2023: Tinubu lists conditions for open debate with Peter Obi
The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has listed four conditions his counterpart from the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, must meet before engaging in a debate with him.
Tinubu said he would engage Obi in a debate after he released his manifesto for Nigerians to scrutinize.
Speaking through the spokesman of his campaign team, Festus Keyamo, Tinubu said the second thing Obi should do is to list his achievements during his tenure as governor of Anambra State before any debate can hold.
Keyamo said Obi should further name any political party he formed and also disclose those he had mentored in politics who are still with him before asking for a debate.

Ahmed Umar, the Director, Currency Operations of CBN clarified this at a three-day workshop organised by the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), for members of the Financial Correspondents Association of Nigeria (FICAN) and Business Editors.
Umar who spoke on the topic, “Redesign of the Naira: Benefits to the financial system and the Nigerian economy”, said the apex bank was not carrying out note restructuring.
“We are not introducing any new note because there was noise, some people have seen one N5000 note that we don’t know about,” he said.
