Sowore Berates Peter Obi

The activist spoke on Friday in an interview on Channels Television when being asked if he feel threatened by the popularity of the former Anambra governor who is currently witnessing growing support, especially on social media.

Sowore said Obi is not a threat to his 2023 ambition because he is part of the “old system” that he has always criticised and he “is not the change Nigerians need.”

The AAC presidential candidate added that Obi is not his kind of “progressive” politician because he did not execute any project during his tenure as Anambra governor.

He said, “Why would I see Peter Obi as a threat? Peter Obi is part of the old system that I have always fought. 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.”

Asked why he is being perceived as “harsh” towards Obi’s supporters, Sowore said he only spoke against the harassment of people who are not supporting the LP candidate.

He said,  “My first intervention that was considered harsh was Reno Omokri — someone who has done everything in this world to lie against me.

“But when it comes to his fundamental rights, and he has a one-year-old daughter who he said was genuinely threatened, I came in and said ‘this is wrong; we shouldn’t be threatening a one-year-old girl. Nobody shouldn’t be threatened’.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Omoyele Sowore claimed that some former Nigerian leaders, who ruined Nigeria, are working for the emergence of Peter Obi to become president in 2023.
