Why I Refused to Debate With Jonathan – Buhari

The Presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu has said he is not ready to participate in the presidential debate with President Goodluck Jonathan. Because according to him, there is no basis for debate since the record of the PDP and Mr. Jonathan in government is of a public knowledge.

While addressing a media parley in Abuja, Gen Buhari pledged if he wins the March 28 poll, he will uphold strict adherence to the constitution, saying he is now “a converted democrat”.
“I want to assure you that Nigerian constitution will be adhered to,” he said.

He reminded the audience of the controversial Decree 4 published in 1984 while he was military 
Head of State. He said there will be no such controversy should he win the presidential election.
“I cannot change the past but I can change the present and future. Dictatorship goes with the military which made possible decree four. 
“I am a former military leader. Note the emphasis on the word "former". But I am now a converted democrat. 
“I give full assurances to Nigeria media will be free under an APC government,” he said. 
Asked if he was prepared to apologise for jailing journalists as military ruler, the Director General of Mr. Buhari’s campaign and Governor of River State, Rotimi Amaechi, prevented the former general from responding, saying “the general has said he could not change the past”.
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar also graced tha occasion with his presence.
