2023 presidency: Enugu AAC dumps Sowore, endorses Peter Obi

Omoyele Sowore, the party’s presidential candidate, has been dumped by the African Action Congress (AAC) chapter in Enugu State.

The statement was made by the party on Wednesday in Enugu during a news conference.

Kene Ogbodo, the AAC’s candidate for governor of Enugu, told reporters that the party has endorsed Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s nominee for president in the 2023 election.

He asserted that Sowore, who is both the party chairman and the presidential candidate, had demonstrated himself to be an undemocratic and had thus prevented prospects for inclusivity.

Ogbodo said, “Obi might not have the full answer but he can actually start healing the wounds of the country.

“He is a man that has changed the political landscape in Nigeria, dismantled APC and PDP.

“Members of Action Congress here in Enugu hereby endorse Peter Obi instead of our presidential candidate, Sowore who has no pathway to the presidency. We have dumped his aspiration

“Sowore stands for one man band, he is inexperienced, he should continue with his activism.”

He announced that they would go all out to campaign for Obi in the remaining few hours.

“We make sure that undecided voters will come out to support him.

“We have nothing to do with Atiku and we are not supporting Tinubu.

“I am still in the governorship race, so we have nothing to do with LP in the State, but we are supporting Peter Gregory Obi for President,” he declared.
