Debate With Chimamanda Not Datti-Ahmed – Atiku Tells Soyinka | #NwokeukwuMascot
Presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the call by Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, to debate with Labour Party, LP, presidential running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed.
Atiku said Prof Soyinka should debate with Chimamanda Adichie not Datti.
On March 22, in an interview, Datti said the country has no president-elect despite the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, announcing Bola Tinubu as the winner of the election.
Datti said Tinubu would be leading an unconstitutional government if sworn into office because the APC candidate “has not met requirements of the law.”
However, speaking through a spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Daniel Bwala, Atiku said Soyinka was not a politician, hence should challenge Chimamanda not Datti.
Tweeting, Bwala wrote: “Am told Prof. Soyinka asked to debate Datti. No, he should ask to debate Chimamanda Adichie.
“Datti is a politician, Soyinka is not, so it will be an unfair debate.
“But both Soyinka and Chimamanda trade on literature and grammar. #Soyinkadebatechimamanda.
“When he tries Chimamanda, he will understand the phrase ‘nobody has the monopoly of knowledge’. It will certainly be the case of David v Goliath.”
