Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) has condemned the presidential manifestos of the President Muhammadu Buhari and the main opposition, Atiku Abubakar for the 2019 election.

COSON Chairman, Tony Okoroji gave this reaction following the #NextLevelNG manifesto of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the #TheAtikuPlan manifesto of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
