Nigerians on social media have condemned the decision of the presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress, President Muhammadu Buhari and that of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar not to participate in the ongoing presidential debate organised by the Nigeria Elections Debate Group and the Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria.

APC’s Buhari and PDP’s Atiku Abubakar were both absent from the debate.

Present at the debate were the presidential candidates of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, Oby Ezekwesili; Alliance for New Nigeria, Fela Durotoye; Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar; and Young Progressives Party, Kingsley Moghalu.

Explaining the reason for not participating in the debate, Atiku blamed the absence of Buhari, saying it was unfair to attack a man, who was not present to defend himself.

His decision to walk out on the debate as well as Buhari’s absence has led to lots of reactions from Twitter users.

Most Twitter users blasted the duo for disrespecting the electorate, while some believed that Atiku could have taken advantage of Buhari’s absence to shine at the debate.
