Rabiu Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate for the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), criticized Bola Tinubu, the candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), for skipping the presidential debate organized by Arise TV in Abuja.
Kwankwaso argued that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, the PDP’s presidential running mate, was superior than Tinubu.
At the discussion held on Sunday in Abuja by Arise TV and the Centre for Development and Democracy, CDD, Okowa represented PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar.

While Tinubu did not attend the event or send a delegate, Atiku, who was not present, did.
Speaking at the event, Kwankwaso remarked that some presidential candidates may need their running mates to represent them at events due to their hectic schedules.
No candidate can boast that they will attend every one, says Kwankwaso.
“Any group hosting this kind of event should accept it.
“I believe the man here (indicating Okowa) is superior to the person who did not send a representative,” the speaker said.
