December 14, 2018 has been fixed for the presidential debate by the Nigerian Election Debate Group. This will enable candidates of political parties sell themselves and unveil their plans for the country if elected.
Mr John Momoh, the group’s chairman disclosed this in a press conference in Abuja on Thursday. He also noted that the debate for vice presidential candidates will hold on Jan 19, 2019.
Momoh also disclosed that the debates would hold at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja and would be broadcast live from all Broadcast Organisation of Nigeria (BON) member stations; an organisation he also doubles as the Chairman.
Hopefully candidates of the two main political parties President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive Congress; and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party will be available for the interview.
The vice presidential candidates of the major parties are Prof Yemi Osinbajo of the All Progressive Congress and Mr Peter Obi of the People’s Democratic Party.
It is unclear if the interview is open to all candidates or just a select few of the contestants, but what is however certain is that the public would love to see the major contenders slug it out, as the race most definitely is between the two political parties.
