Sowore: I can’t be part of a mega fraud   

By Valentine Amanze

The African Action Congress (AAC) presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, Mr. Omoyele Sowore, has dismissed any possibility of merging with political heavyweights like Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi and others to unseat President Bola Tinubu and his All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2027 election.

Sowore also described the proposed mega party as fraud, stressing, “I can’t be part of a mega fraud.”

Sowore, who made the declaration in   Pulse Nigeria on Sunday June 9, 2024, carpeted the Nigeria’s ruling class for their alleged selfishness.

The publisher of the online news outfit, Sahara Reporters, also lambasted the ruling class its relentless efforts to undermine the goodwill of other genuine candidates in its unquenchable thirst for power.

Sowore said that his political ideology was unigue and differed from the All Progressives Congress (APC), People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP) and others.

“I’m one of the first partisan politicians, who has put his ideology in writing, and I have a website and social media handles where I espouse this ideology.

“I speak openly on YouTube videos explaining where I stand, and they are not in any way related to APC or PDP.

“When the other political candidates were scrabbling to remove fuel subsidies, I was opposed to it and to increment in tariffs.

“I support the minimum wage, but I call it a living wage. In 2018, I said it was ₦100,000, and people were mocking me, and now I’ve been vindicated. So, I’m blatantly welfarist. I support the welfare of the public, the Nigerian people, from the standpoint of a socialist democrat. So I lean towards socialism, that whatever is the people’s wealth should go directly to them.”
