Respected broadcast journalist Kadaria Ahmed appears to have responded to Nigerians who thought she was anti-Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 elections.

Some Nigerian tweeps had questioned the professional qualities of Kadaria during her conversation with Atiku and his running mate, Peter Obi, at a town hall meeting in Abuja, tagged “The Candidates”, which was concluded on Wednesday.

Concise News understands that “The Candidates” was a serious conversational meeting where presidential candidates defended their strategies ahead of Nigeria’s 2019 presidential elections scheduled for February 16.

While some thought the moderator was against the former vice president, others commended her for asking the PDP candidate and his running mate some questions about the economy and anti-corruption war.
And in what seems to be a response to critics, the journalist tweeted a quote, attributed to Nichiren Daishoni, which read: “It is an honour to be despised by fools.”

Kadaria had on Thursday morning sent a “thank you” message to President Muhammadu Buhari of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and Atiku for being part of the town hall meeting.

The ace broadcaster also thanked the vice-presidential candidates of the aforementioned political gladiators, vice-president Yemi Osinbajo, and Peter Obi, for attending the meeting.

She also appreciated Kingsley Moghalu and Umma Getso of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), and Omoyele Sowore and Rabiu Rufai of the African Action Congress Party (AACP) for being part of the conversation.
