Meanwhile, Sowore has come out to give reasons why he would rather prefer to be endorsed by millions of Nigerians rather than former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former head of state, Gen Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida.
According to him, he was sorry he won’t have been able to accept an endorsement from any of the past leaders because he sees them as enemies of Nigeria.
reports that Sowore took to the micro-blogging platform Twitter to explain that he would rather prefer to be endorsed by millions of Nigerians who have no billions of cash.
The AAC flag bearer in a video on his Twitter handle pointed out that accepting an endorsement from Obasanjo or Babangida would be unfair to the people of Odi and Zaki Ibiam as well as slain journalist Dele Giwa.
He advanced that “Total liberation is the only solution for Nigeria. Of course, I want to win as president of Nigeria but it is not about my ambition but about the people of Nigeria hovering in their pain and anguish in their millions languishing in insecurity, hunger and starvation.
“I won’t be able to take the endorsement of Obasanjo and Gen Ibrahim Babangida.
“I will rather be endorsed by the very masses who have not billions of naira in their accounts but are in their millions. I would rather be endorsed by the oppressed who beat the brunt of this vulcaniser economy, which has been imposed on our people and has brought untold hardship.”
