The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, has said he doesn’t need the endorsement of people who have ruined Nigeria to win the forthcoming election.
The endorsement of presidential flagbearer, Peter Obi by former President Olusegun Obasanjo sparked reactions across rival political camps, with the All Progressives Congress describing it as a ‘worthless’ political move, adding that it would not affect the ambition of its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu. The Peoples Democratic Party also shared a similar view.
On his part, Sowore during an interview he had with Arise TV on Thursday morning said, he preferred the coalition and endorsement of the Nigerian people to that of certain political leaders in the country.
According to him, “I’m interested in alliances. People can endorse without having to denigrate themselves,” Sowore said.
“But, my own point is this: I don’t need the endorsement of people who have ruined Nigeria. I’m very clear about that. The kind of endorsement I want is from the people who decide who their leaders should be.
“People who are on the pasture land of life technically should not be dictating the future of young people, especially since they have done everything possible to destroy,” Sowore added.
