The debate will majorly center around the contentious issue of which system of government between Parliamentary or Presidential is best for the country and the Building Bridges Initiative, in what is expected to be a showdown given the two fiery guests represent either side of the proverbial coin.
its been a good run with @HusseinMohamedg . From the bottom of my heart we learnt a lot from you on air and having worked together at Royal media services. May the good Lord protect you. You are simply the best. #Newsnight
