The former media aide to the erstwhile President Goodluck Jonathan, and best-selling author, Pastor Reno Omokri has urged Nigerians to demand that President Mohammadu Buhari participates in the presidential debate coming on January 19.

The trained lawyer made this known on Friday via his verified Twitter account. In a series of tweets, he challenged President Buhari not to,’Dodge the debate,’ stating that the Peoples Democratic Party’s Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is ready to debate with President Buhari, the presidential candidate for  the All progressives Congress (APC) in any location, the latter chooses, including Aso Rock, Daura, and Sudan.

Pastor Omokri equally pointed out that the All Progressives Congress has already begun rigging prior to the elections by their supposed victory at the vice presidential debate which had Professor Yemi Osibanjo, Dr Peter Obi of the Peoples Democratic Party, and a few other candidates.

The following include Pastor Reno Omokri’s tweets:


Dear President , Please . Abubakar has told me that he is ready to debate you at any location you choose, including , Daura and Sudan. Please RETWEET if you want President Buhari to debate on January 19. LIKE if you don’t.

February 16 is not yet here, yet the has already begun rigging. How can anyone who watched that debate say won it? won hands down. Anyway, . will do to you, what Obi did to Osinbajo.


We reject ’s plan for to represent in the debate. Buhari is the candidate. Nigerians demand that he debate who is ready to debate him ANYWHERE be it , Daura or Sudan.
