(VIDEO) Sowore Blows Hot Over Obasanjo’s Endorsement of Obi

Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has faulted ex president, Obasanjo for Endorsing Peter Obi.

According to Sowore, he would reject any attempt from former president Olusegun Obasanjo to endorse him in respect of the forthcoming 2023 election because the former Nigerian leader’s tenure was replete with barbarity.

In a video shared across his social media pages and obtained by Overtnews on Tuesday, the media entrepreneur said although he is “very desperate” for the liberation of Nigerians, his desperation does not extend to seeking endorsements from “the enemies of our people”.

His message reads in part;

“Of course, I want to win as the president of Nigeria. But it’s not about my ambition; it’s about the poor people of Nigeria, hovering around in pain and anguish, in their hundreds, millions, sleeping in agony over insecurities, hunger, and starvation.

“Of course, I need plenty of endorsements, but I won’t be able to take that of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo who had over 12 years as president but have nothing but barbarism to show for it.

“What will I tell the people of Odi and Zaki Biam? That the rogue that massacred them is now my mentor?

“Or what will I tell the memories of journalist Dele Giwa? That the drug dealer known as ‘Maradona’, is now one of my godfathers? Mba (meaning no), my people!

“I’d rather be endorsed by the very masses who have no billions of Naira, but are in their millions. I’d rather be endorsed by the oppressed who bear the brunt of this vulcaniser economy that we have today, that has been imposed on our people, that has brought untold hardship and poverty.
