Obi, Kwankwaso, Others Speak on Security, Economy at CDD Debate

Security and the economy took centre stage as the presidential candidates of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, the New Nigerian Peoples Party, Musa Kwankwaso and Kola Abiola of Peoples Redemption Party squared up at the Arise tv Presidential Town Hall Series on Security and Economy, in Abuja.

However, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party,  Atiku Abubakar and his All Progressives Congress counterpart, Bola Tinubu, failed to show up at the debate organised by Arise TV in collaboration with the  Centre for Development and Democracy at the Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.

Although Atiku was represented by his running mate, Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Tinubu sent no representative.

But the supporters of the LP, the NNPP and the PRP who were unhappy with Atiku’s absence heckled Okowa, stating that the event was meant for presidential candidates only.
