The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has claimed his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi, is part of the old system.
Sowore stated this while speaking on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’, Friday night.
He said, “Peter Obi is part of the old system that I’ve always fought against. I understand where he is coming from.
“This is 1999 repeating itself – Nigerians want change, some young people are genuinely interested in change to a different direction, and then they are presented with somebody who worked for the establishment; somebody who has been in the Peoples Democratic Party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, came back to the PDP, and now in the Labour Party. We can be emotional about it but that’s the truth.
“He’s not new to the rotten system. Somebody who was Anambra’s governor for eight years. He didn’t build any schools, he didn’t build any industry, he didn’t build a power station. He’s not my kind of progressive.”
