Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress, has continued to be criticised over his failure to show up at the ARISE Townhall interactive sessions attended by other presidential candidates on Sunday.
Tinubu has been challenged for being unprepared and incapable of withstanding the rigour and the complex nature of the session.
The main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said Tinubu decided to avoid the debates intentionally because he had nothing to tell Nigerians.
However, addressing some young Nigerians in London, Tinubu said the debate was not an issue, adding that he could have debated from morning till night.
He added, “I am ready to debate with you from morning till night… 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, the energy that you talked about.. if they’ve taken our advice.. at the beginning of democracy in 1999, we brought in investment.
“My Deputy then is here.. and then so many other innovative things….,” he said.
