He further vowed that the “fraudulent” debates would be stopped.
Sowore said, “It has come to our attention that the Nigeria Election Debate Group has excluded us from the series of Presidential Debates to herald 2023 election, as typical they’ve settled for failed and clueless candidates.
“We will ensure these fraudulent debates are stopped!”

The candidates invited to the town hall meeting organised by the CDD in collaboration with Arise Television were Bola Tinubu (All Progressives Congress); Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (Peoples Democratic Party; Peter Obi (Labour Party) and Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso (New Nigeria Peoples Party).
