Why I won’t Work with Tinubu – Sowore

The former presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2019 and 2023 general elections, Omoyele Sowore said he would never accept any invitation from the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration led by President Bola Tinubu to work with the government.

In an interview on the “MIC ON For The Independent Mind Podcast” anchored by Seun Okinbaloye, Sowore stated emphatically that Tinubu’s government didn’t have the “bandwidth to accommodate our ideas.”

Sowore also expressed his disagreement with the idea of forming alliances with the same political parties that aimed to “steal and rob the Nigerian people of their commonwealth”.

He criticised the APC for being an alliance of disgruntled PDP members who came together to form the party.

Sowore said, “The APC became an alliance of disgruntled PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) people – the Sarakis (referring to former Governor of Kwara State and former Senate President, Bukola Saraki) of this world, Amaechis (Rotimi Amaechi – former Minister of Transportation and former governor, Rivers State) of this world, all of them came together and formed the APC; alliances that are aimed at stealing and robbing the Nigerian people of their commonwealth”.

When asked if he would consider working with the present administration, he replied “No, they don’t have the bandwidth to accommodate our ideas.”

Speaking further, Sowore noted, “You think that the DNAs of the new group in alliance or the mega party will change because Peter Obi has new followers? Was he able to change it when he was in PDP? Did he change it when he was in APGA (All Progressives Grand Alliance)?

“Why are you lying to yourselves?” he asked, adding that the only two people that rejected the SUVs that the National Assembly procured and shared to the members of the House across party lines were “some northern kids”.

One of them, he said, was Mohammed Bello El-Rufai the son of the former governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai.

Sowore also shared his personal experience of being denied his NYSC certificate for opposing the Sani Abacha regime.

Sani Abacha was former Nigeria’s ruthless military Head of State, who ruled the country between 1993 and 1998. He died in office and was buried on June 8, 1998 in Kano.
