Popular media personality, Toke Makinwa is the latest Nigerian to react to the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Abubakar at the Presidential Debate which held on Saturday, January 19th night.
In a statement, Atiku who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had blamed President Muhammadu Buhari’s absence as his reasons for boycotting the debate.
On his part, President Buhari, the candidate of the All Peoples Congress (APC) cited his busy schedule as the reason behind his absence.
In her reaction, Makinwa lamented the decisions of the candidates not to show up for the debate, saying Atiku should have shown up for Nigerians. According to her, Atiku could have just focused and sold his agenda to Nigerians and not get himself bothered about other candidates that refused to show up.

“Atiku could have seen this as an opportunity, focus on your focus, ignore who decides not to show up and show up for Nigerians.”
