2019 presidential debate: Jonathan’s ex-aide, Omokri attacks Buhari, commends Atiku

Reno Omokri, former aide of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari for refusing to attend the ongoing presidential debate.

Omokri slammed Buhari ‘chickening’ out of the debate.

He, however, commended the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, for arriving the venue despite his trip from the United States, US.

Abubakar had walked away from the debate after learning that Buhari, who is the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, won’t be attending.

In a tweet, Omokri wrote: “Atiku flew for 12 hours after a gruelling but rewarding trip to the US.

“He arrived the Congress Hall of Transcorp Hilton only to discover that @MBuhari wasn’t there. He is there physically and ready to take part in #2019Debate, but participating won’t make sense if PMB chickened out.”
