The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has challenged the incumbent and Presidential Candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr Mohammadu Buhari to a debate with focus on salvaging the moribund critical sectors of the country.
The call was contained in press release made available to Thebreakingtimes.com and signed by the PDP national publicity secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan.
The leading opposition party also condemned the seeming silence and lackadaisical attitude of the Federal Government in handling of troops fighting Boko haram, which has continuously led to their avoidable deaths.
The statement reads in part, “Mr. President should explain why he has been insensitive to the killing of citizens and soldiers by marauders and insurgents, particularly, given allegations that he has been distracting the Armed forces by dragging them to participate in his re-election campaign.
Insisting on a debate, the party said, “President Buhari must be ready to face the over 40 million Nigerians who lost their jobs and millions more whose businesses have folded up due to his incompetence and harsh economic policies. He must face the victims of human rights violations, extra-judicial killings, illegal arrests and arbitrary detention under his administration.
“President Buhari should be ready to face his failures and avail Nigerians of his sectoral performance scorecards, as well as, present his future blueprint, if any, to enable the electorate weigh him alongside our Presidential candidate.
