The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has declared his readiness to debate from morning till dusk as the 2023 presidential election is fast approaching.
The presidential candidate of the APC disclosed this on Thursday in response to criticisms for avoiding presidential debates in Nigeria.
It would be recalled that while other presidential candidates have availed themselves for debates on ARISE Television programmes and Townhall meetings, the former Governor of Lagos State had, several times, shunned his invites.
There have been speculations that the APC presidential candidate was shying away from the debates because he could not withstand the rigour.
Opposition camps, especially the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had accused Tinubu of avoiding debates because he had nothing to tell Nigerians.
Tinubu, while addressing some young Nigerians in London, said attending a debate was never an issue.
“I am ready to debate with you from morning till nigh, and I’m speaking in London, not in Jigawa. It is great that you are alive to tell the story just giving the assurance never to give up… Broadband creation, energy that you talked about.. if they’ve taken our advice. In the beginning of democracy in 1999, we brought in investment. My Deputy then is here, and then so many other innovative things,” Tinubu stated.
