he shunned Arise TV

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu

Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 General elections in Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has announced that he will be boycotting all Presidential debates by radio and television stations in the build-up to the polls.

This decision was contained in a letter signed and released by Spokesperson of the APC Presidential Campaign Council Festus Keyamo on Monday, November 7, 2022 following his absence from the ARISE TV Presidential debates held on Sunday November 6, 2022.

In the statement, the APC Presidential Candidate based his decision on the hectic campaign schedule and his desire to avoid selective appearances on some networks as against his plan to treat all groups equally.

At the ARISE TV Presidential town hall meeting on Sunday, Nigerians had the opportunity to hear from Presidential Candidates of the Labour Party Mr. Peter Obi, New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) Candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso and Kola Abiola of the PRP while the PDP Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was represented by his Vice Presidential Candidate, Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa.

While the decision will certainly generate reactions from various Nigerian interest groups and opinion moulders, the APC candidate in the statement announced that he preferred the ‘direct ‘ mode of communication with Nigerians.
