According to Vanguard newspaper, the African Action Congress, AAC, on Wednesday disowned human rights activist Omoyele Sowore as its presidential candidate.
This is even as the party alleged that Sowore was allegedly hoodwinking the public and collecting money from unsuspecting victims.
The National Chairman of the party, Dr. Leonard Nzenwa made this known in a statement he signed and made available to journalists in Abuja.
Leonard further stated that since June 02, 2022, the ‘expelled’ Omoyele Sowere, allegedly commenced working with some forces within and outside the party with the aim to disarray the party, stating that, “it wouldn’t see the light of the day even as the party remains civil, responsible and law-abiding.”
“Fact is, his expulsion from the party with his ills is for this same reason and will do the party no good to embrace such despicable behaviour from an individual that nobody would want to relate with.
Our next push is to ensure that his name is delisted as our great party’s National Chairman and transmit all our candidates that emerged from our nationwide primaries. We are not relenting on this end.
“All Leaders and State Chairmen are therefore directed to be on high alert as they can be called upon at any time. Finally, we wish to thank all party faithful(s) for their prayers and support”, Leonard added.
