The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, believes that Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) is not the “appropriate candidate” for Nigeria.
In a Channels Television interview on Friday, Sowore asserted that the former Anambra State governor is part of the “old system” he has consistently decried.
Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, is presently enjoying growing popularity, particularly on social media.
The AAC presidential candidate argued that Obi is not his kind of “progressive” politician while claiming that the LP candidate did not implement any projects while serving as the governor of Anambra.
“Why would I see Peter Obi as a threat? Peter Obi is part of the old system that I have always fought,” he said.
“I understand where he is coming from. This is 1999 repeated; Nigeria wants change. Some young people who are genuinely interested in change are presented with somebody who works for the establishment; someone who was in PDP, APGA, came back to PDP and then LP. He is not new to a rotten system — somebody who spent eight years as governor of a state.
“You can be emotional about it but that is the truth. He did not build any school, industry and power station. He is not my kind of progressive.
“Anybody who has been in government for eight years that has nothing to show for it is not my right candidate for Nigeria.”
