Senator Ben Murray Bruce has reacted to the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential debate which was organised Nigeria Elections Debate Group (NEDG) and the Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (BON) today.
Bruce who represents Bayelsa East senatorial district in the senate is not happy that the incumbent president did not make it to the venue of the debate. He revealed that Atiku had to take a 12 hours flight from USA despite how tired he was just for the debate only to realize that Buhari didn’t attend.
What he said:
I was with @atiku in America. The man met Congressmen and Tibor Nagy, the US Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, met the @USChamber. He had no rest. He rushed back to Nigeria, flying for 12 hours. Only to shower and change and head to #2019Debate and find @MBuhari absent
