Peter Obi is part of the old system, not change Nigerians need – Sowore

Omoyele Sowore and Peter Obi LP presidential ticket

The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, has said that his counterpart in the Labour Parrty, Peter Obi, is of the old system and not the change Nigerians need.

Sowore stated this on Friday during an interview on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today.

According to Sowore, the former Anambra State Governor was part of the old system of politicians that crippled the nation’s fortunes.

He said, “Peter Obi is part of the old system that I’ve always fought against. I understand where he is coming from. This is 1999 repeating itself – Nigerians want change, some young people are genuinely interested in change to a different direction, and then they are presented with somebody who worked for the establishment; somebody who has been in the Peoples Democratic Party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, came back to the PDP, and now in the Labour Party. We can be emotional about it but that’s the truth.

Responding to if he feels threatened by Obi’s candidacy, he said, “I don’t see Peter Obi as a threat. He’s not new to the rotten system. Somebody who was Anambra governor for eight years . He didn’t build any schools, he didn’t build any industry, he didn’t build a power station. He’s not my kind of progressive.”
