2027: Sowore speaks on joining Atiku, Obi alliance

Human Rights activist, Omoyele Sowore has declared that he will never be part of an Atiku/Obi alliance, describing the proposed merger as a mega fraud.

In an interview with Pulse, the former presidential candidate said although he had not been contacted yet, his position is very clear.

He said:

“Obi’s alliance is clear. He’s with his elder brothers, Atiku and the rest of them.

“I don’t crave Obi’s followers, and I cannot be in an alliance with him. If people who were misled to join him now feel that they have seen the light and want to join us, I’m happy to welcome them.

“His heart is with the PDP, which ruled this country for 16 years. Obi was Jonathan’s economic advisor when the PDP stole the most money during their tenure.

“So, what are we talking about? The problem again comes back to how we like to deceive ourselves in this country. You see, all the narratives we have been able to debunk since then. “Oh, we need experience, our country is complex, and we don’t need schools.” All these are narratives packaged to divert attention from what good governance should be.

“I cannot be part of a mega fraud. Pat Utomi who is trying to form mega party is Tinubu’s boy. There is a video of him dancing with Tinubu in his house. I have never been to Tinubu’s house before.

“So all these guys who are claiming to create a mega party have been in the process of creating a mega party forever. They were the ones who created the APC as a mega party. Pat Utomi was part of that. He ran in his state, I think, as a senator.

“These guys know themselves, but once in a while, they would put it out there that they want to create a mega party.

“A mega party in Nigeria is a coalition of mega political criminals — the ones who are empowered and trying to go and loot. I cannot be a part of anything that will retain an APC in power or bring back a PDP — never! I just want to be clear about that.”

When asked if he will contest the 2027 presidential election after losing twice, he replied:

“I’ve only contested elections twice, that was in 2019 and 2023 and I explained to you from the beginning of this interview that the odds are against us in 2027.

“Coming to become a candidate six days before the election. I was restricted to Abuja for most of the periods of the 2023 election itself, so I couldn’t campaign.

“Is it true that I don’t believe in our electoral system as it is presently composed? Yes, I don’t. But by contesting this election, we are also throwing up the contradictions in the electoral system so that you would understand why we said to you the elections can’t cure Nigeria’s governance issues, you will understand why we say so.

“I’m sure you guys know we don’t hold elections in Nigeria; we hold a selection process.

“And we’re not going to change the country without people taking the next step further by saying, “Look, we know how the system works, and we’re going to defeat it.” And that’s where my own revolutionary idea starts.”
