While next year’s election, scheduled for February 16, 2019, is expected to be a keenly contested two-horse race between Incumbent President Mohammadu Buhari and the Presidential Candidate of the PDP former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, it has been a season of media battle amongst all the aspiring candidates, with most of them releasing their economic plans and campaign manifestos, with the citizens greatly anticipating the Next Presidential Debate.
The Nigerian Election Debate Group (NEDG) and Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (BON) have announced the dates for 2019 presidential and vice-presidential election debate.
The Chairman of the Nigeria Election Debate Group, Mr John Momoh, told news journalists in Abuja on Thursday that the group had fixed January 19, 2019 for a debate for presidential candidates of different political parties taking part in the 2019 elections.
It’s unclear whether President Buhari will attend the debate as he did not appear for the 2015 debate because “it was deemed to be unnecessary”. In an interview with news correspondents, the spokesman for Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr Festus Keyamo (SAN), said they were yet to decide on whether Buhari would participate in the debate or not. He said once a decision was taken on the matter, it would be made public. “I am not the only one that will take that decision. When that time comes, all those concerned will sit down and take a decision on that and we shall make our decision public,” Keyamo said.
