The Nigeria Elections Debate Group, NEDG, explained , yesterday,  that is was non-partisan and that there was no justification for the All Progressives Congress,  APC, to turn down its invitation to the on-going debate.

The group's Media and Publicity Committee Chairman,  Mr Tony Akiotu said in a statement that the activities of the group were not influenced by its Chairman Mr. Shola Omale,  in spite of.his position as Director - General of the federal government -owned Nigeria Television Anthony.

He said Mr. Omale only happened to be the chairman by virtue of been the Chairman of BON, a position which rotates between the D-G of NTA an Voice of Nigeria,  VON.

According to Mr. Akiotu, the founder of the African Independent Television,  Chief Raymond Dokpesi, also does not influence the group.

He explained further that the group was independent and registered the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC with the Guild of Editors, Nigerian Union of Journalists,  and the Transition Monitoring Group as members, along with the Broadcasting Organization of Nigeria, BON.

The group urged the APC to reconsider it's position,  as the debate provided an opportunity for its presidential candidate to sell himself to the Nigerian electorate.

The next round of debates has been scheduled for tomorrow.
