But maintaining his calm, Okowa reached out to the audience, saying the presidential ticket is one, but the aggrieved youth thundered, “No!!!”

Despite pleading to the crowd and the assurance that their complaints had been heard, the participants started chanting songs from the backstage saying, “all we are saying, Okowa must come down….”

Another participant said, “We need only presidential candidates. If they are not ready, they should just go. Vice presidential candidates should wait for their own series.”

Also, another participant said, “The whole world is watching. We have to do things differently.It is an insult to us. Even the Chairman of ARISE will not continue with the program, if not, everyone will go out. This is our last chance to save Nigeria

“If Atiku cannot make it, they should postpone it.”

However, normalcy was later restored and the programme kicked off behind schedule.

After calm was restored and the presidential debate started 45mins after it was scheduled to start, Okowa said:

“Atiku Abubakar duly obtained permission from the organisers of the town hall meeting for him to be represented and that permission was duly given. Atiku Abubakar is outside the country and he has asked me to represent him.

“I think that answers the question to earlier concerns raised. This is just a town hall meeting not the actual debate.”
