The Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) Yele Sowore is protesting what he calls the non-inclusion from the Presidential debate.
The debate will be organized by Broadcasting Organization of Nigeria and the Nigeria Elections Debate Group (NEDG).
Yele Sowore posted this on his Instagram page where he stated that he has been one of the people that ask Nigerians to interview those who seek to lead them in politics.
The protest (according to Sowore) will take place in Lagos at the Channels TV complex Isheri on Thursday 13th December 2018
According to him;
The Presidential debate will feature incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku Abubakar,
At the run up to then 2015 general elections, I did a piece titled 2019 and the Next Generation where I focused on what the next general elections will be about and those who will be the major players and participants in the coming elections. The piece was about bringing our attention to the reality that a new generation of Nigerian leaders will start emerging to take up leadership positions; those who can be regarded as millennials of today.
The administration of President Buhari is 17 months now and there has been progress made in the fight against Boko Haram and their terror and the fight against corruption has been received differently by many people. The issue of economy and matters related to it like inflation, foreign exchange, unemployment are yet to be addressed and this has embittered many against the government. This is not surprising at all because people will always react to situations that cost them their luxury, money, prosperity, hope, food to eat and more. This alone has blinded them to the tough decisions this government has taken since inception.
