The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has asked President Muhammadu Buhari not to send a proxy for the upcoming presidential debate.

According to DAILY POST, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the organisation, Chuks Ibegbu, said Buhari must appear and speak for himself.
This was following Buhari’s announcement that a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu was in charge of his reelection campaign.
Buhari had announced this last week Monday while inaugurating the APC Presidential Council, at the International Conference Centre, ICC, in Abuja.
The National Publicity Secretary of APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, had also disclosed that Buhari may not attend the debate if he feels there are other viable options with which he can engage Nigerians.
However, reacting, Ibegbu said that if Buhari does not show for the debate, then “he has no moral right to lead us”.
He said: “We can’t preempt anything because we are not part of Buhari’s programme but he has a moral duty to talk to his people on why he wants to rule for another four years.
“He has to come and talk to Nigerians on what he has done in the past four years and what he intends to do in the next four years, he can’t do it by proxy.
“If he doesn’t talk to Nigerians then he has no moral right to lead us. Tinubu or no Tinubu he must tell Nigerians in person what he has done in the last three and half years and it must not be by proxy.”
