The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) Omoyele Sowore has said that Party(LP), candidate Peter Obi doesn’t have what it takes to become the next President.
According to Sowore, LP has become an orphanage for displaced politicians.
Speaking in his verified Twitter handle, Obi had said he was headed for Egypt for what he described as a comparative study of economy and education, among others.
He wrote: “I just departed for Egypt on a three-day visit as part of my detailed study of comparative countries to Nigeria. In Egypt I’m expected to understudy, among others, the Egyptian power sector, education, planning and finance sector.”
Reacting, Sowore, said that the LP presidential candidate’s trip on his Twitter handle, said the visit was a manifestation of Obi’s lack of preparedness and experience to govern Nigeria..
He wrote: “Heard that Peter Obi travelled to Egypt to learn on how to fix Education/Power problems. This is exactly the problem with unprepared candidates. It’s nine months to the election and a two-term governor and former vice presidential candidate wants to go and learn something from Egypt in three days. Wow!”
Sowore also called in members of LP and supporters of Peter Obi to join the AAC, saying the former has no structure to win an election.
He said: “The Labour Party has become an orphanage for politicians that are homeless. It didn’t take long before our man ran there when he became homeless.
“The Labour Party should not have in its company somebody who managed 13 months of workers’ strike in Anambra state.
“The reason Obi left PDP was that they outplayed him with transactional politicking. Where is the structure of the Labour Party? You should ask yourself.
“In 2019, the Labour Party presidential candidate got 5,000 votes. I was allocated 33,000 votes. So even if you want to look at the structure, a structure that delivered 33,000 votes is probably bigger and better than that of 5,000 votes.
“The Labour Party and the Peter Obi people should come and join us. We are the ones who know how to stand up for you.
“You said you were a governor of Anambra state. When you were a governor, did you build schools, and universities that your children could attend? Did you build hospitals in that state where you can go for treatment if you fall sick? Did you do quality roads? If it is no, why are you lying?
“I am not here to do ethnic politics, I’m not here to do religious politics. I’m here for the liberation of the Nigerian people.”
