He’s Afraid Of Being Exposed – Atiku/Okowa Camp Give Reason For Tinubu’s Absence From Presidential Debate

Following Tinubu’s absence from the Arise TV debate for presidential candidates, a lot of speculations have been flying around as to why the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu missed the debate and did not send a representative.

Recall that Thav Media had earlier reported that Arise TV had hosted a presidential town hall meeting on Sunday night 6th November 2022, in Abuja, which saw Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi in attendance and Ifeanyi Okowa, the running mate of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP), presidential candidate, representing Atiku Abubakar.

However, the camp of the PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has suggested why the APC presidential candidate is avoiding national debate; the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation said Tinubu was avoiding national debates over the fear of probing questions from Nigerians.


Kola Ologbondiyan, the spokesperson of the campaign organization, said Tinubu is afraid Nigerians might interrogate him over his alleged corruption record, reported proxy treasury looting, obvious incompetence, and ethnic bigotry.

According to Ologbondiyan: “Tinubu is also aware that he cannot face the public to answer questions bordering on his past, particularly, the question on his ancestry, the Alpha-Beta tax saga; as well as his alleged stranglehold on the business, politics, and lives of Lagosians from 1999 till date.”

“He is afraid of being exposed of fleecing Lagos State for eight years through multiple and harsh tax regimes with nothing to show other than rulership by the brawl, breeding of touts, and raising criminal street gangs, only to turn around now to attempt to claim the achievements of succeeding governors as his.”

“Is it not strange that Tinubu, who claims to be a progressive, is dodging debate, a hallmark of progressivism?”

Speaking on his absence, Tinubu said he was busy with other engagements; hence could not appear for the debate.
