Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), says he needs no endorsement from the people who ruined the country.

Mr Sowore said he would rather have the endorsement of the citizens of Nigeria over that of “people who have ruined Nigeria”.

The activist spoke in an interview with Arise Television on Thursday.


Mr Sowore’s comment is on the heel of Peter Obi’s endorsement by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

On January 1, Obasanjo in an open letter to Nigerian youth and warned them of the dangers ahead if they fail to rise and defend their future.

The former president, endorsed the candidate of the Labour, saying Peter Obi “possesses the qualities of a leader who will be a true president of this country by guaranteeing justice, equity and fairness for all Nigerians”.

In the same manner, two days later, Edwin Clark, an Ijaw national leader and convener of PANDEF, also endorsed Mr Obi.

Mr Sowore in his reaction to the gale of endorsement of Mr Obi said he needs “alliances” of Nigerians and not recognition from past leaders of the country.

The founder of Sahara Reporters added that he would never visit the homes of former leaders to beg for recognition.

“I’m interested in alliances. People can endorse without having to denigrate themselves,” the AAC presidential candidate said.

“But, my own position in this particular case is that I don’t need the endorsement of people who have ruined Nigeria. I am very clear about that. I am not going to the home of a former president who destroyed this country to say, ‘hey, please endorse me so that I can be like you’.

“The kind of endorsement I want is from the people who decide who their leaders should be.

“People who are on the departure lounge of life, technically, should not be dictating the future of young people.”
