The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu has listed four conditions before he would engage Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in a debate.

The conditions of Bola Tinubu also serve as a precondition for his attendance at a town hall meeting organised by Arise Television.

The former governor of Lagos state spoke through the spokesperson of the APC presidential campaign council (PCC), Festus Keyamo on Tuesday, November 29.

The demands are listed below:

- Tinubu said he would only attend a debate with Peter Obi of the Labour Party if the former Anambra governor could only present his manifesto to the Nigerian public for scrutiny.

- Keyamo also asked the Obi to list his achievement when he was the governor of Anambra state before any debate can hold.

- The APC also demanded that the Labour Party flagbearer should name any political party he had formed as a politician.

- Tinubu, through the spokesperson of the PCC then demanded that Obi should name his political mentees and let Nigerians know if they are still with him.
