The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has given reason why he will not collaborate with the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Sowore, who also said he will never collaborate with PDP, APC or any of the appendages said people have different ideologies and convictions. He spoke via an audio obtained from Objectv media.
He said he fought for Peter Obi to ensure he was reinstated as the Governor of Anambra when he was impeached in 2006, but he is not going to collaborate with him.
“If you go to my timeline, they say, why don’t you join Peter Obi? I want to push it out for those of you who say this and address it. I’m not new to Peter Obi. When Peter Obi was kicked out of power in Anambra by Andy Uba, I think around (2006), I fought to ensure that he regained his position back. Andy Uba spent 17 days as Governor of the state and the position was reverted back to Peter Obi. I didn’t know Peter Obi then. I never met him.”
He said he finally had the opportunity to meet Peter Obi with an associate and the former Anambra Governor said publicly that, this is the guy that helped me regain my seat.
He said Obi called him in 2019 when he was Atiku’s running mate and asked if he would like to work with them. He said he declined and told him he will never work for PDP or anybody associated with PDP.
He said because people have different ideologies and convictions which they have maintained after 30 years, they cannot be modified and pushed in the direction of a particular candidate. He said he understands people are free to say this is the person they want to follow.
